It was a small party – just a couple gals, a couple gays and a baby who was trying to eat a miniature apple as only a baby could – failing adorably. And that’s Ginny’s arm, she didn’t make it into the shots but her wrist is really carrying the whole scene.

And we apparently handed each other food a lot – because its the season of giving so sometimes you just give pass sandwiches back and forth a few times. Thanks to Scott, Orlando, Corbett and Ginny for coming. I had leftover cheese for days. While many of the items I use are vintage, here’s how you, too, can get the look! Friends and baby not included.
