Game Night Party

Every mom could use a good opportunity to spend quality time with her kids.  That’s why Laura Lee {of Laura Lee Photography} decided to host a Mother & Son Game Night for some of her friends.  She set up several tables around the house, with different games at each one, and provided easy-to-eat snacks that both moms & sons would enjoy.  I love all the decorative touches Laura incorporated using game pieces.  Read on for Laura’s own description of the night and to see her beautiful photos…
“I intentionally kept the decorations kind of feminine for the moms. We mothers of boys see enough “Daddy’s little All star” navy blue!
When the guests arrived they received mustaches. My middle son photographed them on the background paper and I am mailing each mom a photo from the party. Inside we had wine and fun drinks for the moms, lemonade and water for the kids. All over the tables were snacks like the ones I remembered loving way back when my parents played bridge.
Once all the guests arrived I called the moms one table at a time to the kitchen (there were about 40 people so I had tables scattered everywhere!). They chose from checkerboard sandwiches, homemade pulled BBQ sliders, sweet potato fries, cole slaw, pickles and strawberries. I intentionally chose the menu so that forks would not be needed. For dessert we had domino cookies from a recipe I’d found on Southern Living.”
“I cannot express how fun it was and how grateful the moms were who attended. Having a party just for our guests where they needn’t bring a thing was a treat for us all. I think it will become an annual tradition. People are still talking about it. (The dads loved it too. The dads of boys got together at a local sports bars. The dads with girls were happy to have a free night for a special date.”

Thank you for sharing this special night with us Laura!

I hope all the moms out there are inspired to host something similar! Cheers!
