St. Patty Pretty!

"Been looking for that 'pot of gold'? Well you're in 'luck'- We found it!"...

...So began the invitation (from online party pros 'cocodot') to the St. Patrick's Day-themed dinner party that was held in an empty office space (did I say 'empty'?) on the top floor of a downtown office building.
Transforming the space into a dining room was a challenge, but we managed to create a dining room 'above the city',  much to the delight of the dinner guests!

 Greeting the guests with Irish bagpipe music and a champagne flute of our signature drink, 'Liquid Gold', when they exited the elevator, surprised them and started the party! So yummy!
 (You can get the drink recipe by just clicking on our Drink Page tab, above.)

 Keeping with the 'pot of gold' theme, the two-room office, high above the city, was carefully crafted into a 'solid gold' dining space using only gold linens, chargers, candles, accents, and even flatware...

Gold coins were used as a small detail on the table......

and even gold spotlights set the lighting-
Guests were served from the 'green' room...   
The dessert table held Irish mugs along with Bailey's Irish Cream, both just waiting for the hot coffee ...

...while rich buttercream cupcakes, topped with edible gold sugar crystals, were happy on top of a green mercury cake stand.
Other desserts included Key Lime bars, and small bowls of 'over-the-rainbow' sherbet, each topped with a stenciled shamrock cookie!  Delish!

I have to thank my assistant Lisa for all of her help in getting the party literally 'off the ground'!   

Also, the wonderful paper designs and photography by none other
than my sweet and talented design daughter, Madison Luikens, of madisoncaryphotography....
And finally.... What 'luck' to have such a great team, and how 'lucky' I am to celebrate my 'touch of Irish  heritage by sharing it with such FUN friends!

 (Yes, that is me on the right!)
