Grilled Chicken Tasting Party

We invited a bunch of our favorite food bloggers to a Grilled Chicken Tasting Party.  Take a look at the festivities!

Party of 15

Our blogger friends!

Quick lesson on how to make the mini fires:
1.  Cut crepe paper in 3 inches strips
2.  Place them together
3.  Fold in half, then fold creased edge two more times
4.  Cut in thin strips (I used Martha Stewart's fringe scissors)
5.  Crinkle loose ends to create texture

TaDa!  Fire!

**Actual party on April 16th.
