Hello, hello, Monday how the heck did you get here so fast?!
On Friday night we hosted our fourth annual Secret Santa and it was awesome. I was finally feeling better, and we had 18 friends join together for a crazy evening of eating, drinking & present opening.
We always put out snacks, but our friends always bring apps, so we had a full on selection, from egg rolls to veggies, to Bihon to a cheese board and more.
The next day was spent prepping for Marco’s birthday party–two parties back-to-back, yes, a little crazy but it went really well. I was a little apprehensive about having such a busy weekend after fighting such a horrible cold for three weeks, but it just finished up and the timing couldn’t have been better.
I had done some running around earlier in the week to grab decor, food and drinks, so all that was left to do on Saturday was prep the food and pick up the cake. We rented a suite downtown at the Andaz Hotel so we could host our friends.
The hotel is gorgeous, and the suite was like a little condo. It had one bedroom, a massive full bath and a small powder room. The decor was super modern and chic–everyone was really impressed when they walked in.
I created a little make-shift photobooth for the evening with a long gold garland and purchased some props to use. Since space was limited, I posted it up along the floor to ceiling windows & we captured some fun photos of everyone.
And of course, the cake! I ordered the St. Honore cake from Swiss Pastries which is to. die. for. If you love pastry, custard and cream puffs, you will love this.
The morning after & the view.
We cleaned up, packed up and headed home. Spent the day on the couch/Internet just relaxing and recharging and it was great. Just what was needed after such a busy couple days.
Hope you girls had a great weekend!
Also, today is Green Monday, which is another huge sale day & I posted a bunch of things I’ve recently snagged that are on sale in yesterday’s Weekend Shopping Deals post.
See you tomorrow! xo
