Party Details.

I wanted to share some more shots from the party. I love little details when it comes to events oh-so-much, so I figured I could do some basic ones. Using random frames I had around the apartment I made little signs for each item using Ali Edwards‘s free, download-able font. My bigger project was making favors for everyone in the form of “Muffins That Taste Like Donuts” (with a little “thank you” message attached). I can’t recommend this recipe highly enough…Adam and I (mostly “I”) have been eating the leftovers very happily. Mmm. And—though I typically HATE mayo—this wasabi dip involving it is also a new favorite. Once I knew Katherine, Natalie, and Sarah were coming I just had to get some cupcakes from Milwaukee Cupcake Company for the party—it was so fun trying different varieties while being reminded of our yummy outings to Cakes on Walnut. Adam and I also provided guests with many local beers (these also had a sign…don’t you worry! Although pancakes in the morning did not have a sign, for which I was, of course, teased). It was really my first time playing “hostess” for such a big event, especially one involving food, and I think it kinda rocked…very much due to the people who attended (and Adam’s delectable sliders)!

Thank you so much for your kind comments regarding my outfit and our apartment! Made me smile! Hoping to have Adam take more “apartment” shots very soon.
