A Summer Soirre: Backyard Bash

With summer in full swing here in mid July it was the perfect time to have a few friends over and enjoy this time of the year.  Along with a few blog friends we will be sharing some of our fav recipes, tablescapes, and hostess gifts.
It is possible that you are starting this progressive dinner dinner right here or you might have come from Shelly's home where she shared delicious cocktails either way I'm delighted you are here!  I'm hosting appetizers out on our deck so come on out!

With the heat of the summer pressing down on us, I try to make all of our meals light.   Appetizers are no exception.  I often times think that people just over think and possibly over do for appetizers.  

Can't tell you how many times in 28 years Honey has called and said he was bringing someone home after work.  That made me always keep things that I could just kinda pull out and use.  Everyday items you have in the fridge or pantry work great for an appetizer.

 My new mantra is keep it simple! It is important to me that when I entertain it needs to look effortless.  Maybe this is because I nearly knock myself out when I do entertain! HA!

I'm so glad you guys came over and hung out while we enjoyed appetizers before heading on over to see the marvelous table that Atta Girls Says has set.  Ya'll save me a seat!!

  1. Such a lovely spot for these delicious appetizers!

    I am from Wordpress and it is sometimes hard to leave a comment on a different forum.

    Hope you see this!

    1. I'm so glad you stopped by! We lived in the Columbus Ohio area some 20+ years ago and loved it!!!

  2. I came over from Jamala’s post for the blog hop! So fun!

    1. Hey Nancy! Thanks for joining us! I'm happy to hear you're enjoying the party... ..the more the merrier! Hugs to you my friend

  3. Tamyra... you know how to lay a spread.. your chartreuse tray has just the right pickings for a pre dinner snack... you're right because sometimes you get full from the appetizers.. not realizing dinner is coming.. lol..

  4. Tamyra you’ve found the perfect recipe for appetizers on the deck—easy and delicious! I would definitely love to hang out at your home on a lazy summer evening. Thanks for always inspiring.

  5. Yum, what a delicious spread! So glad we are part of this progressive dinner together.

  6. Visiting here from Home on Poplar Creek. You ladies have done a great job with your parties! I love the charcuterie platter that you whipped up!

  7. Tamyra, you might call the simple but this charcuterie board looks like you have training in plating! Love this appetizer platter.
