Yesterday was quite possibly one of the most lovely parties I have ever had the pleasure to have hosted. Jb and I invited our best buds over to celebrate our engagement, and boy did they come through! Not only did lots of people show up, but we now have literally piles of flowers, wine, champagne and various other alcoholic beverages filling our apartment - not to mention the amazing mishmash of beautiful and hilarious gifts. And to top it all off, our hangovers have been quelled by delicious leftovers and gorgeous peonies surrounding our kitchen table. A better way to celebrate a lifetime commitment I cannot imagine! As you can probably tell, I'm still a little giddy.
My lovely friend Rose works at a flower shop (I know, it was destiny) and she brought us a HUGE bunch of these incredible peonies. I couldn't stop bragging about them all night long. Arranging them was like something out of a dream.

It is truly a privilege to be able to host gathering like this. Every time I do, I realize how much I love witnessing different friends I've met along the way interacting with one another under. Watching people who I've known in various separate contexts meet, talk and laugh together has to be one of my favorite past times ever.
Hope your weekends have been glorious as well!
