Grayce Lane's first party!

It's been awhile since I've planned, coordinated & executed a party/event.  We're hoping to have our big, official Housewarming Party this summer, but I felt I needed a little practice before jumping into such a detailed event.

My older daughter, Miss M, is finishing Kindergarten next week and since the school didn't plan any end-of-year parties, Mr. GLD and I decided "Hey, let's host a big End-of-School Family Picnic!"  These kids have had an awesome, first year of school.  If it were up to me, I'd have the entire class stay together throughout elementary school.  All of these kids are smart, fun, helpful & sweet to each other...I love that they've had such a fun experience this year.  It definitely deserves a celebration!

It started as a simple plan...just send a simple Evite out to the families of Miss M's class, grill some burgers & hot dogs and do it 'pot-luck' style!

This is where my inner party-lover comes in...and it is evident that I have been spending a lot of time hanging out with the sweet Nicolle of Libby Lane Press.

I'm now working off of a master list...things to do, buy, create (ok, so that part I totally left to the expert)...I'm obsessed with the details...oh, all of those little details!

And I've realized in the past couple of weeks, that Miss M's class & families are absolutely amazing!

One of the Dad's has graciously donated tables, chairs and a moon-bounce!  All of the families are bringing food & goodies.  Nicolle, well, what can I say...she's just awesome & donated her precious time to create some printables & labels for me.  She also introduced me to a super talented baker who is located nearby in Virginia.  

I am so excited for these cuties to be delivered on Saturday!
pinterest's the 'BEFORE'...stay tuned for some 'AFTER' photos & details!
