Birthday Party Shenanigans

This past weekend I held a 50th birthday party/wine party for my friend, Amy.  It was a big birthday for her this year and she was adamant that she didn’t want any attention made to her.  Well.  That didn’t hold out.  Not only did our coworkers know, but we brought it to the attention of our 125 fourth graders!  In the end, I know for a fact that she had a great day!

Here are some peaks of the party shenanigans and the decor, complete with DIY initial wine glasses for all of the guests.  This tutorial will be coming to the blog this week!



I printed out these cards courtesy of Etsy.  Since each guest brought a bottle of white and a bottle of red, we had plenty of wine to sample.  This little card gave them the opportunity to keep track of their tastings and what they thought of each.


Besides wine, we had tons of snacks!

My girls!  Love.


And thank you to this guy for helping me bring the night together!


My team just couldn’t get it together for a photo!

A little blurry….but here’s the whole gang!!


And here’s to wishing the birthday girl a wonderful, happy and healthy year ahead!  xoxo


Just like I love fine wine and dark chocolate, I'd love to hear from you too!
