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.
A quick pre-party shot of the living room with our new coffee table, side tables, lamps, rug and pillows. :)
The flowers- wanted them to be more English garden then uptight. Love how they came out.
Living room shot featuring my fave side table (similar) and Mitchell Gold chair- complete with arrangement sent over by friends.
The party begins.
Andrew’s favorite things- scotch and North Carolina BBQ!!!
The sunroom with our new Peter Dunham pillows which I looooove and a Dash & Albert indoor/outdoor rug.
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.
