Yesterday we had some great helpers who showed up to help replace our deck railings and posts. Yes, they gave up their Saturday to help us. So how better to thank them than to feed them dinner? The First Cookout of 2016 was prepared while I enjoyed listening to power saws, a pneumatic framing nailer, guy jokes and laughter, and railings being settled into place.
Here's our table and the spread! Separate recipes coming for the food.
S & P shakers, plates, solid red serving pieces and white saucers are Fiestaware.
Large oval white platter from Bed Bath and Beyond.
"Antware" platter and bowls, mustard / ketchup servers and glasses from Hobby Lobby.
