Tomato? Tomatoe?

Living in New Jersey does have some perks. It isn't ALL big hair, Sopranos & "The Situation". If you head down south, Southern New Jersey is quite the opposite! The reason we are called the Garden State is certainly no myth! We are known down here for our legendary farms that produce corn, pumpkins, sunflowers & especially Jersey Tomato's! Nothing better than the tomato's you will find at the road stand farmers market down here. Found a couple of photos that peeked my senses...

Love the rustic look of this tablescape!

The simplicity of these salads are great for a summer cocktail party, no big messy trays, platters or bowls to clean up, just perfectly portioned throw away cups!

I thought this table was absolutely gorgeous for a late summer or early fall bounty harvest dinner. The colors alone make such a beautiful centerpiece and the breadsticks and olives just complete the whole look!

"Digging" Turning Two - Part Two, Food & Favors

Welcome to part 2 of "This kid is going to 'dig' turning two". Sorry it took so long, but I had a vacation thrown in there somewhere that I am back from finally.

This was the food table, we decided to go with hot dogs for the kids and 6 foot long hoagies for the adults which looked super cute with a measuring tape spread in front, but somehow I don't know how I managed to not get a picture of the sandwiches.

Kids food table, decided to keep it simple and separate so it was easy for parents to make their childs plate.

Veggie cups , which was inspired by Tori Spelling's kids veggie cups at a birthday party she threw for her daughter Stella. I saw them online and couldn't resist. The kids loved them.

Some adult beverages

Beer & Soda for the "contractors" and water and juice boxes for the "sub contractors"

The Cake. Was simpler to make than it actually looked.

What construction site wouldn't be complete without a box of donuts??

Dessert Table

Favors for all the little crew members. Filled with candy, stickers and mini-trucks.
