We threw an all-girls brunch party for my BFF Karena's birthday.
It was held at her house (which I live in too).
We cleaned up the backyard a couple of weeks ago and hustled some more cleaning the day before.
The house looked fabulous!
Karena did all the cooking and I did the flowers.
Our friend Jade, who does a catering business had her own station
to make poached eggs or grill breads, etc.
Karena, being the perfect host, prepared a favor for everyone to bring home.
It was sort of like a surprise giveaway.
All the guests were asked to grab this small jar with marbles in it and
go outside for further instruction by Jade.
After Jade poured heavy cream and pinch of salt in it, guests were asked to shake the jar.
And after vigorous shaking.... tada!!
It becomes butter!! Cool, isn't it?
All the decorations and favor was Karena's idea/creation.
It was supposed to be an early summer pool party... but it was SUPER windy that day.
So nobody went into a pool. Just a few people in the jacuzzi.
But we played a foodie game, and with 15 girls all boozing and chatting it up, we had a blast!
Happy birthday, Karena!
