Wedding Weekend & Crawfish Boil

We had a very busy weekend! One of my best friends got married on Saturday at the Tutwiler Hotel in Birmingham, AL. It was absolutely gorgeous! Check out this hotel!

This is a night view of the hotel. Can you image having guests seated in front of the hotel and standing on the front steps getting married... It was beautiful!

A tradition that our friends have started with each other is all of the girls arrive really early on the day of the wedding, have mimoas and enjoy girl time together! This is one of my favorite things to do! We bond and the bride gets to relax a little!

Not only did we have a wedding this weekend, but we also attended a birthday party after the reception. A friend of ours had crawfish boil for her 30th birthday! I love any excuse to eat crawfish! Yum!!

Attending her crawfish boil made my mind wonder... I love crawfish, we have a new house with a large back yard.... maybe we should start having an annual crawfish boil! Love it!

Jenny Steffens Hobick post photos of her annual clambake... I love her ideas! Check out the photos below. You can check out her blog Everyday Occasions.

Really cute simple invitation. Mine would say Crawfish boil instead of Clambake.

I love Jenny's table setting as well! Casual yet elegant. Jenny's clambake setting may be a little too formal for our carfish boil. Typically, we lay newspaper down on the table and dump buckets of crawfish, corn & potatoes all over it! It's a little messy!

Lay some newspaper out, get some cheap buckets from Target & you are set!
