THIS happened last week! A private cooking class/ dinner party with these fabulous ladies! A perfect girls night out. I invited these ladies over with the gals from Lunchpailsandlipstick and together we had a ball. A most delicious ball! These talented ladies are the brains and success behind Ascot Friday (Laura also does Target Does It Again and Ascot & Hart), Saint Eve Jewelry, Nena and Co., Lunch Pails and Lipstick, Rachel Thurston Photography and Morgan Smith from Bugaboo. Goodness these ladies are beautiful, over the top creative, talented, incredibly sweet and fun to be around! Be sure to check out their websites, blogs, and or instagrams! (@lunchpailsandlipstick, @ascotfriday, @st_eve_jewelry, @nenaandco, @rachelthurston_, @morgansmith, and of course me…. @jennyevansgatherings) Go to the lunch pails and lipstick blog for the recipe to the Lemon Blueberry Pudding Cakes that was the perfect, light finish to our feast. Here are some pictures of the menu we made and enjoyed as well some more of our fun night!

This is a glimpse of my new hobby besides cooking. By force actually! I am learning but need to improve a lot!
