Graduation Party

Things have been pretty sparse around here (understatement!) & I owe you an apology! I hadn't realized how hectic prepping for my graduation party would be, and between that, work, & cramming sewing in, I never got a chance to show you the rest of the Sailor Girl dress! It's coming, I promise.

In the meantime, let me show you what I mean when I say I've been busy! These are the only photos I have from my party, I was too busy talking with people to take any afterward. Most of the desserts couldn't be made in advance, so we spent Thursday & Friday working hard on the treats (and my mom also made the delicious pork & rolls for sandwiches!) for the party at 3:30 on Friday.

Buttercream-chocolate cupcakes, meringue chocolate-dipped cupcakes, chocolate truffle tarts, lime custards, blueberry cheesecakes, and macarons. There were also berry-chocolate mousse chocolate boxes, white chocolate mousse in chocolate cups, and home made frozen desserts: raspberry lime sorbet, mint chip ice cream, strawberry gelato, and vanilla gelato.

It was delicious. :)
