Parties With The Blended Blog

Happy Monday friends! How was your weekend? Ours was back to our normal routine of walking on Saturday and then I had a boat load of returns to make. #imaginethat The weather was gorgeous. Nice and warm, just the way I like it. There are fires a few hours from us and we are able to see a little of the smoke in the air even down here. Sadly, this feels like a pretty common occurrence in California.

Since it’s the first Monday in August (yes, I’m still trying to digest that), I’m joining the sweet ladies from The Blended Blog for their monthly round of questions. This month we’re talking PAR-TAYS!🎉

Favorite Birthday Party as a Child

My mom wasn’t a big fan of the birthday party…lol, but I do remember a couple. One in particular where we played a version of hot potato with a party toy that ticked like a bomb. 💣For my 16th birthday she made me the cutest cake with a little pink telephone on it. #favoritebirthdaycake

Do you like to entertain? Yes or No?

That would be a squinchy yes. HA! When we lived in Virginia I entertained a lot, but with our moves that has become a less common occurrence. I think once we get back to the south near our children, family and friends, I will do a lot more again. I used to host the holidays and always loved doing that.

What kind of parties are your favorite?

I loved to have showers and the kids birthday parties. I say loved, because I think you get out of the habit and at the stage of life we are in, I just don’t have that desire right now. Our current home isn’t laid out as well for entertaining as our previous homes were either. 

Big or Small parties?

Small to mediumish parties. I think being OCD with a dash of control freak thrown in makes entertaining more challenging. I need more of a controlled environment.

Favorite thing to do at parties?


Party food favorites?

Oh man, I love me some party food!!! Give me all the dips and finger foods. 

Hot Corn Dip

Fresh Salsa

Hot and Bubbly Stuffed Mushrooms

I’m dying to try Carrie’s recipe for stuffed mushrooms.

Favorite Flavor of birthday cake?

All birthdays at our house involve some form of chocolate. I mean, is it really a birthday without it? Two of our favorites (that y’all know I have shared before are That’s Incredible Cake and Chocolate Trifle.

That’s Incredible Cake

Chocolate Trifle

Balloons? Yes or No?

ALWAYS! Katie loved balloons so they were always present for all birthdays and celebrations. 

Best Party Song?

Anything by Earth, Wind & Fire

Do you like to dance? Yes or No?

Once upon a time I did, but Kent isn’t a dancer and I think this could be a case of “if you don’t use it, you lose it”. HAHAHA!

So are you a party animal or more of a wall flower or somewhere in between like me?
