how to throw an impromptu party

party tray
I had my friends over for a bonfire/sleepover Friday night, and at the spur of the moment, I decided to make it a mini surprise party for them (mini because it was only the three of us!). We're finally done with school, we're graduating in less than a week, and it was time for a celebration. It wasn't that hard, I mean, pretty straws and good snacks automatically make it a party, right?

Party favors also give an air of festivity, so I wrapped up a few small things I got from the store; nail polish, lip balm, a mini notepad, and a tin of mints.

lemon soda
These San Pellegrino lemon sodas are delicious, and they look so pretty! They are perfect for a party. For food, I made hummus, and got a few other snacks like cut-up veggies, pretzels, and popcorn.

How adorable are these straws? They are actually what inspired me to throw the mini party. I saw them at the store and decided I would come up with a reason to use them (I had to justify the frivolous purchase).

So gather all this together, light the firepit in the backyard, put on some good music,  and celebrate summer!
