Caravan Girl's Game Night

Ever played Caravan?  It's a super fun card and dice game.  I recently joined a group of 12 gals who meet once a month to eat, play and have a fabulous evening together.  This month it was my turn to host!  I had so much fun shopping for the prizes, (with the money collected from the previous month's game!) planning and preparing dinner and dessert, and getting the house ready for the big game night!  Minutes before everyone arrived, I ran around frantically snapping pictures to share with you!

The Prizes = I shopped at HomeGoods, Marshalls and Ross.  It's sure fun to shop with someone else's money!  I bought a variety of gifts for the home and garden.

Set-up = 3 game tables...

The menu...

Super easy and delicious salmon chowder.  Find the recipe here.

Yummy homemade rolls with butter and jam.  Link to recipe here.

Spinach salad with strawberries and poppy seed dressing.  Recipe here.

Vanilla cupcakes with amazing cream cheese frosting.  Recipe found here.

What a fun evening with a great group of new friends! 

Thank you for your sweet visit today!
Best Wishes and Blessings,

Linking up with the following fun parties:
Mingle Monday at Add a Pinch
More the Merrier Monday at DIY Home Sweet Home
Life Made Lovely Monday at Blessed Little Nest
