Last year, right before we left for the summer we had a s’mores party.
It was so fun, we decided to have another this year (it doesn’t hurt that our backyard is way nicer at this house than it was at our last house).
We provided the standard s’mores ingredients and then had everyone bring something extra fun.
And our friends did not disappoint.
There were cookies to use instead of graham crackers, homemade caramel, a variety of dark, milk, and toffee chocolate, Reese’s peanut butter cups, raspberries and bananas, and cinnamon and chocolate graham crackers.
I had a cinnamon graham cracker, marshmallow, caramel sauce, and dark chocolate s’more and . . . well, I shouldn’t say any more because I don’t want to make anyone jealous.
I love a party where the kids can just run around outside and the adults can visit.
And where other people offer to hold my baby so I can eat another s’more (peanut butter cup, marshmallow, and plain graham crackers the second time).
Last year, we were all huddled around the fire, wearing jackets. This year, happily, it was perfect sandal weather.
It was just a perfect evening. Plus, several people stayed and helped clean up so by the time the last person left, the only thing remaining was a pile of candy on the kitchen counter. That’s the kind of mess I know just how to deal with.
And last year, we borrowed a fire pit, but this year we bought our own (when we couldn’t FIND someone to borrow one from) so I see at least a few more s’mores parties in our future before we leave North Carolina.

We had planned/designed/made most of the fun event details by the time that we hired this event management lady, and she did a GREAT job coordinating with us and with all of the vendors to bring everything together to create a magical and cohesive environment for our event.

We don’t even use plain graham crackers anymore. We like fudge stripes and chocolate covered grahams. We also love a jar of Nutella. I will add Reese’s to our next smorgasbord!
