Missing photo of the Homemade Ice Cream served up in pint canning jars!

Beverages served were Orange Spa Water and Iced Tea



And to my dismay I discovered I never took a picture of the dinner buffet, which was Italian, Cheddar, and Jalapeno Sliders, 4 Cheese Mac n' Cheese, Ramen Slaw, Little Smokies, and Pizza Muffins!

what an absolute delight this must have been in person...your photos are lovely
that fabric strip bunting is fabulous...so much to enjoy

and that Peach Cake and I would get along famously I'm sure!

Everyone must still be basking in the afterglow of such a thoughtful and special day!

Happy Monday from rainy Virginia :)
