on being a hostess.

so the shower went really well and, again, thank you all so much for your comments. i didn't get tons of pictures since i was running around making sure everything was getting done, but i did get one important picture - the cupcakes!
and i of course have to thank my co-host. since my family has moved away from northern virginia she and her mom opened up their home as the party venue, which i can't thank her enough for doing. she also discovered these margaritas, which involve both tequila and champagne. who knew it was possible to improve a margarita?!
and since i got a few questions about it, but they didn't really show up in any pictures taken at the party, my fruit high heels!
i love these shoes so much - i don't get to wear them a lot since they only really work during the summer season (or you know, winter trips to the bahamas - i'm sure i'll go on those one day) - and found them in a random vintage store in philly back during my college days. and on top of all of this fun goodness, i got to go home and see friends who i don't get to see often enough, including the bride from back in march (and her hilarious husband).
that's always the best part of going home again. i hope ya'll had wonderful weekends, too!

  1. Fabulous shoes! I've never seen a pair like it. It looks like you ladies had a wonderful time! And a party ain't a party without cocktails (that's what I say, anyway).

  2. Sounds like a great weekend! Planning a shower can be stressful, but its such a thoughtful thing to do for a friend. I love the 'I do' toppers on the cupcakes!

    Also, those shoes are too fun. Hold onto them, for extra motivation to get an island vacation one winter :)
