Housewarming!

A whole lotta paint, a bunch of new doors, a few miles of new trim, and a couple of rolls of wallpaper later and I finally opened up my home to my fabulous friends for my first condo party!

I picked the purpley wallpaper (with matching silvery grey paint)…linens and bedframe will complete the bedroom.

So happy to see so many friends come out to celebrate.  Of course I was hyper-focused on getting good food here for everyone.  Priorities!

My first amazing Charelli’s cheese platter…

Drool.

I think I had 5 bites of food all night.  Um, and 5 glasses of wine.

We all sipped our Brut from red plastic beer cups because we are classy that way.  (oh right, and I don’t have a dishwasher and wasn’t interested in 15 real glasses!)

As requested by many friends, I saved the Coconut M&M’s I received from my American friends to share at the party.  Coconut lovers unite!

There was a lot of red wine going around.  Wait until you see the housewarming gift haul.  My friends think I drink a lot apparently.

Nice.  Three of them are standing there texting.  Apparently we aren’t interesting enough for them.  ;)

Mr. Stoopy made himself well known.  Entertainment for all.

In the midst of the conversation, door buzzers, and knocks on the door I tried to give a little speech…. It amounted to me standing on a chair and saying “hello” and “thanks”.  Here’s hoping my guests were all mind readers and knew I was trying to say “I’m so happy to be home, and even happier to see you all”!

What a whirlwind!  I don’t think I completed a conversation the whole night. Can we have way-fun parties like this every weekend?  Please!

Looks like fun! And I agree with Jessica--that last picture of you is really pretty.

I love, love, love that wallpaper! Is it just on one wall? You make me want to make my bedroom look more...like a "boudoir!" ;o) It is terribly boring at the moment. Hmmm...

Thanks everyone!

Yes, just the headboard wall. The rest of the room is painted a soft taupey grey to match the leaves. :)
