BBQ on the Ironing Board

Spring is here... even though it doesn't feel like it.
Snow + tornadoes + hail + sleet = WHAT IS GOING ON???
And more importantly... where is that darn groundhog?

I'm not sure what to wear these days.
One day it's a winter coat + boots... the next day it's a spring jacket + flip-flops.
But, on those few days where I DO get to wear flip-flops... I dream about spending more time outside.

Between barbecues, birthdays, weddings and graduation parties - lots of you will be hosting outdoor events... sooner than later.

And, if you're looking for a unique way to entertain... look no further than your LAUNDRY ROOM.

I saw this cool idea last Spring... when I visited my cousin (Melissa) in California.

She lives with her husband and two kids in Huntington Beach.
Nearby is this AMAZZZING shopping center called The OC Mart Mix.
It's filled with boutiques, restaurants and bakeries.

It also hosts a farmers market EVERY WEEKEND in the parking lot.
Filled with fruits, veggies and FOOD TRUCKS.

Whenever Melissa and I get together... calories go OUT the window.
So, we ordered sweet potato fries...

... and grilled cheese stuffed with BBQ pork.

All the regular "sit down" tables were taken - so we opted to hang out by the ironing boards.

Each board was "decorated" with a little plant.

As for table space?
We had PLENTY of room to stuff our faces.
And (since we had to stand) - the tables were the perfect height.

So, if you're hosting a party this Spring/Summer... and need extra tables ASAP - 
get out that ironing board! Borrow one from your grandma! Go to the thrift store!
  (I'm sure they have lots of ironing boards for SUPER cheap.)

Just make sure you remove the yucky ironing board COVER... unless it's an adorable design!
