Pinterest Party

Lately, I’ve had this growing urge to throw an all-out, all-encompassing “Pinterest Party.” Now, perhaps this means I spend entirely too much time on social media (can I excuse this as work-related?), but I’d prefer to view the situation as a way of accepting a big ol’ dose of reality. The bleak truth is that I’ll probably never get around to cooking that Chez Panisse Eggplant and Caramelized Onion Pasta recipe, and I’ll most likely stare at the Good Morning Yoga sequence until I’m hobbling down the street, crouched over a walker.

Don’t get me wrong–I love Pinterest. I think it’s a brilliant social media outlet that has completely altered the creative industry (I’m fairly certain my 2,930* pins and 888* likes can attest to that). My problem lies solely in my own laziness.

With that said, I’m now more-than-determined to host a little shindig made entirely of Pinterest-inspired foods, drinks, activities, and decor. It’s time to give those “What’s Cookin'” and “Secrets of the Hostess” boards a little workout, am I right? Since my small intern budget doesn’t exactly allow for a surplus of purchases, here’s what I would cook up, bake, and create if I were to throw this party today. Who said imaginary tea parties die when you age?
