simply, a pretty party...

.... for a pretty friend

At each place setting was a wrapped, personalized favor,
 chosen specifically for that guest!

Table decor included glass and crystal candlesticks, rose petals and rhinestones.
I love the eclectic look of using a collection of wine glasses.
 It's easy to pick one up whenever you see something you like, here are a few of mine.

My stylish friend set her handbag on the table.

A fun tribute to our girlfriend, 'What we love about Andrea," on my chalkboard.

Love my girlfriends!
The two co-hostesses who helped with EVERY detail! (on the ends)
Seven kiddos are at one of their homes ordering pizza and playing Capture the Flag.
Myself and the birthday girl in the center.

Thanks for serving us, sweet husbands, while we properly entertained the guest of honor!

Pam! Your table looks so gorgeous, I love the color scheme! And...the chalkboard, little wrapped presents, yummy menu, and the collaboration of you and your friends to bring this together - how fun and memorable! Looks like a wonderful night! Thanks for sharing..... I'll have to borrow your table ideas!

You are so good! The table looks unbelieveable (love those napkins so much!) and I love the collected wine glass look too. What a party - your friend must have been overjoyed!

What a beautiful birthday celebration, complete with a gorgeous table and the lovely sentiment recorded on the chalkboard! And the husbands.... did they prepare the meal as well as serve?!
BTW one of my best friends in the world does the same thing with the collected wine glasses. Whenever I go to her house, she always gives me "my glass!"

Dana Frieling said...

That settles it...move over Martha Stewart, here comes Pam! Every single detail looks amazing.

Stacy CUrran said...

I agree with Dana...move over Martha! this is AMAZING. I absolutely love the colors. You should submit the table to a magazine. I'm not kidding

Amanda said...

What a beautiful party!!! Im sure your friend felt very loved! You should submit this to Hostess with the Mostess- they are always looking for glamourous party's.
