Allaina’s Surprise 18th Birthday/Graduation Party

2 Feb

This past weekend, we had a great surprise party for my sister, Allaina. About 50 family and friends gathered to celebrate her 18th birthday and early graduation, which called for lots and lots of cupcakes. The colors were pink, white and silver – convenient that Valentines day is right around the corner!

The dessert table was full – I spent most of the day Saturday sneakily baking about 100 cupcakes, and one “alternative” cake – Ally is into her healthy eating, so I figured I’d make a cake with secret ingredients that she wouldn’t have to feel guilty eating.

I’ll be posting the recipes for the cupcakes & cake soon – here’s a sneak preview!

I tried to set up a Smilebooth… Jon & I were the only people that took pictures.

    Great pics! I just don’t think we told anyone what the computer was for! If we had lots more would have taken pics.
