  1. This is over the top wonderful! I do a lot of entertaining at the beach and your detailed tablescape has given me a ton of ideas! I am hosting a family reunion next summer so I have pinned several of your photos for reference, thanks so much! Fabulous!

  2. LOVE this idea! Being a Florida gal, I love all things beach. During our “exile” in Philly, I hosted an annual beach party…in January! We had beach chairs, Beach Boys and Jan and Dean music,sand, “beachy” foods, and more. It was the hit party of the season…

  3. Hi Sheryl,
    What a fabulous party setting, it looks like so much fun and good food! Hope you have a wonderful week end and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
    Come Back Soon!

  4. I’ve got to come back for your Hush Puppies recipe – just for my hubby!
    That looks like such a fun party. We don’t live near a beach either, but I grew up in the northeast. I sure do miss it.

  5. Hi Sheryl,

    Red, white and blue never tasted or looked SO good!! I am impressed with your presentation, all the time and effort it must have taken and your crafty and culinary talents! This is simply all TOO adorable!

  6. Thank you for such a wonderful party idea! We just moved into our new home and hosted a party for all of our friends. I served everything on your menu, except for the popcorn which I switched out for chocolate chip cookies. As we live in Richmond, Ontario in Canada, we had a bit of an adventure finding the proper pot with basket, but eventually found one at our local Canadian Tire. I quadrupled the recipes as we had over 20 people attending and everything turned out beautifully! Even the dogs were thrilled as they all got a taste of shrimp and sausage. Thank you again for the terrific recipes and decorating ideas! I look forward to recreating more of your efforts!

    • I collect them from Target (in the dollar section) and The Dollar Tree Yvette. If you can’t find them there then you can order them fro Oriental Trading.
