Home Tour and Cocktail Party

  Last weekend was a busy one ( as they all seem to be lately), My Junior League hosted a cocktail party and a Home Tour on Mt. Washington ( a neighborhood in Pittsburgh).  I was the chair of the home tour, so the last two weeks I have been slammed trying to get everything ready and doing the final walk through of all the homes. 

  The cocktail party was at the Le Mont on Mt. Washington on Friday night and was a kick off for the home tour the following day.  If you are local to Pittsburgh you know how gorgeous the views of the city are from the Le Mont.  The restaurant is all glass windows and looks over the entire city, I can never get sick of that view.

   The party was a hit, we were lucky enough to get some great raffle prizes donated for the party, and guests enjoyed passed hors d' oeuvres, drinks,  music and we even had a masseuse.  

I am so lucky that so many of my good friends came to support me.
All of these pictures have major red eye that I was not able to edit.

Saturday I got up bright and early to set up for the home tour.  We had ten fabulous homes on the tour that were also so unique.  I really think ticket holders enjoyed being able to tour the variety of homes on Mt. Washington.  Unfortunately, it rained all day, but we still had a decent turn out.  It was a ton of work but I am so happy I had the opportunity to put together a fundraiser from scratch.

Saturday night DFH's parents were in town so we tried Cibo a new Italian restaurant that just opened in the Regent Square neighborhood.  I had the lobster ravioli, and finished it in about three minutes.  I would definitely recommend this restaurant.   The rest of the weekend was spent being lazy watching too much HGTV, which was just what I needed after a busy Friday and Saturday. 

On Monday, my co-chair and I were lucky enough to be featured in our local Pittsburgh newspaper. 


  1. Pretty dress! And how fun to be in the paper. Looks like a great night.

  2. Cheers to a successful event! Looks like it was a lot of fun. I've considered joining Junior Leagues, but I don't know much about it. How do you even go about finding one in your area? I'm from Connecticut, so I'm assuming there must be one near by. Is it basically like a sorority for the real world? (eek, I have no idea what it is so I apologize if I sound ignorant at all). I should probably go do some research...
