Country Shrimp Boil Party

Don’t live by the beach?

BRING THE BEACH TO YOU!

I live in Tucson so my visits to the beach are few and far between.  I grew up in California and am a beach girl through and through.  So I decided this year I would bring to beach to me!  :)

This fun, casual, serve yourself party is the perfect way to entertain!  Everything but the boil can be made a day or two in advance.

  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!
