Presents & Thank You to Party Resources

Recently I was the lucky winner of a giveaway of entertaining books co-sponsored by Kate of Party Resources and Elizabeth of Pretty Pink Tulips. So glad I remembered to snap a picture of these books, beautifully wrapped by Kate, before ripping them open!
Park Avenue Potluck Celebrations has inspired me to throw a Kentucky Derby party this coming May. Did I ever mention I come from a horse-gambling family? Well, at least on my Dad's side. I've never cared much for betting on horses but I did have a huge thrill when I bet on 50-1 long-shot, upset Derby winner Giacomo a few years ago!
Wonderful recipes & a reminder that the presentation of a drink is so important.
Fun and inventive approaches to classic desserts.

Here's a modern holiday tablescape created by Kate for a party she hosts each year. Love the fresh, fun feel - to see more go here.
Here's a peek of holiday decor created by Elizabeth for her dining table. I want to find topiary reindeers like this! To see more go here.
