HDFB Weekend Recap: Engagement Party Edition

This past week has been another whirlwind of visitors in our house. Last weekend we had Andrew's sister and my two girlfriends form Iowa here for my birthday and wedding dress shopping. This week/weekend we had Andrew's parent's fly out from Connecticut to spend the week with us and celebrate our engagement with close friends and family in our new home! The party was nothing short of perfection in my eyes. Andrew's dad manned the grill and served up a few dozen handmade burgers, complete with a burger bar full of toppings.

Meanwhile, Andrew's mom and I made plenty of side dishes including macaroni salad, pigs in a blanket, and a large bowl of cowboy caviar. Dessert was not to be left behind either. We served up a large helping of french macarons from Kick Ass Kakes, and Andrew's mom whipped up a batch of homemade brownies, which I aptly names M.O.G. (mother of the groom) brownies.

We had a blast sipping on whiskey smash batch cocktails, playing bocce ball in the backyard, and dressing up for the photo booth. All while our friends and family all got to celebrate along with us. Perfect weather, perfect company, perfect life.

  1. This is adorable!! Glad you had a good party! I just want to put it out there that your hair looks like it belongs in a shampoo commercial. I want it. I'd buy that shampoo ;)

  2. How cute picture you have shared dear. All of you are looking too good in your group photo. I am also going to click group picture with my friends in my wedding at banquet halls in Miami. I am sure we will enjoy it.
