    There’s a big story here. It’s about this swell lady, Elizabeth, pictured above. She makes gorgeous necklaces. Also pictured above. And those necklaces need a little lookbook. So Elizabeth threw a party. And this is it.

    So, a few bloggers got together to set the scene for a festive afternoon. And what’s a party without a hashtag? It was decided that it’d be #ECSHoliday. And the party was on.

    And lots of fabulous necklaces. Which we all grabbed to get the party going.

    And then we each grabbed a drink. The Blogger Bellini. Perfectly poured by Kate.

    And we drank them under the prettiest garland. Expertly strung by Janee.

    Elizabeth makes these great bangles too. I was half tempted to run away with this lettered one. But Fenway, the belle of the ball, probably could have caught up with me.

    The necklaces were the stars of the party, but the food came in a close second.

    Alaina made a delicious rosemary, bacon and white bean dip. I brought a tasty spinach and artichoke dip.
