A few images from our small party for Andrew this weekend- I was so frantic I didn’t get to take a single shot but thankfully Sarah was there and capture a few snaps (mixed in with my pre-party instagrams).
The cutest pic of Andrew from when he was little- double stripes? No wonder I love him.
Yep- I went with the sputnik light. And I LOVE it. I also rented a black and white stripe tablecloth from La Tavola Linens, ghost chairs from PBD Events and pulled together a centerpiece from bunches grabbed at the flower market (in a Target vase).
Subconsciously bought Line 39 cab- perfect for turning the big 4-0. :) Bought a bunch of glasses from IKEA because they were cheaper then renting- a pack of 6 wine glasses for $4.75! The napkins I got through For Your Party.
Details from the house I’m loving.
The flowers- wanted them to be more English garden then uptight. Love how they came out.
The party begins.
Andrew’s favorite things- scotch and North Carolina BBQ!!!
My mom made one of her famous cheesecakes (Andrew’s favorite).
Another sunroom shot (complete with Baxter butt and knocked over books– but hey, it’s life).
Yesterday I spent in this spot on the couch ALL DAY with this view (never drinking champagne AGAIN. At least not until next weekend.) I have not spent a whole day in sweats on the couch since I can’t remember when and you know what? I needed it.
The party was great incentive to get our house done and now that it’s in a good place (minus dining chairs) we can get back to enjoying our weekend doing OTHER things like spending time outside, going to museums and movies and soon- working in the yard. FINALLY.
