I’m sipping red wine. Cab Sauv to be exact. Secret, I don’t drink red wine. Insert comment: Never deny red wine during a wine tasting though. I have this phobia of my teeth becoming stained…I know, I know. I’ll stop.
Last week I traveled to Denver, CO. I’m sure of it that without question I left my heart there. The place was stunning. Everything I wanted to do and see, happened. I was completely in awe at how nice the people were. The laid back lifestyle is exactly what I am all about. Did I mention that it is basically the beer capitol of the USA? You could say I tasted my fair share of local as well as non local beers. How could I not? My liver just loves me, I know.
LITERALLY THE MOST PERFECT TRIP.
I must tell you I was beyond excited for my trip to Denver except I had to get one major thing out of the way first the day before leaving. I spent all week working on an event for a precious little girl. Celebrating a first birthday is a milestone in my book. Granted as a one year old you really have NO idea what is happening, it’s more of a party for the adults in attendance. The gramps and grams that get to pinch your cheeks and admire how cute you are while you just look at them like they are beyond crazy. I mean I think that is what happens. It’s what I observe at least.
When asked to do this event, I immediately said YES. When I was told it was a peacock theme, I got even more excited. The ideas began spinning in my lil’ blonde haired head.
On the menu was a Pink Champagne Cake with Raspberry Buttercream Filling. Nutella filled Chocolate Cupcakes. Oreo Ball Bites.
And thus I created what I thought was a super elegant, fun and adorable first birthday party treat.
Traveling + Cupcakes. Two of my most favorite things in life. OH and now Voodoo Doughnuts…
