The time of year is perfect for an outdoor dinner party! Julie of A Reason to Get Together took advantage of the perfect weather and her love of Julia Child to put together a French dinner party in her back yard.
Julie had each of her guests bring a dish out of a particular cookbook as well as the wine that complimented the dish. For invitations, she used Evite which kept track of what everyone was bringing and avoided duplications.
This party was extremely budget friendly and Julie shopped her decor from previous parties as well as her local thrift stores and yard sales. For example, the ties on the backs of the chairs were strips of sheets she found at yard sales.
She created 60 YARDS of bunting herself that draped from the fence and trees. The same patterns of fabric were used as napkin rings.
I love the fabric flowers!
