A warm summer night, a saucy book and great friends are the ingredients of a perfect evening.  I had such a nice time hosting book club this month.  Summer is winding down, so we soaked up the carefree feeling and warm weather as much as we could.  

Our selection was All We Ever Wanted by Emily Giffin.  We all enjoyed it, but just a note... if you've read her other novels, you'll be surprised at the content in this one.  Let's just say it's not for kids!

The only thing shallow about my book club was this pool. Ha!  I floated La Croix in little inflatable holders and the result was lots of fun.  I've wanted to do this for a while and this was the perfect setting.

I also busted out my Lilly for Target plates and accessories.

Dinner was Texas Caesar Salad followed up by a selection of desserts from a French bakery near my home.  They were so, so pretty!

I love a party favor, of course, so I used some things I had stashed away.  Book marks, Lilly for Target nail files, and a chocolate.

These flamingo cups held everything nicely.

It's always nice to send your guests off with a little something at the door.

I truly enjoy decorating, cooking, planning out a theme, and hosting, but it's the friendships that grow with each evening spend lingering around the dinner table that are my favorite part.  Here's to the last days of summer and many good books to come!
