You're Invited to the White Party



Hi, everyone! Welcome back from the weekend!

Hope you are rested, relaxed and ready to take on another week.

Last week my friend T who writes the wonderful blog Desperately Seeking Seersucker came up with this brilliant idea to have an all-white blog party!

BWS tips button


Her inspiration was the white party that she hosts at her home to celebrate the last weekend of the summer that you can wear white! Pretty fun, right? Well, not only are there going to be gorgeous posts popping up all day, there's also a giveaway to go with it! T, you're just too much!

So, gang, without further ado, welcome to BeB's White Party!

~~~~~~~~~

1. I want to start this party by getting your juices flowing with some beautiful photos....







2. You must decide what you're going to wear!

Juicy Couture

Anthropologie

 Guess

Anthropologie

Lilly Pulitzer

3. There will certainly be dancing, you can bet on it!




4.We could dine at this gorgeous origami-inspired table courtesy of Green Wedding Shoes!





5. Of course if this party is hosted by me we're going to be sipping my favorite little concoction!


Classic Mojito

Ingredients
Ice
6 ounces light rum
12 mint sprigs, or spearmint, 8 roughly broken apart
6 tablespoons fresh lime juice
4 tablespoons sugar
Club soda
4 slices lime
  
Directions
Place ice in beverage shaker then add in the rum, 8 broken up mint sprigs, lime juice and sugar. 
Shake well and serve over ice in a high ball glass. 
Top off each glass with a splash of club soda.
Garnish each with a slice of lime and a sprig of mint.

6. Maybe we could do a little DIY session? Look at this fantastic necklace I found at P.S.- I Made This!


7. My guests would definitely go home with a yummy bag of caramel corn. I found these great pictures and recipe from Emily at Cupcakes and Cashmere.




8. Here's a little send off for the day! Hope you enjoyed the party and are inspired to host your own!

What a fun idea for a party! I'm certainly white inspired after looking at your lovely collection of photos! I'll forever be in love with Carrie's HH dress!

LOVE YOUR WHITE PARTY! I'll be there .. let's see what should I wear? I love the chanel belt in one of your photos combined with the strands of pearls and ribbon bracelet ... that's a start! Your blog is fab, new girlfriend. Love it! It's so funny that you're doing a white party and on today's Ooh La Frou Frou Collection blog post I did Sunny's retro swimsuit post (she's a California girl, after all) because it's just a way of holding onto summer a little longer .. just like you! ;)
