I wanted to share with you one of my favorite fun parties that we got to be a part of.. This was an introductory party for the New Orleans Saints players families at Coach Sean Peytons House in Mandiville, Louisiana . It was fun and casual pool party. The ladies even did second line umbrellas, which if you dont know what that is, let me take a second to explain what a second line is..
Second line is a tradition in brass band parades in New Orleans, Louisiana. The “main line” is the main section of the parade, or the members of the actual club with the parading permit; those who follow the band just to enjoy the music are called the “second line.” The second line’s style of traditional dance, in which participants walk and sometimes twirl a parasol or handkerchief in the air, is called “second lining.” It has been called “the quintessential New Orleans art form”
The wives of the football players, coaches and staff came from all over and they did not all know what a second line was, so Lisa (from Petals N Parties) (the party planner) got to teach them! It was a lot of fun!
Now back to the story..
The pool was FANTASTIC!!! You can see the slide built into the rock waterfall! AWESMOME! I highly recommend this type of pool for … EVERYONE!!!
For the kids they had a popcorn machine and a cotton candy machine and bounce house.. and even bobbing for apples.
It was a Hawaiian Themed Event and For the Catering, Pete (my awesome husband), Barbequed and created some spectacular side dishes! All the guests raved about how awesome it tasted!
Here are a few pictures I took from that day!
