PRETTY PINK PARTY

Last night a condo friend hosted a pink party.  It started out to be a celebration of when she got her neck brace off (hiking accident and fractured her neck).  As usual, life got in the way (and other parties) so then we thought it would be an October event and we would raise some $$ for breast cancer.  Life again got in the way.  So it was Friday evening.

Annie always brings a plastic wine glass with a pink flamingo base ... which is why I thought it fun to do a pink party.  And we decided on ladies only.  For some reason, yesterday, a lot of people just wanted to stay home.  Including me.  But I have the insurance rider indemnifying the HOA against alcohol related damage, so I did need to go.

It was great fun!  Almost everyone wore pink and our favorite party girl really outdid herself.  We have a fun loving group!




I think there were ten of us, off and on.  Great snacks (home made wild mushroom pirogues, salmon spread, delectable little warm sandwiches, ravioli with lobster sauce and lots of the usual items) and lots of PINK drinks (mine was champagne).

We all agreed that despite our hesitance, we were glad we joined in.  Our young Board member popped in after she got her babies to bed.  She talked us into having a costume party for Halloween!

  1. Adult Halloween parties are all the rage around here. You'll have a great time. Pink parties sound fun and something you can do over and over again.

  3. You are totally changing my impression of condo living. These parties look like such fun, and such a short walk away for lucky condo dwellers. Denim and Dessert - bring it on!

    1. We used to have neighborhood dinner parties when we had the house. Sometimes progressive, sometimes potluck. Especially fun when iced in. And my next door neighbor is a chef!!

    1. We never heard of any of these "themes" ... we just pull them out of our hats. Annie always has that pink flamingo glass. We both have hot pink Crocs. And there you go! A party!

  5. This sounds like a lot of fun. The ones who stayed home missed all that good food. A Halloween party could be a hoot. If you do it, take pics and let us know what you decide to be.

    1. We will definitely take more pictures. Mr. Ralph was always the photographer so I am going to have to REMEMBER to do it!
