So many things pair well together in life…wine & cheese, chocolate and wine, cookies and milk or beer and a burger…. I could go on and on. When thinking about this couple in specific; two close friends to myself and my husband, I figured what better way to celebrate their upcoming wedding than to give them a shower with two things they love in addition to each other – cupcakes and cocktails.
I designed the invitation with a color scheme very popular this spring, and it actually turned out it was very close to the couple’s wedding color as well. ( I hope the bride didn’t mind!). The cocktails were designed by our friend Ryan who played bartender for the evening, and the cupcakes came from Molly’s and also from my kitchen and my co-host for the evening, Emily.
Emily made a Guinness Stout Cupcake and I made my famous Strawberry Margarita cupcakes. Must I say not only do I love these cupcakes, but the recipe that I discovered on Pinterest is from a blog title homemadebyholman. SO close to my name it was just meant to be. I’ve made the cupcakes twice and both time they were amazing and delicious.
Here are some pictures of the decor. Emily did an amazing sign on the burlap letter signs above our cupcake display!
