We will start with the paper

10 Jan

Fmsphotoaday prompt was (I’m late….sue me). Paper.  Behold, my paper:


Carin helped me with the computer graphics, I added the embellishments.  This was the invite to a little brunch that my friend deon and I hosted.

And now for the party part:


uh huh.  My beautiful hobnail punch bowl and cups.  Those little cups are so stinking cute! Yummy slushy punch too.


Nevermind the long arm in the background.  Look!  More hobnail dishes!  And little twinkle lights overhead.  I love me some twinkles.


You know you wanted a closer up shot!  Babies breath in vases connected with little pink beads


Burlaps and lace.  It just works.  Even cheap lace table cloths from Walmart and repurposed burlap.  I like it!

Cake pop

Red velvet cake pop dipped in white chocolate, half dipped in milk chocolate, dipped in Andes peppermint crunch and drizzled with white again.  Finish with a little dotted Swiss pink ribbon.   love the ruffle on the plates.

White place setting


we topped the little fruit salad with some homemade granola and dollop of vanilla yogurt.  Yum.  No pix but we also served chicks in a nest( scrambled eggs in little hash brown cups), apricot sausages, rum raisin bread.

i love a giving a party.  Who doesn’t love to party?  Where’s the next party?
