I am feeling so torn between ecstatic and forlorn. My coworker (who is coincidentally one of my best and greatest friends), The Supermodel, is moving to New York. Why you ask? Well this beautiful all star is heading to work in Tiffany's corporate office. I am just pleased as punch for her, but I am so sad to be losing her in Charlotte. She is truly one of the sweetest and most fun people on the planet... not to mention one of the most stylish. To celebrate her incredibly exciting news, I held a surprise going away party for her on Saturday night with the theme Champagne & Cupcakes. I was thrilled with how the fete turned out, and I believe that Miss Supermodel was truly shocked. If any of you Manhattanites have some tips for her, please send them my way, or if you're willing to help out a displaced Southerner, let me know, and I'll get you two connected!
The spread included:
- Paula Deen's avocado chicken salad (divine) with mini pitas
- Honey teriyaki meatballs
- Buffalo chicken dip
- Corn and black bean dip
- Delicious cupcakes from SAS Cupcakes (in Blakeney, for you locals)
- And an assortment of bubbly (including my new favorite, almond-flavored champagne from Trader Joe's for a whopping $6 a bottle)
In between food and dessert prep I was able to whip up a fun skirt out of some nearly-forgotten-about fabric I scored at Mood way back in October when I was on my trip with The Supermodel. Although it's furniture fabric, I think I kept it from looking too sofa-y.
