Dinner with the ladies!!

Last night a few of my girlfriends and I got together to host a dinner party in honor of our friend Missy who is getting married in one week! There were a few of us that were unable to go to Cabo for her bachelorette party but we still wanted to do something special for her so we thought a dinner party the weekend before the big day would be a great excuse to get the ladies together and give Missy a night out to be pampered before wedding madness begins!

I was also really excited because I held the dinner party at the new place and it was fun to have the girls over to see it for the first time! I decorated in her wedding colors which are red, black and white and since my friends are much better cooks than I will ever be they were in charge of the food. Dana who is an amazing cook and is that person that can look in a cabinet and make a meal with whatever is around made steak, pasta, and green beans for dinner...thank you Dana for having the domestic goddess gene in cooking that I severely lack .. ;)

We had a great time and even caught up with her future hubby for a little while after dinner ;)

It was nice to do something small and intimate for the first party here because next up will be the big party for Mr. Jones' big 3-0 birthday in a few weeks..yikes..

Found that little sign at Target and thought it went well with the wedding theme ... ;)

Table set in her wedding colors...

Dana the chef...she looks cute in my kitchen.. maybe I should invite her over to cook more often..

Apps and wine thanks to Rach and Jules in the living room...

The beautiful bride to be and myself...

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

XOXO- Miss. V
