Meg and Chris’s Engagement Party

Tuesday, March 31, 2015

As per usual, time is speeding by like a freight train.  Our friends Lauren, Taylor, Caitlin, Emily, and I threw an engagement party for Meg and Chris on Saturday which was so fun but I kind of can’t believe it happened already.  I’m telling you what, having 5 hostesses is the ticket.  (Thanks ladies!)  All I had to worry about was cleaning the house, decorating, and picking up some cupcakes from Harris Teeter.  You wouldn’t it think it but HT can make a pretty great cupcake.  Just be sure to pick the whipped frosting for the vanilla.  I kept things simple by creating some food, drink, and banner signage that matched the invitations.  I had Corey steal a whole bunch of magnolia leaves from a nearby neighborhood (shhh!) that I made a couple of garlands with, and then I basically bought out Trader Joes’ flowers because they had ranunculus and eucalyptus for so cheap.

Oh!  And I bought some gold and pink ribbon and hung it up behind the dessert table using some Scotch tape.

The lovely couple.  Isn’t Meg starting to look so bridal?  She’s got her game face on.

All the fabulous hostesses sans me because I was taking the picture.  There is a pretty cute iPhone picture that I could show you as well that has me in it but that’s ok.  And because I’m in a hurry trying to pack for a quick work trip I don’t have time to show the pictures I took of guests but thank you for coming everyone!

Happy New Year!

Thursday, January 1, 2015

Happy New Year everyone!  We decided to throw a small party at my house this year with some close friends so I thought I would pop in and show you guys a couple of pictures.  These are kind of crappy because it was dark when I was able to take them.  And obviously, as per usual, there are no pictures of me and Meg.  Or me and Corey.  Tis a shame because I actually kind of did my hair for once.  Maybe Meg will find a picture of her and Chris to share with you guys later.  I hope you all have a nice day of leisure!  I know I will.

Snow Much Fun To Be One First Birthday Party

Friday, December 19, 2014

A couple of weeks ago, Colleen and I were so honored to be asked by a friend of ours to help her out with some calligraphy and photography for her precious son’s first birthday party.  Lindsey is an amazingly talented hair and makeup artist and stylist and has a blog that you guys should definitely be reading.  We have known her since she did our hair and makeup for Colleen’s wedding and I am here to tell you that she is every bit as sweet and charismatic in real life as she seems on her blog.  Her house is seriously a dream and she put together one of the most adorable first birthday parties that you ever did see.  For some fun Friday eye candy, do yourself a favor and go to her blog to check out the rest of this party.
