Caitie's 26: Part 3


Phew. I'm sitting with The Boy right now, eating Thai Food takeout, watching Back to the Future Part III in his top-floor apartment with the windows open and a breeze shooting in and I am a happy camper. Especially because I am sitting here blogging to boot! It's the little things in life that excite me. Especially because watching Biff will forever make me ecstatic- one of the best villains of all time is he not?

Anyway, for the final celebrations of my birthday my best friend Megan threw me a gorgeous brunch at her Parent's house. As I had stated as I asked for suggestions on my blog, I wasn't sure what i wanted to do for my birthday. I didn't want a huge shebang but I wanted something simple, lovely and fun. And I'm so blessed that she took the reins and gave me a beautiful brunch with my girlfriends.

I arrived at her house and was welcomed by a plethora of food, a beautiful execution of place settings, a champagne buffet, Frank Sinatra, my beautiful friends in their dresses, sun and croquet. It was seriously perfect and exactly what I wanted. Albeit a few gals were hungover but hey, it ain't no thang to me!

Anyway, if any of you need fun ideas for a party...I highly suggest a garden party. Was perf, perf! And thank you Megan :)

Happy Thursday, Thursday friends!

You look pretty next to Megan's Parent's hydrangeas. and next to all of your gorgeous friends and fancy scrumptious looking food. You all look like movie stars. The croquet photos really take me back (40 years?). Your outfits are all lovely, the photos are wonderful, and it looks like you had a great time.

How wonderful! Not only is it such a lovely gesture of your friend to throw you a brunch party... but it also is the best way to gather all your loved ones and have a great time. I also love how you all dressed up. It simply looks like the best party. As it is my birthday end of November I never have the chance to celebrate in the garden, but I always use it to get into the Christmas swing :)

Krista said...

How can the day NOT be fun? Sinatra, your girlies and mimosas? PERFECTION! No one looks hungover, the girls clearly put on their big girl panties and delivered a good time! Love Mirandas maxi and Krisi's little "flip" of the dress in the last pic! Too fun!!
