Closeup of the beaded detail.

The Jewelry: a borrowed Chanel necklace from my mom and the diamond earrings my parent's gave me on my wedding day.

The Speciality Drink: peach sangria.

Some flowers from the Downtown LA Flower Mart.

The set up.

All the little details: the pink and white straws were from my bridal shower and the cocktail napkins and fleur de lis bottle opener are from the wedding.. Fresh limes, Perrier, Grey Goose, Moet, limeade and Waterford glasses (our first time breaking them out) are always a hit!

More flowers...

The cake from Sweet & Saucy.

Sugar flowers and glitter dust close up.

Cocktail bar.

Cheese and cracker spread.

The flowers from my Mom's garden.

Our framed wedding photos arrived just in time!

The lovely flowers from my Mother and Sister-in-law.

Ranunculus in my ultra girly, pink bathroom.

Right before the party started in my Gatsby gear.

The whole Gatsby gang outside of dinner... We had quite a fun time coming up with 1920s names for each other while we waited for our table.

My handsome husband and I.

Such a fun night with some of my favorite people in the whole wide world! XO
