Nearest & Dearest With a Few Guests of Honor

As I mentioned in my post yesterday, I totally went MIA on everyone for the past couple of weeks as I have been planning for a Christmas soiree (aka Jingle Bell Mingle) to be held at my home this past Saturday night with my nearest and dearest friends!

I have for years and years dreamed of the day when I would live in the most beautiful home (preferably on the intercoastal waterway in South Florida) and host lavish parties for every occasion imaginable.  Well, reality finally hit around the first week of November when I realized I was less than two months away from turning 31 and even though  I am not married, nor have I relocated to that glamorous home in SoBe that HELLO, life is quickly passing me by and I needed to stop putting my dreams off...and I mean ALL of my dreams!

So, I called my amazing "mama" and told her of my ah-ha moment and being the rockstar that she is, she said..."Assistant Mama reporting for duty" haha OK, maybe not in so many words but, she knew as well as I did I would be blowing up her phone nightly to brainstorm and plan!

Whether I like to admit it or not, I am a complete control freak and everything has to be "Tiff's way".  From decor, to the food (reminder: sign above my stove says "i kiss better than i cook"), to the festive holiday cocktails, I wanted to handle every aspect.  I wanted nothing more than my incredible friends, who might as well be family to have a night where they could come over, enjoy, relax, and not have to lift a finger!
I've never claimed to be Martha Stewart BUT, for my first solo event, I have to say the party was a success.  My very best friend since kindergarten, Rebecca Ballard-Boggs was kind enough to snap a few shots before the night kicked off.

Since my home would not accommodate a sit down dinner for 20 plus I decided that the true guests of honor could take a seat at the table ;)
Rudolph, Dancer, Vixen, and Prancer were all in attendance!  

Stay tuned for pics of my wild and crazy friends!
