My sister and I are incredibly close, we're partners in crime, roomies and best friends. Last week she moved to Portland. I had to send her off in style so I threw a little going away bash for her and couldn't resist the opportunity to mock the Portland clichés with a Portlandia themed party. Everyone had to wear plaid.
Beard banner and a woodland centerpiece. I served Shepherd's Pie and made cupcakes with birds on top.
Put a bird on it!
Bicycle stamps on the plates.
The cocktail recipe and mis-matched vintage glasses for Portland Punch.
Guests wore beards, they ate, drank and made merry and then they beat the crap our of a pinata (not very Portland but fun all the same).
Thanks to Amy for helping me with all the crafts and for taking these photos.
