The party was great. The space is warm but industrial, and the staff was super attentive to our private party!
But firstâ€¦ DINNER!
The four of us â€“ Nicole + Isaac and the Husband and me â€“ went to a place called 300 East, which is situated in a refurbished old house. I love the vibe.
The table ordered the falafel appetizer to share. The carrot salad on top of the fried chickpea ball was amazing!
The Butternut Squash Pizza caught my eyeâ€¦ I couldnâ€™t get anyone to split it with me so I just ordered my own personal pizza. 🙂
Everyone was super jealous, obviously. I shared two slides and gobbled up the rest!
The waitress brought Nicole a little ice cream and brownie.
We told Nicole that we were going to the bar to continue the celebration, but we were really headed to her surprise partyâ€¦.
She seemed really excited when she walked in. Everyone was there â€“ about 30 bloggers, friends, and family members.
For Nicoleâ€™s birthday, I gave her this sweet cat masquerade mask, since she loves cats. :) Pretty, huh?
Our party included a wine and chocolate tasting. I really love the attitude of the staff at Petite Phillipe. They know a LOT about wine but arenâ€™t snobby about it. Our flight of wine included 1 champagne and 3 reds (Nicoleâ€™s favorite).
Our flight included:
- Antech Emoticon (Sparkling)
- Rocco by Willamette (Pinot Noir)
- Qupe by Santa Maria (Syrah)
- Terra Valentine by Spring Mountain (Cab blend)
I loved them all, but the Pinot was my favorite.
The chocolate was to DIE for â€“ all handcrafted in the store!
Flavors included gingerbread, blood orange, and dark chocolate. Mmm!
All in all, a very unique party at a very unique space! I hope Nicole had lots of fun!
I hate to blog and bolt, but we have coaches training at Girls on the Run today! I need coffee, STAT!
