Pre Party Fun

Saturday I went to Lisa Kettell's home to have an Art Opera Pre-Party. I met some wonderful women and we helped a little on some name badges and other goodies. Lisa had a nice lunch and a goodie table set up for us. Everywhere you turned there was a cute "Lisa" touch. She made these incredible red velvet cupcakes that I was so not going to eat but did! Diana made us all these pretty doll head charms and had a friend make this doll cake. No one wanted to chop dolly up, so I think Lisa is going to find a way to preserve her..no kidding! My head is still running with excitement from the party got to see sneak peaks and ideas for Art Opera and I just can't wait. There are wonderful teachers and different class options you can take 1,2,3 or 4 classes. It is in Red Bank NJ which has wonderful Antique Shops and lots of entertainment and places to eat. I had a fun time and doing the 1 month count down.
