Red & Green 2011

Oh what a night!  It was our annual Red and Green party last night and despite my aching head I wanted to share some pictures of the festivities.  Some guests managed to escape my lens but I promise you that everyone was wearing Red and Green and I love nothing more then a colour coordinated party...i find it very centering... : ) I was channeling my inner Martha Stewart and it totally worked if I do say so myself.. : ) We had a TON of food, alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages (for the babies mammas) and party favours!  Pulling out all the stops this year!  Check out my night in pictures...

 (chocolate centered cupcakes - Martha F%$#ing Stewart is right!)

I love, love, loved my get-up...vintage faux fur stole, vintage green broach, green dress and of course red lips and nails to complete the colour scheme

 My handsome husband with his festive green tie...

And the party favours...bottle cap ornaments! No big deal... ; )

 Striking a pose
 Hot apple cider with crumbled candy cane warms my heart...
 I love that we have pregnant ladies in the crowd...the non alcoholic items add an element of class that was missing in years past...

 The food table of massive proportions...not quite depicted in this shot, but it's all I had... Once all the food came out I was too distracted to take pictures, all I could do was eat.  We had chocolate covered strawberries, dips of all kinds, warmed pitas, corn muffins, CHEESE, mini potato skins..home made party mix just to name a few! Ugh, I have to stop talking about say I overindulged would be an understatement.

 Glamour shots...
 Da bump..

Such stylish friends we have... 

I love this time of year!  

Thanks for reading!
