Last Friday we surprised Haute Papier's Vendor Coordinator Julie with a surprise shower in celebration of her upcoming wedding. I'm a sucker for scheming to keep a surprise, and we managed to do it! With help from our spouses we had mini-margaritas in Patron bottles inspired by one of the most innovative caterers out there - Peter Callahan along with tea sandwiches and custom monogrammed cupcakes from DC's very own Georgetown Cupcake. Cheers to Julie & Skelly and their upcoming nuptials!
This past weekend, my sisters and I hosted a SURPRISE 30th Anniversary Party for my parents. Let me just say, I'm never doing a surprise party again! While the planning was SO much fun, the stress of keeping it all a secret and telling fibs was just too much! And to top if off, Old Man Weather was so cooperative with a week full of rain, that we had to change venues the day before! Alas, the party went off without a hitch and was, well, a surprise! They didn't have a clue! Stay tuned to see their reactions in Part 2 tomorrow!
