A Blues Party!

This past weekend, we celebrated my birthday and Matt’s birthday. Mine was on the 14th and Matt’s was the same day as the party, the 16th! We settled on blue as the theme and ran with it! I have to say, it was a fabulous! From the clothes we wore, to the drinks, to the rock candy – all shades of blue. We decided to have it at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver. We had our party there last year and it was such a hit, we decided to go for it again. The museum has an incredible rooftop café and that’s where the party took place. The food was incredible and the cake was sweet! We ate our rock candy, had good conversation, posed with our photo props and made the best of memories! My amazingly talented friend, Lauren from Pearls Poppies Pinkies Up was so wonderful and captured so many special moments. She even did a mini photo session after the party for our Christmas cards and did a little feature on her blog today! So, without further adieu, enjoy our Blues Party!

And that friends was our Blues Party. Our annual parties mean the world to me – to be able to bring together all of our closest friends from different areas of our lives, treat them to a party that gives them an experience and opportunity to explore something they might not otherwise, like the MCA. On our birthdays, we like to love on our friends, spoil them a bit and let them know how thankful we are to have them in our lives. Good friends are hard to come by and best friends, even harder, but I tell ya – we were surrounded by some of the best Saturday afternoon. I hope they had as good of a time as we did. We made memories that will last and genuinely had the best of times. So thank you friends for taking time out of your day to celebrate with us and for letting us treat you to a little bit of blues and fun!

Happy Monday, Friends!

Celebrate Good Times, What to Wear

Little Blue Birthday Dress

Blues Party Dress | Chic to Chic Blog | www.chictochicblog.wordpress.com

If you follow me on Pinterest, you may have been annoyed by my blast of blue dresses. So sorry for that, but I assure you it was for a fantastic purpose. It’s official, this year’s birthday party theme is a Blues Party. It’s a “Blue Out”! Blue dresses, ties, decor, cake and music. We’re going all out, ya’ll! If you know me, you know I have this crazy love for event planning. My poor husband still doesn’t understand why I can’t just do dinner for our birthdays, which are two days apart. You see, I love to celebrate, every. little. thing. But my favorite thing by far to celebrate is my birthday. It’s not about celebrating me or the fact that I’m a year older, it’s about making a big to-do, getting all of our closest friends together, dressing up and making memories. I love spoiling my friends and this is a way to do just that! In my mind, that’s a full fledged party complete with invitations matching the theme, a special dress for the event and of course a custom cake. So, this is the first, but probably not last, little post you’ll be seeing between now and mid-November. Today I finalized the space and  now I’m set to pick out the dress! So, on to the LBBD (Little Blue Birthday Dress). This indecisive gal, has about fifty or more dresses on her list, but I’ve somehow managed to narrow them down to four. Now, I’d love opinions! Some background – it’s an afternoon, cocktail styled party at the Museum of Contemporary Art on their little rooftop. So, it could get a little chilly up there. My hair will probably be down and curled. So.. tell me what you think! I’d love to hear your thoughts – Classic, Lacey, Curvy or Flowy? What’s your fave?
