Party Post- Kentucky Derby

 Derby Birthday Party!
I made the official derby dinner, Kentucky Burgoo with cornbread 
and of course, Mint Juleps.
 Red roses for decor.

Everyone dressed in their best Derby hat.

Party Post- CrAfternoon Delight #2 Balls!

I've had balls on the brain ever since Brini Maxwell came out with her Balls cookbook.
So I made a cheeseball covered topiary and meatballs with multiple dipping sauces.




 I tried to make a Fauxcroquembouch; it didn't work. 

I think the cocktail was wine with melon balls.

Ball painting was the craft of the afternoon.

Party Post- CrAfternoon Delight - Poptails with Friends

I'd been watching Mad Men and seeing booze popsicles online.

Boozy poptails and cold soup popsicles while we made friendship bracelets.

Party Post- CrAfternoon Delight Pom - Poms

My first CrAfternoon Delight craft party.
This was #1- Pom Pom Garland.


I will be pom-pom-a-thon-ing the above, adorable pom-pom garland for my holiday decor. Wanna join me? Nothing fancy, just an afternoon of crafting with cocktails and nibbles.
Kids are welcome (their little hands are perfect for making teeny tiny pom poms.)
I will have some yarn on hand, but feel free to bring your preferred color palette. Bubbly drinks and finger foods will also be on hand.

I can't remember the title, but these appetizer cups came from an amazing retro party book.

This gave me the perfect opportunity to try out my new Silhouette cutter.

Signature drink; Vodka Punch. I need to do the floating sign idea again.
