So, a few of you were interested to hear how my Obama Inauguration Party went, answer = excellently!
I had a mismatched mix of guests but they all seemed to mesh... we sat around and watched history play out (well replay out), had a few drinks... overall - great fun, relaxed, basically Barockin'!
I recieved compliments on the decorations too!
Although, I felt as if I was running around the whole night, seeing guests in - out, getting more drinks etc - so I didn't get to chat to everyone too much. Is this the usual feeling as a hostess? (It was my first party).
What an amazing moment: beautifully accompanied by Beyonce. A phenomenal rendition of my favourite song; "At Last" - please take the time out to watch it.
But I guess when it boils down to it, I had my friends together to celebrate a fantastic historic occasion and it was so lovely.
Wasn't the President's speech (it's so wonderful to call him President!) fabulous? So strong and promising... I felt patriotic and I'm not even American! The U.S. deserved this after G.W. Stooooopid!
Am heading to bed now, 9 hours sleep in 48 hours = obamafatigue!
But what I really want to know is, how did you spend inauguration day?
