The best laid plans part deux

The party’s over…

It was a day late, but twice as fun. I donned a tiara, a sash — Miss Cellany, cause I do love a good play on words — and jewels courtesy of the woman of the hour.

The setting was beautifully adorned and the speeches hilarious and heartfelt.

I am so tired I may have to leave it at that.

The best laid plans

It was the 50th birthday party that didn’t happen.

Well, not as planned.

I flew to Cincinnati today to attend a surprise party for my best friend from college.  Her family had gone all out, and she was totally in the dark.

Then the weather dumped its own surprise on us — ice and snow that made the roads too dangerous.

So we had to reschedule the party for Saturday and let her in on it.

Poop.

A smaller group of us ended up at her next door neighbors house tonight for an impromptu dinner, which was loads of fun…so really, she is getting TWO parties.

Surprise!!

Heads up

I have discovered the perfect holiday party accoutrement:

Reindeer antlers

While eating dinner last night at Post in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood, my friend Suzanne and I took note of two private parties underway in the upstairs dining room.

The first party was seated at a large table in the back, the diners serenely enjoying their meals created by Chef Eric.

The second party was awaiting their table near the second level bar, and the gentlemen were all wearing reindeer antlers.

Who was having more fun?  Take a guess.

So to all of you party planners out there currently contemplating your menus, libations, and decorations, make your list.  Check it twice.

Wouldn’t holiday head gear for your guests be NICE??
