This is the set-up my cousin in created for the party to celebrate her older daughter's passing her bar exam. My cousin's taste is exquisite as usual. I wish she were here to help us plan the events of this week.



  1. Exquisite is the word! Congratulations to your cousin's daughter! (Does that make her your second cousin?)

  2. Ms. Moon, yes, the newly minted lawyer is my second cousin once removed (I think). But in our family we simply refer to the children of some of our cousins as nieces and nephews, because those particular cousins feel so much like siblings! It's the gift of growing up in a small place; we were thrown together so much. now we are all scattered. i sometimes miss the closeness and chaos of the family gatherings of my childhood. of course, they were not all quite so grandly staged as this!

    i cherish your friendship so much. Love to you.

  3. Wow, that is pretty! Love the sophisticated yet cozy lighting. Congrats to your niece :)
