My dear friend Anne-Murray came in from Birmingham for the party. I couldn't have pulled it off without her help!

As usual, this looks so elegant and like so much fun. Is there anything better than gal-pals?

So was your new neighbor Laura Bush there? LOL LOL

One thing I always loved about coming over to your house were all the fresh flowers you had around! They always made me smile! Looks like you had a wonderful time.

Your house and your parties look divine. Our own chaos is less elegant. I must make notes!

WOW...what a treat! Your guests are so lucky! Where on earth did you find the dessert dishes? You must have a ton to feed that whole gang. I just love your luncheon idea. We are having another couple over tonight which I am looking forward to. Might have to pull off the luncheon next year.

Can't wait to hear more...

You always have such wonderful parties!

btw - thanks for your comment about Rough Creek Lodge - I've never been there before. You know- Fossil rim is so close to Ft. Worth, yet a million miles away. great place to drive through one day. you should do it with Dots and some friends, they would love it!!!!! Not sure that it would be good for Vivian though - the animals might scare her! seriously, they scared me to death.
