Election Night Party Ideas

Tomorrow is election night! As fun as it can be to go out and watch the results, I find it to be even better to host a small gathering in the comfort of your own home.  We all know that sometimes election night can turn into an all night event.  So, if you have not made plans already, invite a few people over for a last minute party.  Here are some easy and stress free ideas that will make your election night epic!

Birthday Brunch!

It is that time of the year again! Tomorrow is my birthday and I am super excited about it this year.  I am turning 25, so I consider this to be somewhat of a milestone birthday. I feel like since I will unofficially be entering adulthood (scary) I must celebrate such a grand moment! Oh, did I mention that my birthday is on a Saturday!?!? That’s the most important part!  As you all know, this only happens every so often, and the last time I had a Saturday birthday was when I was turning 20.  Oh my, how things have changed between then and now haha.  However, I say all of this to say, it is only right to have a mimosa filled birthday brunch when your birthday falls on a Saturday! That is exactly what I will be doing tomorrow and I hope this post inspires you to do the same the next time your birthday falls on a Saturday 😉

Summer Wine Tasting Soirée

August will be here in a couple days and after that, summer is over *tear*  Before summer is a thing of the past and fall quickly approaches, there are plenty of parties to attend and host.  One of my favorite summer parties that my mom and I host every year  is a wine tasting party.  We invite all of our close family and friends for an intimate backyard gathering filled with delicious appetizers, great conversation, and plenty of wine of course!  Here are some ideas that we’ve used over the years that you can incorporate into your very own wine tasting party!
