Long over due… A Marie Antoinette inspired Birthday… For Me!

It is a travesty! I can’t believe I never posted these pictures after the big fuss I made about my party!

This was definitely this best party I have ever had; well accept maybe my 21st 😉

All the special people in my life were there and it truly was memorable.

The rest of the apartment…. I spent a solid month cutting out paper flowers to string together. Thank you Martha Stewart; except for the fact the it took forever!

Being Fancy!

This weekend was full of fun events! These are some of my highlights:

On Friday I went to a surprise Masquerade party for Robert Lang of Robert Lang Studios in Charleston, Sc. He was throughly surprised. So what makes this fancy you ask? Well most things I do are particularly fancy, but this one was special. It was at a penthouse at The Tides. It is right by the Arthur Ravenell bridge and had the most breath taking view.

I was so happy to use this occasion to whip out my black tie dress that I wore once for New Years eve two years ago in NYC. I also made my own mask. I found Fimo clay that I hadn’t used since I was a kid, but hey it was free! It was a catered event by Cru Cafe, which is a wonderful restaurant in Charleston. The cake was amazing too. It was done by one of their friends who is the pastry chef at Whole Foods. It was three-tiered. The top tier was pound cake, the middle what brownie-pound cake-brownie and the bottom was a hollowed out chocolate cake filled with Reese’s Pieces! The whole thing was covered in chocolate ganache. I binge ate this weekend 😉
