We wanted to do one BIG party this summer. Something to celebrate our new porch, the long summer days and the best food of the year. So we decided on a shrimp boil party, also known as a low country boil.
We invited lots of our friends and neighbors and spent the day getting things ready. From shrimp and ice runs to kegerator relocations to picking up 1,000 fallen limbs from the yard to making salads, we were ready!
We donned our red, white and blue…
Set the table..
Turned on the tunes
Tested the keg
And the sparkling water keg!
Prepped the veg
Sniffed the flowers…
Shrimp Boil Party Time!
We did several salads and our company brought over some amazing dishes as well –
The Shrimp Boil Party Pot
Matt used his beer brewing equipment to cook the meal – meaning he could drain the water from the bottom and then we just dumped it all out on newspaper!
I felt a little bit overwhelmed tonight – so many people to talk to! I managed a salad plate, several glasses of sparkling water and a dinner plate with a few of each of our boil pieces.
The dessert table was incredible – a mix of Great Harvest and homemade sweets from friends
I think I had one of everything non-GH! So delicious!
We never lit the sparklers, but I know of a holiday coming up where they will be appreciated!
