Brunch and Baubles
A few Saturdays ago I hosted a fun little party for my girlfriends. I love Stella & Dot jewelry, and my friends Sarah and Susan were sending me friendly reminders that it was my turn to host a party. So I connected with a stylist in my neighborhood and picked a date. It's pretty much that easy.
***Update: I'm now a Stella & Dot stylist! Feel free to reach out if you'd like to host a party of your own or purchase any of the great items you see on the website!***
Of course, you all know that I can't just do anything TOO easy. I made it a brunch event complete with mimosas and yummy food.
Our stylist, Hannah, showed up and set up all the beautiful jewelry in my dining room while I put finishing touches on the food.
Here's the spread!
Beef Pinwheels from BeefItsWhatsForDinner.com. I had leftover pot roast, so I just spiced it up with the instructions in the recipe instead of using ground beef. I also used the pepper jelly instead of the cream cheese frosting. They were a hit!
I also made my no-fail Cantaloupe Salad.
I added a really easy Yogurt Parfait Bar.
And then I had to finish it up with something sweet, so I made these Baked Nutella Doughnuts from CookingClassy.com.
Here are a few of the pieces I got from the party. I'm thrilled with them so far. (all images courtesy of Stella & Dot)
These earrings are perhaps the most genius things I've ever seen. They can be worn like you see below or you can remove one of the drops, so they're single drops, or you can remove all the drops and wear them as studs. SO VERSATILE!
