Last night I invited some friends over for a painting party.
We did this cute Folk Art painting of a church...
The painting was done on blocks of wood. I bought 2" x 8" x 8' pieces of untreated lumber at Lowe's and my husband cut them for me into 8" x 10" pieces. They all turned out great. Everyone's was just a little different but all perfect in their own way. One friend even turned her church into a fire station to give to her dad!
But the star of the night for me was the drinks!
I saw this cute idea on Pinterest (yes, I'm addicted to Pinterest too) on making Sangria and serving it in Mason jars.
Go HERE to visit the website where I found the idea.
Instead of Sangria, I made a wine punch.
I used a chalkboard garden stake to write "wine punch" so the ladies would know what they were getting.
Check out my beautiful zinnias!!!
Here's how I made the punch...
2 bottles of white wine
1/2 cup Triple Sec
1/8 cup sugar
1 cup orange juice
2 cups club soda
Actually, I just eyeballed the OJ & club soda. I added more until I thought it was good.
I cut up peaches, strawberries, and oranges and put them in the jars before I poured in the punch. I chilled the punch in the jars in the fridge until right before everyone arrived.
Fill the jars with fruit and lemonade for a non-alcoholic version.
