Alice in Wonderland

Recently, my friend Ashley and I put together an Alice in Wonderland themed dinner party for our supper club.  It was originally planned to be outdoors at Arrington Vineyards, but due to what they are now calling the "thousand year flood" in Nashville, our party was moved indoors - to my place.  A successful party should be great, regardless of location, right?  Well...that's what we kept telling ourselves as the rain kept coming...and kept on coming.

So, we made due.  We turned off all the lights, lit candles everywhere, played the new Alice in Wonderland soundtrack in the background (which is so great by the way!) and enjoyed every delicious morsel of food. Ashley rocked the tea sandwiches, gazpacho and hors d'oeuvres. I made all the sweets. The combination of all of the above was a perfect compliment to each other and we sat around the table talking, laughing, enjoying a glass of wine and listening to the rain pour down outside.

Frilly Milly Events

Those that know me know that I love to throw a party...and usually my inspiration for a party is based on an invitation I've been dying to create! Recently I decided to start sharing my love of parties, invitations and "themes" by creating an event planning company. Thus began Frilly Milly Events. I haven't come up with a tagline yet...would LOVE to hear your suggestions! If you've got a baby shower, bridal shower, birthday party, or small event coming up that you need help with, whether in decoration, menu or paper goods (invitations, placecards, menus, etc.), I would love to help! Shoot me an email at!
