Celebrating With Richard

Tuesday, December 7th, 2010

Good Morning Darlings!

I hope your holiday party calendar is full this season. Mine certainly is. Party, Party, Party! Last week Eric and I went to a party here. Truly giggle inducing. It’s not everyday you get invited to a $10 million dollar house just to party. It is an evening we will not forget.

Another party I will hold dear in my Christmas memories this year is Richard’s Christmas party last Friday night. It was so much fun! Yummy appetizers, delightful beverages and some of the coolest people. It was a swell time.

The perfect time for my red hat!

We exchanged stories, sang and filled up on tasty fare that my sweet friend Richard slaved over all day long.  Marvelous bruschetta, mini quiches and all sorts of treats.  There were friends I already knew (Patricia, Jay, Barry and Kathy), along with brand new friends, Ricardo, Michael, Jamie, Kris, Sonny, Alexis and Bria – all super fabulous.

Sharing a hug with Kathy and Barry.

Not only is Richard an insanely talented photographer and stylist, but an incredible host as well.  We had so much fun and were so tickled to be invited.

And aren’t friends the best gift of all? Priceless.

A very happy and stylish group of friends!

xoxo, Patti
