Last Friday I hosted my first dinner party ever and it was a fabulous time!!! Shopping, decorating, cooking AND serving 8 of my girlfriends was no easy task but the end result was definitely worth it!
Loved how my table turned out!
The key to a lovely table...FRESH FLOWERS & CANDLES!!! Trust me, it changes the whole mood. I had flowers and scented candles all over my apartment with Asa (soulful Nigerian artist) playing in background to make it nice and cozy for my guests.
1st course was a Tomato Feta Salad with homemade croutons.
2nd was roasted chicken with homemade mashed potatoes.
Dessert was a fruit parfait. I made this ages ago, but I couldn't find the recipe so I kind of made this up...lol...everyone enjoyed it nonetheless!
Pitchers of Sangria were made earlier so we drank good throughout the night :)
The girlies minus Cece and Shamirra!
Sent the girls home with these little takeaway boxes with mini cupcakes inside :)
New addition to my apartment... "Luv Can Be So Blind & Strangely Blissful Don't Sweat The Small Stuff"
Good times all around! I'm telling ya'll...a good girls night is oh so necessary every once in a while!
Last week I received the sweetest email from Jen of Hylo Boutique inviting me to their NIC*FISH event that Thursday! I hadn't heard about it so I was super excited to go and of course I dragged my friend Sophia along as well!
Love the display!
Dominique and her friend! We had a great convo and I'm sure I'll be seeing them again!
The DJ was really good! Is that a pineapple?!
Dominique rocking one of the designers pieces in a really cool way!
My boo thang Sophia!
H&M denim shirt, Current+Elliot boyfriend jeans, UO necklace, Charlotte Olympia Wedges, Givenchy Purse.
Jen & I! The event was fabulous! Jen did an amazing job as usual!
Drinks were served in these cool mini jars!
And later...Sophia and I headed across town to our new favorite spot..Barbuzzo. Literally the best pizza I have ever had in this country! Best ever in life you ask?....little cafe in Switzerland G & I went to a few years back...till this day no one has made the cut!
