I love collaborating on parties. It’s so much more fun to put together an event with friends. Here are a few images from a recent winter party celebrating my husband’s running group. This crazy group of men gets up every Sunday at 6am to run 10 miles … in the hills!

We chose a fun color theme to combat all the grey skies we’ve been having. Paperless Post always has an invitation to start my inspiration. And I found this amazing green fabric from Dwell Studio to use as a table runner. The floral arrangements were in mercury glass compotes and included green cabbages, red tulips and clementines for the orange.

We’ve started a collection of vintage etched water glasses, but I didn’t have quite enough for 40 people! So I treated myself to a few of these glasses from Williams Sonoma to fill in.

It felt so good to pull out all the good china and use it! And here are the final tables:
