A Day of Celebration

Today was wonderful celebration of my homegirl confidante soul sister friend Emily.  She and her fiance Igs are getting hitched in a few short weeks so it was time to shower her with gifts!

Instead of the regular chicken salad and punch-arrangement, the hostesses held a tea party complete with canapes, sandwiches, scones and clotted cream.

It was lovely and civilized and relaxing.

A few snaps of the spread…

How gorgeous, no?

Tonight?  The bachelorette party.  We’re starting out at La Belle Vie (hello, foodie mecca) and after that, the rest is a lovely mystery.  The only two constants (beyond a good cocktail at all times) will be black dresses and heels.

Obviously.

Remember when I packed for D.C.?

Well, about that…

When you’re leaving the house at 1 PM, it’s just hard to know what you might want to throw on at 6 PM.  So, it should come as no surprise I brought three dresses and three pairs of heels to Michelle’s.

A girl has got to be prepared for anything.

How often do you put on the “right” outfit the first time?

What’s the most interesting bridal shower theme you’ve ever seen?
