A Toast + End of Summer Shrimp Boil

Welcome to Hosting & Toasting!

This blog has been a long time in the making and I am beyond excited to get started!

I hope to share with you some of my favorite things to do, to wear, to craft, to purchase and to celebrate. From fashion finds to how-to’s on DIY crafts and dinner parties, you will find it all here on H&T. Oh yes and I’m Brittney, or Brittney Ann or let’s just make it easy — BAC; a nickname I acquired from my friends due to my fond love of monogramming.

Up first, a recap of my “End of Summer Shrimp Boil” that I hosted for a few close girlfriends.

With the first day of the fall season not until Sunday, we’re technically still transitioning so this serves as one last toast to summer!
