I think I've always enjoyed "playing with make-up" from getting into my mothers lipstick as a little girl - and now as a not so little girl. So a Friday night Mary Kay party with the girls was a lot of fun for me. Thought I would post this on "Pink Saturday" (if I can still link this late - husband needed the computer today) Most of us know the pink of Mary Kay cosmetics - so I set my table with pink gerber daisies and accessories.
Here's a look from the other side of the table. Pink tablecloth, black and white polka dotted ribbons, framed black and white paper, cake plate with pink shred and flowers in my grandmother's antique white pitcher, surrounded by white bunnies, a sitting angel with birds and a pink teacup with a bird's nest, and a small nest as well. I also tucked a few flowers into some tea light holders and tucked them here and there.
A cute little bunny is guarding a crystal basket filled with black and white napkins.
Have a strawberry cupcake bite. I took this picture before the party started. I hadn't set the rest of the food out yet, but you do see a box of crackers waiting to be put out.
I had a little trouble getting pictures of the food because I didn't put it out until after our presentation and "playing" in the make-up. So these pictures were after we had fixed some of the plates. This is my "signature" shrimp cheese ball.
Strawberries and powdered sugar.
A "raspberry sorbet" cheese ball topped with fresh raspberries and served with graham crackers.
This was a plate of cantaloupe wrapped in ham. Do you see a pink food theme? We also served pink lemonaide, mango margaritas and blush wine.
This is a picture of our happy Mary Kay consultant my daughter Katy, this was her consultant training party. We had lots of fun and we all looked beautiful at the end of the evening! Well, I didn't make it for Pink Saturday this week - but we had a fun pink friday night!
