Houston’s stylish elite will flock together in for this 1960’s pool party chic-inspired event where, surrounded by pastels and glittery gold accents, a big, inflatable flamingo, swan and donut, (all of which you can find at shopthemanor.com ::wink::), will serve as lifeguards in the pool. While guests sip signature cocktails from Dripping Springs Vodka, fresh lime margaritas from Slimritas, and get tipsy on alcoholic ice cream from the Tipsy Dessert Bar (do you see a theme forming?

So I procrastinated the Valentine thing this year. Big time. Which is why I am madly in love with Danyelle at Dandee Designs at this moment. Because of her free Love Bug Printable, I threw these bad boys together in 10 minutes last night, and I now appear to be a Pinterest goddess. What did we do before Pinterest, seriously?
