Party Prep: It's My Party And I Can Cry If I Want To

Ya'll know I love parties so when it came time to celebrate Vanessa's birthday I went ahead and took care of the decorations. Because a party is never complete without decorations!

The party came together very nicely and I think it's because we all brought something to the table -- or in this case party. I brought the decor, Vanessa brought the food, Betsy brought the specialty deserts, Annie brought the wine and Jen did our hair!
I personalized water bottles and champagne coupes with all the girls' initials.
And I added Drink me labels to the water bottles.
Available here for printing.
I put stickers on the caps so people could differentiate their bottles.
I used Martha Stewart for Micheal's stickers to personalize the coupes.
The coupes were from the Dollar Tree.
Vanessa brought hummus, dips and crackers from Trader Joes to nibble on when we were getting ready.
Betsy brought yummy Pastries from Masse's Pastries in Berkley
And of course the fabulous Jen set up shop and gave us all party do's!
Happy birthday V!
I hope you had a great time celebrating!!
