What an action packed weekend! I had an awesome install on Saturday and hosted my friends for Friendsgivingmas on Sunday. Honestly, I went into panic mode on Saturday night when I realized that I was totally NOT ready for guest and I was absolutely exhausted from more than a week of running.
Thankfully I have great friends who don't mind chipping in and bringing things, so my events usually end up being potlucks. Let's just say that's a great thing for someone as busy as I am.
I was most excited about decorating for the event. I've been dying to use my gold flatware and this seemed like the perfect time. I decided to go with mixed metals since
I had silver chargers and purchased new brass ones at the ReStore recently for $2.00 each!
After picking up some fresh flowers I ended up keeping things very simple. Alstroemeria is always a budget-friendly option and well....hydrangea are hard to resist.
I was really pleased with how things turned out and best of all it was super simple.
The food was fantastic and we all had a fabulous time! I may have just started a new tradition.
Did I mention that the paperwhites I planted in November decided to bloom just in time.
Hope you had a great weekend too!
