Christmas Came Early!

Well Christmas came early for me this year! On Wednesday evening I received an email from Jenni of A Well Crafted Party, letting me know that our TOP SECRET New Year’s Eve collaboration was up live on The Pizzazzerie! Needless to say I am going to be high-fiving a million angels for the rest of the week!

This collaboration was the product of a ton of hard work from many Portland Bloggers. A super huge THANK YOU to Macey‘s phenomenal photography skills, Jenni‘s gorgeous party decor and organizational skills, Kate‘s imagination and flair with food, Adi‘s generosity and talented decorating, and Kayla, Sarah, and Suzannah‘s modelesque performances!

Check out some pictures from the collaboration here!
