Party Recap!

As promised, here is a recap of my 30th birthday party! The party really could not have gone better! In the morning, I headed over to my friend's house to begin the party preparations. We had lots of appetizers to prepare but I had lots of help - including the help of my friend's little boy, Elliot! Isn't he adorable?


Making the stuffing for the stuffed mushrooms!

The day went by so fast! Soon enough, it was 7:30 and the guests started to arrive! I'll let the pictures do the talking for the rest of this post!


My parents, brother, sister-in-law, and I

Posing with the fabulous hosts, Brooke & Amanda!


Food station #1 - roasted pecans! They are SO good (and very addicting!)

Food station #2 - Fromage, GF crackers, veggie tray!

The main food station - I totally forgot to take a picture before we started eating! Whoops!

All in all, it was a very successful party! I really could not have had a better time and it was the perfect way to celebrate my 30th!
