English Garden Cocktail Party

Oh, hello there.  I've got royal wedding fever.  Do you?
Well, if you do, you totally should have been in DC last night for the English Garden Cocktail Party at Hitched Bridal Salon in Georgetown!  I was lucky enough to be invited, along with a guest (that's Summer hiding behind the Wills mask...hey, she's taller than me!), to the event last night, which celebrated all things wedding.  There was a presenter from Martha Stewart Weddings, a bunch of local vendors, tasty nibbles and great people watching.
When Summer and I got there, there was a lovely little French group playing "La Vie en Rose."  We listened while sipping lemon and honey vodka drinks and eating mini shepherd's pie.  Bliss.
This picture seriously does not do this wedding cake justice.  It was gorgeous!  Way too pretty to eat.
A glass of champagne to go with the festive mood? Don't mind if I do.
The girl on the left and the one in the bright pink dress are the owners of Hitched, which is the first place I went to try on wedding dresses.  Oh my goodness, they are so gracious and have impeccable taste.  They answered a question I had about picking bridesmaid dresses without thinking it sounded silly.  Maggie Austin, the baker in the black ruffly dress, made the beautiful wedding cake above.
The goodie bag!  As though the bag itself isn't cute enough, it was filled with wonderful gifts, including a Royal Wedding Survival Kit (scones, English breakfast tea, and jam), truffles (including a chocolate engagement ring!), and the cutest thing of all...
...this embroidered hankie!
This girl was very, very happy.  Thank you, ladies of Hitched, for such a lovely evening!
