... and present they were:
I'm not really sure what they had to do with anything, but they certainly gave new meaning to "tablescape" design. All you need is a glorious sunset, near-perfect Miami temps, and naked silver peeps to set the mood!
We enjoyed the cocktails by Jose Cuervo and some of the appetizers that were being passed (by very regular looking people and not silver models). At one point (and you'll know this if you're following me on Twitter) we realized that they were all probably Sandra Lee recipes. One tasted like Digiorno pizza with some basil cut up on it. Another was cherry tomatoes with some bleu cheese stuffed into them. Another was something called raspberry chicken on a skewer. We weren't starving (thankfully) and indulged in more drinks than food.
Surprisingly, Sandy wasn't really drinking at all! She must control herself when she's on-call.
We got there a bit after it started, so I'm not sure if Sandra made any kind of grand entrance or announcement to the crowd. She was just posing for pictures with the crowd (very graciously, I must add) and handing out a few copies of her magazine. There was no music playing and the whole thing just seemed a bit of a downer, which is so shocking for Aunt Sandy! You'd think it would be wild and crazy! I mean, there were naked silver people standing right in front of us!
Still, she couldn't have been sweeter. It was an all right start for Sandra's first party at South Beach, but she's gonna need some pointers for next year (if there is one). I'm always available, Aunt Sandy!
PS- As one of my tweets pointed out, at one point they ran out of wine glasses AND white wine, so I ended up drinking red wine out of a plastic cup at the $100/ticket Sandra Lee party. Sounds about right!
