Book Club: Killing Lincoln (Warning – Very Punny)

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.

AbraHamLincolnCute 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!

    Oh my goodness…this is just too much for me to handle! That is such a cute idea!! I love love themes as well with everything I do. It makes like feel a little bit more organized and put together. I do enjoy making my decor or details of the gatherings resonate with each guest…if it is a small gathering that is :) Even if it is just a simple, “Hey, I remembered you liked this and realized it went perfectly with the party!” I just feel that makes each guest feel valued and almost like a guest of honor if you will.
