Happy New Year, everyone!
Thought I’d share some pics of the NYE Smorgasbord Pre-Funk last night before the Three Crowns Gala at the Swedish Club. In case you missed it, here was my round-up of inspiration pictures.
I had the day off, so I was able to putz around all day and decorate. I put together some signage, made stir sticks, and tinseled everything. It was really fun to get to finally use some of the platters we received as wedding presents… but there was one casualty in the dish-washing process :(. Here some set-up shots:
It wouldn’t be a party post without pictures of the bar! Normally, we are more beer/wine folk, however we have a fully stocked bar right now thanks to some Christmas presents from work vendors.
We had eight friends over, though some of them managed to dodge the camera. Say hi!
After some light imbibing and bites, it was off to the Three Crown Ball to watch fireworks at the Space Needle, and rock out to some ABBA –
They even had a Swedish pancake breakfast at 12:15 a.m. to cap the evening off.
And that’s a wrap!
It’s been a year of major milestones, both good and bad, giving me the sense that 2014 is bound to be less stressful than 2013. In the coming days, I’ll share some of the organization ideas I’m hoping will jump-start a less stressful lifestyle. But we are off to Lake Chelan this weekend, so I’m putting off re-entering the real world just a bit longer :).
