A Vintage Affair

In case it wasn't obvious by my previous posts on this blog, I really love to throw parties.  I blame my mom, she threw the best birthday parties when we were little and I guess it rubbed off on me.

This party was Audrey Hepburn themed and so much fun.  I love vintage everything so it was really nice to incorporate it into a theme.  All the ladies came in cute dresses and the first thing we did was give everyone an Audrey moment with vintage jewelry, hats and the big sunglasses.

 After our fashion shoot, everyone grabbed some wine or water and brushed up on a little Audrey trivia.

Angela won...of course.  We still can't figure out how she's cheating, but she's good.

Breakfast at Tiffany's followed and a trip to Mama's on the Hill for some delicious Italian food.

And of course there were desserts :)

Next party theme is yet to be decided...but here are some more fun pictures :)

An Indoor Garden Party

My mom had been  hoping to host a Garden Party this year, but was thwarted by cicadas on their one month spree of dive-bombing innocent bystanders.  In an effort to surprise her, my sisters and I threw an indoor garden party instead.

Happy Easter! (4 Months or so ago...)

Eek...really late on posting this.  At least I got it up before Christmas!

This Easter, in my effort to be named best daughter ever, I made cake pops for my family's church to raise money for the Heifer Project again.  Pictures below!
