Celebrating at Farm Kitchen

This month I celebrated my birthday at one of my favorite places known as Farm Kitchen. Farm Kitchen is a beautiful venue that’s popular for weddings and other special events like the sips and appetizers party my husband and I attended.

We tasted some delicious appetizers such as:

Roasted Red Pepper Soup, Goat Cheese Rolls, & Hummus with Pomegranate

Mini Shrimp Cocktail, Peppered Beef Tenderloin,
& Filo Tartlets with Chicken
The drink is an Herbed White Sangria and it was Fantastic!

For dessert we had Apple Dumplings, Cranberry Shortbread Cookies w/Chocolate Ganache, & a Cornmeal Currant Cookie

Aside from tasting all the delicious food the best part was learning how to put the dishes together and being sent home with all the recipes.

I have more parties to share with you, but for now I hope you and your family have a wonderful and Happy Thanksgiving!

Blog Love and Amazing Pancakes!

Today I was following up with some of my favorite blogs and I came across a post on WhipperBerry’s blog about Jim’s Pancakes. His pancakes are works of art and I love that it all started because he wanted to make some cool pancakes for his daughter.

And here I was all impressed with myself for making these Star Wars pancakes for my husband a few weekends ago.

Be sure to check out Jim’s blog here

Also, check out the stunning dessert table that WhipperBerry put together for Michelle from MaddyCakes Muse.

I just love the shot glasses and the use of the chandelier on the table. It has inspired me to get creative with a wire chandelier I have that is collecting dust.

Fancy Nancy Soiree!

Ooh La La it was a Fancy Soirée for a special little girl’s birthday!

The girls had fun decorating their wands with jewels and glitter stickers. The boys added some pizzazz to their tops hats.

Afterwards we played a game of memory, bean bag toss, and guess the Fancy item. This game was a hit even the boys had fun guessing.

I wish I had more photos to share, but as always it was a whirlwind of fun to be had.

Now it’s on to the next party. I’m excited to be working with a lady bug theme with a fancy twist!
