My Birthday, 2014

Hi everyone! Thank you for stopping by. This is my very 1st, call it trial post. What better to do a trial post with than a few images from my recent birthday dinner. Planning started real small and snowballed as the days went by, so typical of me! Every year I top what I did the year before. Any ideas for next year? Do share please! 

Pretty pink ruffled seat covers tied with pink ribbons, table top chandeliers, breathtaking floral arrangements all helped transform my home into a grand and breathtaking venue. The upside down candles over goblets arrangement stole the show, talk of entertain by the fire. A friend of mine loved the party decor so much so she encouraged me to venture into high end event planning/decor. Maybe I will, someday soon. Your thoughts? A violinist and cellist combo serenaded during cocktail hour as the two bartenders mixed up and served awesome cocktails. A short pink limo ride and a fabulous red carpet walk to complete the hollywood theme, three outfit changes, three Christian Louboutin shoes, a six course dinner to die for, 6 cakes, great music, great photography, 20 beyond fabulous girls, Chanel Rouge Coco lipsticks in favor bags, multiple fragrance samples courtesy of Barneys New York...OH WHAT A NIGHT!
