Today was a difficult day, but I'm proud of it.
Alpha Gamma Delta hosted it's Winter Wonderland Social: Winter in Narnia!
I'm Vice President of Scholarship and Social for Alpha Gamm, so I am in charge of everyone's grades and of all our parties. It was so exciting to be planning an official event! It was wonderful to be elected by my sisters who believed that I could do the job.
The event was a tremendous success, we were all complimented on our food and decorations. We even had a surprise visit by the owner of a newly opened Little Caesar's who brought us two free pizzas to munch on while we scrambled behind-the-scenes!
Cinnamon and Devil's Food Cupcakes
The snow waterfall was simply a blue sheer shower curtain.
We hand-made 100 of our snowflakes, and used 60 doilies and
64 shatter-proof ornaments for our atmospheric effect.
Cost-effecitve and stunning.
Instead of purchasing disposable dinnerware,
I dug through our Alpha Gamm heirlooms and
hauled out all of our mismatched glass teacups.
I borrowed the cupcake stand and used Alpha Gamm silver and glass platters.
I thought they would add to the snowy opulence of a Narnian Winter.
This wreath looked so cute and was very inexpensive!
These butterballs were handmade and delicious!
I got the help of my boyfriend's family who are masters of this recipe.
Powdered sugar makes everything yummier and prettier.
Hand made flags make simple animal crackers into Narnian Creatures!
Somtimes called "Puppy Chow" you can find the recipe for these naughty crunchies on the back of any Chex Mix box.

Who needs Turkish delight?
I wrote out silly food-related quotes from
The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe.
Pine cones, ribbon, glass beads, acorns and other nature bits
were showcased in glassware and silver.
Here is my most loyal and best friend, working hard and helping me prepare as always.
