You Are Cordially Invited to Champagne Sunday …

Good morning Dolls! Yesterday, one of my most fabulous girlfriend’s, Michele J., hosted Dolls for an afternoon luncheon at her beautiful home. Not that we needed a reason to get together, but we had much to celebrate – two new jobs, a wedding, a daughter’s wedding, election into an organization’s office. From her home, the meal, and gift bags, everything was perfectly appointed. 

Once we finished our meal, Doll Michele shared that she had a treat for us. And did she! Champagne Popsicles! When I say they were everything! Words cannot describe! When I arrived home last night, I immediately texted to asked her for the recipe and could I share for Champagne Sunday! Of course she said yes. Peep the mixology below for Champagne Popsicles!
