Toast to Tess!

My not-so-baby sister turned 19 yesterday, and to celebrate I hosted a small soiree at my place. Bright and cheerful was the theme, with shades of turquoise and pops of white throughout the coach house. Vintage tea cups (from Tess' own collection!), paper straws, lace-inspired trays and mason jars all added to the feminine feel. A Peach Bellini was the perfect light-bevy for this now legal gal (see recipe below), and luckily for me (the spoiled non-chef), my lovely parental units and aunts made yummy apps. It was a fun night Toasting to Tess--a girl whose beauty shines bright inside and out! XX photo 3-2

Bellini directions: I basically made this up as I went along, but essentially I blended frozen peach concentrate, Peach Schnapps, ice (to make it slushy) and peach juice. I then added a bottle of peach flavoured Prosecco, and topped it off with a bag of frozen peaches and more juice to water it down. It was a sweet hit!
