American Citizenship Party

Since I shared with you the momentous event of our Citizenship, let me share with you today how we celebrated that important milestone in our lives!

Let's start off with the DECORATIONS...

Yup, I brought out my Christmas Lanterns

American Flags everywhere

I think Brass goes well with anything Americana right? Think of our Forefathers ;-)

I brought out the wreath I made last year and added more flags

The Buffet Island

Yup, more stars up above!
For the food, we had everything "American" of course...

Chips, wings, Salmon, Salad, crabs, sliders, Mac n' Cheese, corn, rolls, etc

I like how my Wings station turned out - Had 3 types of wings (Roasted, Honey Barbecue & buffalo) & 2 types of dip (ranch and Honey Mustard) . I had Potato salad and Coleslaw on the side too

Red, White & Blue Desserts
Yeah, I'm that "rich", used this cute Benjamin Franklin Napkins for the party!!!

We had The Hotdog and Chili station down in the basement along with chips and Pizza

For a hug party like ours, adding stickers to wine glasses helps if your out of charms
It was a fun-filled night with our family and friends and we capped it off by watching a big Boxing match of our favorite Filipino fighter, Manny Pacquiao.  Everyone wore Red, White and Blue too to celebrate with us!


 Would love to hear your thoughts! Please share away...
