Sunset Beach Gathering
With Labor Day around the corner I wanted to share a fun idea for a beach gathering. For a friend’s birthday she wanted to recreate a picture she had seen online of an amazing dinner at the beach. The picture had a low table, pillow floor seats and beautiful decor. Several of us worked together to make this happen. The table was made by her husband which consisted of two 4 x 8 sheets of plywood that was cut to make it easier for transport and drilled together at the beach. He stacked the plywood on top of 3 stacks of cinder blocks (2 each stack,) one on each end and one in the middle. One of her friend’s was in charge of decor which included beautiful white table cloths, towels and pillows to sit on, candle holders, and place settings. She even made a banner of torn extra fabric and strung it in the bamboo. Another friend strung lights in the same bamboo that was right besides our table. Myself and another friend were in charge of food, I made the tortellini bake that I posted yesterday and coordinated a potluck of other dishes. It was so much fun! We had at least 6 people stop us and ask what we were doing. As I posted yesterday, the sunset was beautiful! It was such a special night!
