We met together in this beautiful, quaint venue last evening,

Our purpose was to celebrate a new online magazine,  "Neighborlies".

Candlelight created ambience greeted everyone who walked in the door.

"Vintage" was visibly the theme of the evening.  The one in charge of the decorating, has the uncanny ability of taking old in many forms, putting it all together, and having it come out as cozy, warm, and so inviting.

Favors done with lace, jute, and old tags, were offered to everyone.  Inside...small wrapped chocolates.

The mantel was done with glassware and candles from cupboards, closet, and consigment shops.
The banner was made with old lace ties.

The talented lady who was in charge of decorating for the evening.  I am not sure how this busy mother of a baby and three other young children does it.  I did notice her mother and sisters rallying with her throughout the evening. 

My oldest daughter, who just happens to be the one who founded the idea for this particular online magazine.  I must admit, I was proud of the endeavor that her and others produced.

Included in those attending the evening were some special mother/daughter teams I know personally.

Mother, daughter,and granddaughter treasure an evening spent together.

A special visit paid by an out-of-state mother, to celebrate the evening with her daughter(and baby to be).

My sister-in-law and her two lovely daughters.
 Me and my dear daughter.

Tiny, perfect looking, delicious tasting cupcakes were baked and decorated by another busy, young mother. 

A local professional bakery baked and decorated the cake for the introduction of Neighborlies.
It was a beautiful evening of combined efforts and talents coming together to launch a dream.
I wish them well!

This looks like it was a great evening. I really dont know how your daughter finds the time for all of this with her busy must be very proud of her and all the other lovely ladies that are working with her. I have already signed up for this on line mag and was just reading earlier about all the contributors. I also wish them well and know that God will be glorified through their wtitings.

What a fun event. I was especially delighted to see "vintage" associated with it, because that's my newest self-descriptor :)

I truly wish them well too! That sounds like a great "care group"! Love the glass and lace decor for this evening's debut. I hope to be peeking into that window.
