A Convivial Celebration

We rang in the New Year with the best of friends in a convivial celebration!

Bestie E hosted a divine party to not only welcome 2011, but to celebrate a half-milestone birthday.

While all of the children were contained, entertained and eventually put to sleep upstairs, the adults nearly forgot about their littlest darlings while they donned plenty of sequins and downed loads of bubbly!

E’s home sparkled with festive touches.  I adored her hand stamped napkins and glittered candles.

Perfect for the Southern lady, we surprised the birthday gal with red velvet cupcakes…

And a few minutes later we cued the Auld Lang Syne as we counted down, chinked our glasses, smooched our honeys and welcomed all of the great possibilities of twenty-eleven.

We ended the night by kicking off our heels and trying out the singing, dancing and sports on XBox Kinect.

Happy New Year to you and yours and the happiest of birthdays to my dear friend E!

Cheers yall!
