Girls Night in Martini Party

Its that time of year again... my 3rd annual Girls Night in Martini Party. Its a lot of fun, a way for all of us girlfriends to get together during the holidays (all of our other halves also join up at a local establishment - ha!) I ask all the girls to bring a wrapped martini glass to exchange and a small bottle of flavored vodka to make the martinis, and then i provide all the garnishments and make the food for the party. Thank you to all of my friends who came and made this year a HUGE success.

The food table
Baked Brie with Apples and Pears
Cookie Exchange Cookies

We do a Chinese Gift Exchange - where everyone picks a number, and then you pick your wrapped martini glass, or "steal" someone elses martini glass that has already been opened. And it engages everyone who comes to the party... the tree on the food table had paper ornaments on it and that is how the girls picked their numbers this year for the drawing.

Where all the drinks were made

Molly and her HUGE glass from my grandma, including a note that said "call me if you need a ride home - Nan" - ha!
Meghan with her first ever key lime martini, in her fancy glass that Jaci made
All of the toledo girls

Jaci and I
Jess and Amanda
