So, I have until May to plan this shindig so it'll be nice enough outside to use my fire pit, my outdoor dance floor, set up a horseshoes competition, and - if it's warm enough - water pistols.
I'm thinking it's a bring your own meat - or meatless imitation meat. I'm pretty certian there will be baked beans, corn on the cob, and saspirillas or rootbeer floats depending on how warm or fancy I get.
I'm thinking there will be a game or two, and I'm thinking there should be some sort of capture the flag/indian princess/school marm in the dark involving flashlights...and then an ingenious game I've heard of called ice skating, but renamed barn raising that involves a piece of spagetti and two strangers getting awfully close.
I'm looking for ideas for out door decor, more food ideas, and certianly costumes/invitation/a way to talk someone into wearing a barrel with suspenders and boxers. Oh, and possibly an idea for entertainment...like, should I get a projecter and put up a John Wayne pic or should I find someone who can bang a drum or play a fiddle?
