Last week, my friend Brittany hosted a pun-tastic book club get together. Our book this time around was Killing Lincoln by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard (but lets face it, Martin wrote it). It was a great book – I learned a lot more about a subject that I had studied time and time again throughout my childhood education. I’d highly recommend it to anyone. Even though it is non-fiction, it read like historical fiction – which is my favorite genre.
Brittany loves themes and our book club meeting was no exception. As you can see in the photos below, she had some fun with the menu by playing off of people and places from the book.
Cute right? I mean, I’m a big nerd, and LOVE a good pun so this was right up my alley. It made me think of how you can make regular get togethers a little more fun by adding small special touches that play to your audience. This year I’ve been including signature drinks at every dinner/party/gathering we have at our house. I’ve had a lot of fun picking out the perfect drink to pair with the mood and setting we are going for. It makes everyday happenings into memorable occasions.
What special touches do you like to add to your parties?
P.S. After decorating my mantel last week, I had to show you Britt’s adorable hearth!
