Margaret's 30th birthday party was a smash hit! A couple pretty simple ideas came together for a really fun day with the whole family:
Supplies: Disposable coveralls bought for a steal on Amazon. Sharpies to decorate the backs with mud & dirt themed nicknames. Everything is more fun in coveralls.
Guests: 14 of Margaret's friends and family, ranging from grandmother to nephew.
Facility: Everyone met at a cozy pub at 2:00 to get the coveralls decorated and a few pints in before the mystery "dirty" adventure. At 3:30, we walked over to a ceramic studio for a session with the clay. We rotated between lessons on the wheel and slab work with molds. Messy and fantastic! We made a ton of pieces and a couple locals are going to return to finish the glazing process in a few weeks.
Food: After the clay session, we drove over to Shane's house for a big BBQ. Chips and salsa, gourmet sausages, fancy salads and cakes from the Madonna Inn.
