A Holiday Party Gets Me Every Time

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.

    What a great post, Kelly! I love it! It really was a great party and Elizabeth is a fantastic hostess. I love that you searched the brigadeiro! I ended up not taking any pictures of it, so if you don’t mind I might “borrow”one of yours for my post! 😉 Have a great weekend!
