Shrimp, Shrimp, Shrimp

The Invitation:

The reason the men came:


The hostesses: Laura, Mama, Molly and Shay (pronounced "shy")

The "silver":

The corn cob holders:

High Style: Gerber daisies in Mason jars

More High Style: sticks from the yard and clippings from the bushes!

The sunflowers came from Publix and the chalkboard from HERE:

The reason we chose a low country boil: the men cook!
(Harbert, Rob, The Daddy)

The Basement of Shay's parents' house! JUST LOOK at those tall ceilings!

Rob, Ashley (and baby Wilson), The Daddy

The Guests of Honor:

Shay's mom hand rolled the spring rolls!

The Menu:

Appetizers-
  • Veggies with dill dip
  • Goup (it has cream cheese and sausage in it! 'nuff said!) with flour tortillas
  • Chips and Salsa
  • Spring rolls
Drinks-
  • Lemonade
  • Ice Water
  • Various Red and White Wines
  • Flat Tire, Coors Light, Bud Light
  • Summer Brew- a concoction not unlike "hunch punch" from those good ole' college days containing pink lemonade, beer and vodka


In the Boil-
  • Shrimp (as big as a baby's arm)
  • Kalbosa
  • Corn on the cob
  • Red potatoes
  • Mushrooms (maybe the best part!)
  • Onions
  • Whole Garlic Bulbs
Desserts-
  • Lemon Squares
  • Fudgy Brownies
  • Baklava
Tausha's mom made the baklava pictured in the center! (A trial run for wedding favors: yum!)

Can't wait to see these two get married next month! It will be my first trip to Bristol, Tennessee AND Virginia. Didn't you know the city is in BOTH states?

what kind of mushrooms did you use in the shrimp boil? we use all of the other same ingredients for our annual summer shrimp boil.

Seriously ... next time you are in Nashvegas, you have to call us!
