The Divine Miss M and her hubby hosted friends on their newly completed deck and welcomed summer with delicious food, great Cajun soundtracks, along with ice cold wine and lime-o-rita's!
Even the smallest party can be quite an undertaking when you are setting the scene to ensure the look, feel and vibe of the party is fun and festive. I love how Miss M chose bright pops of summer colors! She decided on sunny yellow- golds and vibrant reds! The melamine plates and green acrylic stemmed goblets were found at Target! Perfect....no need to worry about broken china and glassware on the deck. The red placemats were found at Pier One and the tablecloth was bought from Kohl's! I love the mix of patterns on the paper napkins too! The fresh flowers were purchased at the grocery floral department! The colors are perfect for a Cajun summer theme!

Spread the coconut-pecan between each of the layers, and then over top of the cake.
