Card making party

My sister and I had a little girly get-together this weekend. We invited several friends over, scoured pinterest for recipes (and came up with some real winners!), and even had party favors. We spent Saturday getting ready for the party, and then enjoying our friends' company and making cards.

Unfortunately, I was too busy having fun to take pictures during the party, but I do have some prep shots to share with you, as well as links to the recipes we used.

Our menu

Links to recipes (except sangria, corn chowder and caramels):
Veggie tartlets with pesto sauce
Roasted squash and red pepper quesadillas
Ginger cider bourbon (we tweaked the measurements to: 1.5 parts ginger ale: 1 part cider: .5 part bourbon
Maple Apple Tartlets

Maple Apple Tartlets

The apple tartlets were the only food I got a finished shot of. They were delicious and easy to make!

I mentioned party favors, too. Jill and I went a little overboard, but we had a lot of fun with it.

Party favors

Jill got little Yankee candles and some homemade jam from etsy for everyone, as well as sharing some scrapbook paper and adhesive. We also shared little rolls of washi tape, purchased here on etsy.

FO(s): Party Favor Cozies

I made coffee cozies, using Jeni's tutorial. I loved making these, and I actually have a few left over to gift next month.

Here's mine!

So, that's the party recap. I made some sweet cards (including one with a robot!).

I hope you had a fun weekend, too!

  13. That all sounds like so much fun! I wish we lived closer to each other - the Chicago-Houston commute is a bit long for parties.

  14. I'm with Rue...I wish we lived closer. This party sounds like so much fun and I was a tad bit jealous reading about it! La Grande is quite small and while I do have a couple knitting buddies that get together once a week, I long for a crafty group like this.

    Your coffee cozies...I love them!
