Five Ideas For Hosting A Masters Golf Party

Happy Friday!!  Did anyone check out Masters coverage yesterday?  By the looks of this blog over the last couple of weeks,  you know I had the live stream on at work (and definitely will again today).  Now this weekend will be party time, and I have five ways to throw the best Masters Par-Tee.  Invite your friends to swing on by, and you'll be ready to entertain:
1. Set the stage: Start your party with everything green, yellow, and white - Masters colors.  Colorful paper straws, napkins, and plates are my go-to functional decor.  I love to add some fresh flowers, too.  Azaleas are always in full bloom at Augusta National during Masters week and tulips and daffodils just scream spring!  My favorite golf-themed trick is to put golf balls in the bottom of your flower vase with the water to add even more golf-pizazz.
2. Include the famous logo: If you've ever had the opportunity to go to the Masters, you know that they sell everything with that well-known sort-of continental America-shaped logo.  Whip out all your Masters logos, and you don't have any, you can buy one of everything on eBay: glasses, koozies, hats, tee shirts, and folding chairs!
3. Start early: Even though tv coverage doesn't start until the afternoon, Masters.com live streams Amen Corner, a few featured groups, and the practice area starting as soon as the sun rises, so partying can start bright and early!  Here's where the important part begins: the food.  The Masters concession stand is legendary, not just for the recipes, but also the prices.  Tickets might cost a fortune (unless you're lucky enough to get selected through the lottery), but the food prices have been the same for decades.  Taking place in the South, obviously the number one item for breakfast is the chicken sandwich.  In case you were wondering, at Augusta National, it would cost you all of $1.50!  My version is made with some Bisquik drop biscuits and fried chicken.
4. Lunch time: The inexpensive prices don't stop at breakfast, sandwiches at Augusta are between $1.50 and $3.00.  For the most famous pimento cheese sandwiches, I used a Charleston staple, Callie's Biscuits pimento cheese.  How cute are the little Masters flags, too?  They're so easy to make out of post-it notes and toothpicks, drawing the Masters logo on each one.  I cut the crusts off each white bread sandwich, and sliced it into four squares.  If pimento cheese isn't your style, other famous favorites at the Masters include egg salad, bar-b-que, ham and cheese, and turkey and cheese.
5. Leave room for the sweets: Now for the best part of the day: dessert.  Last week, I shared the copycat recipe for my favorite item on the Augusta National menu board: Georgia Peach Ice Cream sandwiches.  If you're looking for something chocolate, here is a recipe for some fun golf-inspired Masters cupcakes.
Now it's time to brew up a batch of sweet tea (or maybe some Masters Mimosas) and turn on the tv!  You can watch the Masters this afternoon on ESPN and tomorrow and Sunday on CBS.  Happy viewing!
