About Our Group

The group consists of 12 girls, each paired with a partner. Each month a partnership will host a dinner, which entails formal invitations, decorations, menus, a multi-course dinner, party favors, etc. Each year we'll have six hosted dinners, a few potlucks, and then take the summer off. The dinners are a lot of work, but a lot of fun. Each partnership will host once a year, and usually have a few months to plan. There are no set themes – be as creative as you want. This gives each of us plenty of opportunities to not only try out new recipes, but to also share an evening with friends.

A Very Merry Un-Happy Birthday Party

January's Event:


It was so nice to get together with all the girls again, it has been months since all of us have been together since our first event in September.

Our hostesses for this month was Megan and Brooke, and they did an incredible job. The theme was 'A Very Merry Un-Happy Birthday Party' from Alice in Wonderland and on the invitation it said that we had to wear our Wonderland best. Everybody was dressed in frilly skirts, bright colored dresses and outfits fit for a tea party. Every little detail was thought of from the tea pots and cups to a beautiful pink color scheme. We all mentioned that if we were young again this would have been the best Tea Party birthday party.


The Invites:





The Main Event:

There were two rooms on where we could sit, Dining Room and Main Room.  It didn't matter where you sat because each room was decorated beautifully.
