My Best Friend's Engagement Party // Pumpkin Patch Goodness


 {follow me via instagram for first looks of all this fun!}
  
This weekend was a big one, particularly Sunday. 

I hosted a small engagement party for my best friend Lindsay with our closest girlfriends, her mom, and my stepmom. On the menu was anything brunch related and mimosa's galore, as you can see. I might be biased, but that's my kinda party. We had egg quiche, egg muffins that were Pinterest inspired {recipe coming tomorrow!}, fruit cups, pecan rolls {the word heavenly doesn't do these justice}, and of course-the cutest ring cookies I have ever seen for dessert. Have you ever seen cookies look so cute before? I told my girlfriend Rachel, who made them, that she needs to start doing cookies as a side job. She does such an amazing job! I set up orange and raspberry juices with some fruit for the mimosa's, a little mimosa bar you could say. 

Everything turned out wonderful and it was so nice to be able to celebrate her with those that love her most. Congratulations Lindsay, hope you loved it! :)

*I got the "I Do" pillow from Hobby Lobby

The pictures aren't over yet.

Later that day, it was time to give our local pumpkin patch a visit. This pumpkin patch is known for their amazing specialty caramel apples and pumpkin donuts {these deserve to be bold}, so naturally Billy got a donut and I got my favorite m&m caramel apple. 

Oh, and I got a cider slushie because well, why would you not get a cider slushie? They were all just too good to be true....

this might be my favorite picture I've ever taken...haha
"mmm...donut fingazz"


It's safe to say we had a good weekend.

How about you?

  1. That is a pinteresty engagement party if I ever did see one. And that exact thought crossed my mind about the apple. Give me your camera (and the apple) now and I will not steal Rocky from you.

  26. I wish I was better at party throwing...but I guess I would first need someone to throw a party for....
    ps- I am still awaiting your trim/base board painting tips. Did I mention half of our house is dark wood and the other is white wood...le sigh. That's what we get for buying an older home.
