(red velvet cheesecake hearts and red velvet whoopie pies!)
i've been itching to host a party in this new house. my mom gave me a love for entertaining. and even though the place is far from being finished...i just wanted my friends in it now!
so last night we had a little bit of a ladies valentine's night. plus, my friend brooke is a stella and dot stylist so we had a jewelry trunk show too. what's better than friends, and food, and jewelry?
maybe friends, food, jewelry, and my mamma.
and, lucky for me, she was there too!
per usual, i made way to much food and people brought things to share too. so if you are hungry and in durham, please come to our house and take some of it off of our hands. this was the favorite recipe of the night.
i feel so lame for not taking any photos of the ladies at the party. once the party starts it's hard for me to focus on picture taking because i just want to hang out. you know what i mean? so, not one photo of actual party-goers. but at least we captured a few of the details.
and just fyi,
my trunk show will be open online for another few weeks, so if you find yourself needing a fun new piece of jewelry to spice up your wardrobe (or want to give a hint to the man in your life for a good valentine's gift) just go to stella and dot and assign me as the hostess. if you don't know about stella and dot, you really should. it is one of my favorite discoveries in my recent adult life:
started and run by women.
worn by lots of celebrities.
and amazingly stylish.
yeah, that was a plug.
