Pre-Party Cheer

Friday is my Mom's 75th Birthday in addition to New Year's Eve. No Party per her instructions, just family. Oh well, I have arranged a surprise brunch with her girlfriends in the living room around the tree. I have swapped out the red for Pink. Every room is filled with peonies (her fav, I can't believe I found them in December!) and pink and white roses and super fragrant greens....
What did she request? Lots of Pink, Lots of Champagne. Coconut cake. I love my Mom and I will have the best cake and champagne for her and her best girlfriends with breakfast Friday.

I love this pic, it's the mood of the room now, lots of crystal and light and the red is gone, replaced with pink. We entertain here nightly. Oh so many more pics to show, soon.


  1. Make sure to get some Pink Champagne!

  2. Hi Andrea, What a sweet surprise for your mom. I hope she has a very Happy Birthday!
