  • Thumbs up from me!

    The only thing I might do is have a stash of snacky things ready for later in the evening.

    And I don't know what a blueberry moonshine shot is, but I'm pretty sure I want one!

    Good thinking.  I am definitely saving half the sandwiches for later but will also get some chips/chex mix type stuff.

    We were just in Gatlinburg and they have a moonshine distillery store with a ton of different flavored moonshine so we brought some home for our party.  It is 40 proof but pretty smooth!

  • Yum, Yum, Yum,  I think everything looks awesome.  If you need an easy "make-ahead" Orzo Salad recipe I have a few....  but I don't think you'll need one.

    Have fun!
