{a sweet soiree}

I have so much to post about and I intended to blog about this last Monday but time got away from me.  I have had a busy and fun few weekends lately.  Last Saturday, I co-hosted a baby shower and then on Sunday, my sister and youngest niece came to visit me as they were in town for the weekend.  My sisters birthday was the previous Monday (June 4th) so I wanted to celebrate with her and my niece Sophia.

I had mostly everything set up before they came but I thought it would be fun to go to the store with Kim and Sophia to pick out some more cupcakes and get the pink lemonade we would be drinking. A cupcake stand was set up with a few gluten free & vegan-yet delish Raspberry Cupcakes from Sugar Mama. A bowl of Almond Shortbread Cookies left over from the shower the day before also were on hand {also by Sugar Mama- they broke into pieces on the way home from the shower- my fault but still so good} Strawberries were in a bowl waiting patiently in the fridge for the party and paper straws were waiting in pretty and non matching glasses on the table.  
I placed my sisters gift on the table in front of her seat.  When Kim and Sophia and I came back into my apartment,. I instructed Kim to close her eyes and wait.  I requested Sophie to help me add the chocolate cupcakes to the cake plate and add the cupcake flags.  She did so happily, excited to be included.  I poured the lemonade, retrieved the strawberries from the fridge and called for my sister to join us.  I think she was somewhat surprised that I had the table set so sweetly. I am not the kind of girl that usually has things like this put together...the trip to the store with her probably led her to conclude that I was totally unprepared-I was only about 35% unprepared. :)   The three of us sat down and enjoyed a little soiree on  a lovely Sunday afternoon.

Oh it was so fun! As you can see, Sophia was so happy to be a guest and was such a good little helper. 

Have a great week!

There were, of course, some challenging proposals -- of which more another time -- but these collections do shape the trends.

On one count, I would have been remarkably close (not much of an accomplishment, considering that this is my job); on the other, not so Hermes Birkin Bags has many, many loyal fans who love the brand's bags (not to mention the many other products it now offers), and I can't help but think that those enthusiastic Hermes Birkin 25CM Bags customers have to be the primary audience for such an expensive bag.
