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.


This is the dessert table decorated before the desserts were laid out.

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 😉
