I hope you all had a fabulously Coquettish weekend! Here in the Bay Area we got a taste of Summer with the beautiful weather this past weekend. Ladies - it’s time to dig the bikini’s and sun dresses out of the closet!
Now it’s my turn to hold down the Coquette Events fort while Miss Andrea tours Europe with the Mister. We hope you’re having a great time and finding some Coquettish inspirations out there!
On the home front, I’ve been keeping busy with a variety of events. This weekend I hosted an early Fiesta for Father’s Day and the first Coquettish Bachelorette Party went off without a hitch. And, what I’m most excited about is the much anticipated Hello Kitty inspired Birthday Party! I cannot wait to see the look on the birthday girls face when she sees everything – hopefully, she’ll be as excited as we have been planning it. No spoilers here, but be sure to check back next week for a full recap.
In the meantime, I had to leave you with some tidbits …
