...Night of Chocolate...

Every two years my mom, sisters, and I host a "Girls' Night Out" for my aunts and cousins on my mom's side of the family. It is one of my all-time favorite traditions! So this year, we decided on a chocolate theme and it turned out so cute and was so much fun! How can you go wrong with women and chocolate right? As you can see, we had plenty of chocolate treats and even pampered ourselves with chocolate face masks. Everyone left with a can of chocolate bath salts, a chocolate candle, and cookies. Such a fun night...loved it all!

These were our invitations...inside the box were the party details and a couple of chocolate candy bars.

The Chandelier decor turned out cute I thought, we found these glass vase-thingies at Tai Pan for $2.50 and filled them with different brown & red candies.

Place settings...so cheap...we just used different pieces of scrapbook paper. Then we slipped their name into a Hershey's Nugget.

This turned out so cute....our Ding Dong Cake!

So maybe I'm nerdy, but yes, this is me & Emerson dressed in Brown for the occasion.

Every chocolate-lover's dream...we had sooo many goodies! I don't know about you, but I just don't think you can ever have too much chocolate...seriously!

My all-time favorite: Monster Milkies...from the Sweets Factory in Salt Lake.

My cousin Tiff (in the picture) has a son, Trent DuVal who was just diagnosed with Lukemia...so we spent some time making dolls for Primary Children's Hospital. Tiff has been so strong through all of this, we'll keep hoping for the best!

So it might look scary, but we had fun with our chocolate face masks....yummmy!

That's the jist of it...very fun ladies! Can't wait for our next one in 2009! :)
