Marie Antoinette party!

Saturday turned out to be the most wonderful day.

a lovely table

We ate hors doeuvres

We wore pretty dresses and played with fans.

We ate dinner as evening fell.

Then came dessert even though we were full to bursting.

We laughed and relaxed

evening closes in

and let the night close in around us.

I'll be blogging more pictures as the week goes on since I have links and tutorials to share. If you can't wait, click through to my flickr page to check them out.

Special thanks go out to Karrie for letting us use her beautiful house and yard and for spending the entire day helping me get everything ready. And thanks to Debbie for coming by early to set up and for bringing the table linens. And thanks to Laura, the bride herself, for bringing the macarons. It was all quite a production!
