The FUN Trifecta

Oh who could not love a Wine and Cupcake happy hour? I, for one, am a sucker for these events and try my hardest to get the girls together to indulge! House Wine and The Cupcake Bar host these great little parties, with a pairing of mini cupcakes and wine. Here is an example of the fun we had Wednesday:

Shopping from Local Boutiques such as Izzy and Ash, Soigne Boutique, Emotional Baggage, Anne Marie, Diamonds & Guns, Jessica's Traveling Boutique and Amelia Beth

Beauty Presentations at 5:30 and 6:30pm from Andrea Claire

The best part, besides the cheese plate and cupcakes and wine, had to be the door prizes! Every 30 minutes some lucky gal (or guy) got a fabulous gift. To my disbelief, I actually won something.

AmeliaBeth makes these gorgeous rings, pendants and cufflinks from Scrabble Pieces. You can browse her jewelry on her Etsy site linked to her name above.

Of course I could not leave without purchasing something from Diamonds and Guns by Action Jackson.

I loved every piece, and thanks to the wine that had loosened up my wallet, I picked this darling locket necklace.

Ok, let's move on to the fabulous cupcakes, wine and cheese plate. Words aren't needed here - just mouth-watering pictures.

You can stop drooling now and make sure you fan The Cupcake Bar on Facebook for the next event.

Funny, I was going to write very nearly the exact same thing as Dana! Great minds think alike!

Thanks ladies! I've been dreaming of that cheese plate too. Anytime either of you want to partake in devouring it, let me know!
