Pretty Party






One of my very best friends, the one and only Amy P, got engaged on a recent trip to Mexico with her awesome guy, Stephen! Hooray! It only seemed right to throw her a special little engagement party, complete with pretty-bottled champagne, mini chocolate ganache cupcakes and salted black licorice, Amy's fave.

Aren't those little royal icing flowers so cute? They prettify absolutely anything. You could put them on a meatball and serve them at a tea party, that's how cute those little flowers are!!

Congratulations Burgertime!

natalie, no salted licorice in the cupcakes-- just in a little fancy bowl to snack out of!

hi jeanee, the stand is actually white, but the contrast of the photo makes the stand look a bit grey. i LOVE grey myself! i would love a grey stand... !!
