Strawberry Social

On Thursdays, we would like to give you a little glimpse into what we are doing and thinking. You may see an everyday adventure, a DIY, a coffee trip. Really, wherever life is taking us. Enjoy!

A couple of weeks ago Ais and Dad were driving up to the cottage when they came up with the idea of having a Strawberry Social! For my Dad, Strawberry Social means strawberries and whipped cream. But for me hearing the words Strawberry Social brings forth images of white wicker furniture, men in straw hats and most importantly, women in puff sleeves.

So pretty many thoughts Anne of Green Gables! ( sigh Gilbert Blythe)

Well, we decided to throw together an impromptu (that afternoon) Strawberry Social at our cottage for the family. We have a lot of family at the lake, which makes impromptu parties an awesome weekly occurrence. 

At 4pm, when the sun finally came out from the clouds, we popped the Prosecco!

We had delicious local strawberries, on angle pastry, whipped cream and chocolate drizzle! 

The Bro-in law went a little overboard with the chocolate drizzle on mine, which suits me and my chocolate obsession perfectly!

I may not have had my idolized puff sleeves at my first Strawberry Social but I did have delicious strawberries, wonderful company and I got to overlook my own Lake of Shining Waters.

Really is there anything better?
