September 11th



The details

Vive le France!


a toast!

I hosted a small birthday party last night for my friend Shoshana. She loves all things French and having never spent time there, I did what I could to accommodate her francophone ways with a bit of cliche food: croissants, cheese, bread, wine, chocolate, nuts, and of course girly pink wine.

Vive le France!

She was tickled rose.

Sweet birthday group

Happy gang of girls

By the end of the night, I had a gaggle of girls laughing hysterically and listening to stories about everything from Costa Rican adventures to living as an Orthodox Jew in college and what we really think of the statue David. Ahem. It was a breath of fresh air and I felt my hostess spirits renewed.

    I have no idea how or why you are not married. Simply amazing what you put together!

  2. Girl time is awesome! Looks fun!

  3. It looks like lots of fun was had, she’s lucky to have you as her friend!

  4. Sounds like a nice low-key evening with friends. 🙂

  5. How FUN!

  6. It all looks yummy, as always. Did poor Matty excuse himself before the David talk?

  7. I’m sure your friend will remember this birthday party forever. You’re the best of friend Kelli!
    P.S. Did you receive my envelope?

  8. I saw the two wine glasses and thought it may have been a romantic evening for two. But, just the same, I’m glad it was a fun & festive celebration!! What a great friend you are.

  9. You can’t go wrong with cheese.

    Aaaaah, cheese(s), how I miss thee…!
    (when people ask me “so, what are you going to do when you go
    back home ?”, my first answer is always “kiss my mum until her cheeks hurt”, just after that comes “and eat lots of cheese”. Yep.)

  10. She is very lucky to have such a wonderful friend. The party looked lovely and loads of fun.
