Paint Party!!

Today, Bebe, my neighbor, threw me one of the most amazing bridal showers/parties! We had a paint party!!!

Everyone who came to the shower got to decorate a holiday plate, which would be given to me as a gift. How cool is that?! Let me tell you...I wasn't too sure how everyone would feel about hanging out and painting a plate, but let me tell you, we had a BLAST!!!!

Bebe spent soooo much time getting everything ready for today. First, she had to go and buy 20 platters and prime them so we could paint on them. Then she spent much time looking up ideas for each holiday online so she could sketch an outline on every plate. Adam and I now have so many beautiful plates to display throughout the year!!! Bebe also sketched AND colored a sample of each plate so every "artist" would know what to do. Talk about being prepared! All that work and I haven't even mentioned all the food!! We had a veggie tray, chex mix, chips and dip, grapes on skewers, and more...and a DELICIOUS cake with a little palette. Too cute!!

We all had so much fun and really got into painting. I am so glad I got to spend time with friends I love and that I now have a truly special gift from each of them.

Here are some of the amazing pictures from today:
