Marie Antoinette Party!

I recently went to/ helped organize a Marie Antoinette party fro my friend Andrea. We were inspired mostly by the Sophia Copola movie, which is a feist for the eyes, full of color and fancy.
Here are some photos from the evening. Enjoy!
Here's the lovely birthday girl Andrea!

We set up an area for people guests to adorn themselves for the party.

A simple Ikea fixture what made fanciful with lots of bright ribbons!

A very important element for an event like this...the food!

It was an amazing evening!

The Office Party Plans

I am FINALLY throwing Matt's Office party! It's at the end of the month, and I am so excited! I have been developing plans for this party for a while now and it should be pretty quick and cheap to put it all together. I have been doing a lot of "research" for this party ( you know sitting in front of the tv watching The Office, hard research). So far I have pulled together a menu and a very simple list of decorations. Oh my! I feel like the head of the party planning commitee!

On the menu so far:
-soft pretzels (pretzel day!)
-mixed berry yogurt ad french onion sunchips (Pam's favorite)
-deviled eggs
-cheesy pitas
-margaritas (ala a margarita karaoke Christmas)
-and of course coffee (the great incentivizer of the office)

The decorations will be simple. Balloons, streamers, and party hats will do the trick!
Does anyone have any tricks for putting a stapler into jello?
