I'm so excited to be planning my 2nd annual cocktail party again......
Last year I had it during the holidays but this year
I decided to host it in January as this is always
kind of a bleak social month.
Last year it was ladies only and while I know some hubbies
wanted to join I think were sticking with this rule....
I'm so thrilled to have a gorgeous dress that a friend found
in a consignment store.....I can't wait to show it to you.
Its vintage 60's which is the theme of the party.
When I first tried it on I got stuck in it and had to wait for the
kids to come home from school and help me get out of it!
Now it fits!
This was last years party and I'm so excited
because I'm down 31 pounds
since this picture.....
This year I'm going for Grace Kelly hair!
I'm planning the food menu to be from the early 60's also
and in my stash I found this vintage cookbook on appetizers
and It has at the bottom of each page the recipe for
the perfect cocktail to pair it with.....
The book is from 1958 and it was so cute because in the introduction
it says I think this cocktail hour is here to stay!
and stay it did.....
