these pictures were all taken before the madness hit on friday night. i should have gotten a before and after pic. it was quite an aftermath. lots of fun and the rain held out. our neighbors, aybuke and peter did the drinks and josh and i did the decorations and food. peter and aybuke concocted the best margaritas i have ever had. fresh juice from limes, lemons and oranges. the mason jars are my new favorite for summer entertaining. they look great with garnishes and you can also put candles in them and use them as votives. the best $9 for 1 dozen i have ever spent.
