Champagne Ladies Dessert and Champagne Party

My parent's friends threw us a Dessert and Champagne Party while we were in Maryland and it was amazing!  It was held at my parent's best friends house in our neighborhood.  

Gorgeous right?

All of the ladies call themselves the Champagne Ladies!  And when one of their daughters get married, they get inducted to be a Champagne Lady.  Also when a girl marries into a Champagne Ladies' family, she gets inducted as well.  Really it's just a great group of friends who have been friends for SO long who happen to all enjoy champagne.  :)

Isn't the table stunning?



Smith Island Cake - Maryland's state cake!

White roses!



They said a toast to Kevin and I which was so very meaningful.  I hope to get a copy of it to frame!

They had made a slideshow of me growing up.  Some hilarious pictures in there!

Back to the toast pictures..

The lady in the blue jacket gave the toast.  She is very eloquent!

Kevin and I with the infamous Champagne Ladies!

I hate I'm blocking her head in this picture.  I should have ducked more!

And as part of being inducted, they give you a gorgeous champagne holder.  Isn't it amazing?  I need to get a better picture of it to show you all but it stayed in Maryland and didn't come home on the plane of course.  A neat story - one of the Champagne Ladies died of a heart attack last February and she had bought this and saved it for me to have.  Makes it even more special!  Her husband told me about it at the party.

Now for the formal pictures....Kevin and I with my parents!
