Party Prep

This weekend was all about Mary.  The rooftop party in New York on Friday was just a warm-up to Saturday night’s garden party at Michelle and John’s house.

We arrived early in the afternoon to help set up —  because Mary is our dear friend, and because we consider ourselves part of her family… but mostly because I love setting up a party.

I got to make quick and colorful flower arrangements.

I had fun cutting big hydrangea blossoms from Michelle’s garden and arranging them with colorful store-bought Gerbera daisies.

John and I brought strings of lights and hung them to create a party atmosphere.
