Witches Brew 2013

I felt well enough to host a Witches Brew again this year. It's such a fun party that I had to do it again. I took things a day at a time and scheduled myself small so I could get it all done. I also accepted help this year - yes, VT-ing was done while frosting cookies. The party was definitely worth the effort!

I had amazing friends and family all come out. I feel so blessed to be surrounded by such brilliant, supportive, fun, and truly remarkable women! It was the year of the tiny hats and was much more about fun than prizes. But I did like my steampunk Jack outfit this year. The ladies who came were: my adorable Mom, Summer, Heather, Melissa Nicole, Alex, my Mother in Law, Andrea and her mom Gayla, Jen, Karyn, Krista, Steph, Danyelle, Deb, and me.
The menu was nearly the same as last time except that I purchased the Kale salad from Costco, had cookies (homemade oreos and shortbread) for dessert, and I made a new drink with tiny ice cubes of cranberry juice in Sprite. I loved how the drink turned out looking even more like blood in the goblets. Oh, and I gave everyone straws this year so they didn't have to touch the blood.
The decor was super fun and Eliza adored helping me decorate. The eyeball Salt and Pepper Shakers along with Jack were my favorite additions.
Oh I love this party! Definitely doing it again next year no matter the state of my health.  And, of course we had to do a family brew with the family and leftovers.
