If ever there was a perfect ending to a near perfect weekend, the Barn House Party was it~ From the fact that they thought of Every. Single. Tiny. Detail. to the incredible food, to the darling venue, not to mention the best company a girl could ask for~
I realized when doing this post that for the most part, I am a people photographer. I just read darling Tara's post and she has the most divine photos of the party itself. You really need to head over there and I promise you, you will feel like you were there!
We were greeted with these fabulous snow cone cups of peanuts, as well as souvenir books that had been made from the fronts and backs of old books. We used them throughout the night to sign each other's with our names and contact information. It was almost like we were back in high school, or summer camp perhaps, and the notes got a bit silly (but at least I know who to "call for a good time"...).
(I will be attempting to spread the barn house boys photos apart so that it doesn't appear that I have a crush on them. Because I don't. That is not the reason I took so many photos of them. I certainly do not. Have a crush on them that is...)
I clearly dressed for the occasion - complete with large, floral head piece. I bought this at the show from Cindy, and although anyone who knows me knows I would never buy something like this, I absolutely loved it! You really can't get more girly than this and lord knows I am forever attempting to find my inner "girly"...
When we arrived, there was a band playing, which just added to the festive energy in the air~
The venue itself - Chaps - was absolutely divine! If you are ever in Spokane, you really need to go. It not only has fabulous food, but the decor is so completely up my alley, and I could have spent a lot more time taking photos of it (were I not so anxious to get out there and spend time with such fabulous new friends!).
~why yes, the kitchen is indeed pink!
~Kasey found herself a mini-pink kitchen to play in~
~yes, this is a photo of a bathroom, but a cool bathroom, don't you think?
So we gathered outdoors, and spent time getting to know one another, enjoying our cocktails and some fabulous food~
~what are the odds if I post enough photos of Kasey in this necklace, she will tell me where she got it...?
the king was such a trooper surrounded by so many women...
And did I mention the desserts? There was a chocolate fountain with all sorts of goodies to dip into it, as well as s'mores around the campfire with the most delicious chocolates to choose from!
(how am I doing? splitting them up nicely, don't you think?)
The sun went down, but no one really wanted to leave...
Things got a bit silly...
And then it was time to say good-bye~
I will end with a photo of the Queen's shoes because really, what is a show without a photo of the Queens shoes...?
Until next year my friends~ I am already counting the days...
