CHEERS to new experiences! Last month, I designed a cocktail party for Fisher-Price® that was hosted in a different sort of venue than I’m personally used to… right smack in the middle of their tradeshow booth.

As far as my typical weeknights go, last night pretty much took the {fresh-fruit-topped-boston-cream} cake. I invited a few girlfriends over for dinner as part of a collaboration with Pier 1.
