Good Morning Darlings!

You all know how much I love an awards show. The Oscars are like Christmas to me, so the Emmys must be Thanksgiving! Yippee! And you know I have to have some fabu cocktails to quaff while hollering at the television – don’t fib, you know you do it, too. This year besties John & Holly will be on the red couch with me, critiquing the gowns and hairstyles, so it has got to be good.

My friend, Kate, from NYC, sent me the most delicious ideas. Kate, you think of everything!

What are Kate and I mixing up for Emmy Night?

As I’m sure you do, I like to peruse the web for party ideas. I mean, the WHOLE world is out there and it is so exciting to read blogs and websites that are packed full of the exact things I love. Zombies, party tips, etiquette problems to resolve.
