Sexy Houston twins throw a "wish list" birthday party at swanky jewelry store, but it's not what you think
It was bling, bling and more bling when twins Hannah McNair and Joanna Marks celebrated their birthday at IW Marks Jewelers (as in Joanna and Brad Marks) with their annual "Wish List Party." But the list wasn't for the birthday girls, it was for their guests.
Amid a frothy holiday-style celebration, the ladies were invited to survey the sparklies and make a wish list of their favorite baubles and bling. The "I've gotta have this" notes are kept on file at the jewelry emporium for the ladies' significant others to ease the challenge of finding just the right gift. Tempting pieces were found not only in the vitrines but also in the trunk shows provided by Ugo Cala, Visconti, Midas Diamonds and Suzanne Kalan.
The event also had a charity component as IW Marks contributed a custom bracelet and earrings, designed by Hannah McNair. The pieces were raffled off with Jamie's Hope as beneficiary.
Eight of the 14 super glam Hartland siblings joined the party along with mom, Joan Hartland — Bethany Hartland, Amber Hartland, Rebekah Hartland, Monica Blaisdell, Sarah Hartland and Adele Hartland.
When not shopping the ladies grooved to the tunes of a solo saxophonist, romped through the photo booth with holiday props to keep the spirits high and noshed on a birthday cake from Tony's.
Helping the birthday girls blow out the candles were Amy Haymond, Lynne Hudson, Kathleen Jennings, Alex Ochoa, Samantha Kennedy, Jamie Gilmore, Erika Graham, Cynthia Browning, Amanda Weeks and Amanda Abiassi.
