BBQ Party

We've been wanting to invite a big group of friends over to our place, but with work travel schedule, it was just too hard to find the time. Finally, without much thought and preparation, we decided to do it over the 4th of July weekend. It was a blast!

We probably had about 40-45 people in our place but surprisingly, clean-up was a breeze. I could have easily overdone it as I did so in previous parties here. But this time, I did the smartest thing and just had food personally catered by a chef friend. Thanks Chef Louie!


Now that I know that throwing big parties is just this easy, I can't wait to plan for the next one!

This is my good friend Faye. She took all these shots in this post. She's my yoga buddy, shopping buddy, blog buddy and photography buddy. Well, technically, she does the photography while I only do the posing.

A few weeks before the big party, I invited her over for a test run of my grilling skills. She took this lovely shot of our new patio set!
