“Stock My Bar” Party was a success

Back in Sept when I moved into this apt.  I decided not to have an apt warming party right away, I told my friend Ja that I wanted to wait for spring.  So that I would have some time to get the place together.  I told her how I wanted to find & refurbish a BAR.  Which I did you can see that here.  I came up with the idea that if I found & refurbished a BAR then the apt warming would be a “STOCK MY BAR” party, where instead of housewarming gifts you/people would bring a bottle for the bar GENIUS RIGHT!!

I like to think so…. I mean take a look for your self at the results…


Is it alot of work to throw a party?
Sure, but oh did we have a good time…..

Here’s a look at how I rearrange the apt for a party
Coffee table got moved from living room to sun room “BAR central” check out that sitting bench in the background that’s an upcoming post (stay tuned lol)
In the living room I turned the sofa around to face my bedroom/sunroom
Here is some of the sprucing up I did around the house for the party…{future post, stencil wall,(POSTED 6/20) tv cabinet & coffeetable 2 sitting bench}

I moved the bar cart into the living room 😉
so there were no lines at the main bar ja ha ha

I had my daughter & her best friend(coincidentally another Jamie so now i got 2 of them) go out at 8.30 am on day of party and pick (steal) me some flowers from the neighbors I think they added the finishing touch to the place.  Don’t you agree
Cocktail table is out now you know its a party lol
I found an awesome recipe for Rum punch last week in blogland (credits go to the NY Melrose family click^) cause it was a huge huge success

Here’s my awesome niece (my Guinea pig) testing the first batch
She just got back from a vaca in Mexico hence the awesome awesome tan….
First round of shots Strawberry creme liquor {thanks Ja}
And it was all down hill from there…. lol
I had appetizers in sun room by the big bar & deserts in the living room by the bar cart

I dont know who {it might have been me}
kept screaming SHOTS SHOTS SHOTS LOL

I think a good time was had by all you can definitively see it in the last pic below someone should take our camera away lol

Big thanks: to all my friends who came awesome awesome time epic… Luff u all
