About a month ago (wow, I'm so behind!), we had our family Gator Party! The last time we were able to host a Gator party was back in 2009. We've tried every year since to make it happen, but Saturdays in the fall are always busy and this was the first year that we could party Gator-style again! The two most important elements to any Gator football party (besides the actual game), are the boiled peanuts-which I failed to take a picture of, but which were delish, and the real-life football field in our backyard.
Of course, we had to decorate with all of our Gator paraphernalia, and lots of orange and blue!
new frosting recipe. It's from my friend Melanie's cooking blog, and it is seriously life-changing! I've made lots of frosting in my life, and this one is better than any other recipe by far.
awesome Jell-o mold kit. It's kinda hard to tell in the photo, but these are little Gator head logos made out of Jell-o! I seriously put these on the table, turned around 45 seconds later and they were all gone! Apparently Gator Jell-o is a big hit with the kids!
At half-time, we held our own football game! The kids go crazy playing on the "real" football field!
