As Promised...

Happy Wednesday...

As promised I took some time last night to upload my photos from Mallory's open house. I enjoyed being at home for the party so much and I am so glad that the photos turned out.

We LOVE Lilly...Mallory and I before her guests arrived.

The BF, Mallory and I...

The gift table before guests arrived. Please notice the blue and white candies- GO CATS

The BF gifted Mallory a super nice UK gift basket that was full of UK goodies. All of the party guests were very impressed and several people commented on how great of an idea that the UK basket was. The BF did a wonderful job and Mallory was very surprised and thought it was GREAT! 

ALL ABOUT MALLORY... Photo easel in the entryway. 

The spread... YUMMY

The centerpiece of the table...RED VELVET (egg-free) CUPCAKES...

I wish I had brought some back to LEX.

**SIDE NOTE.** 
Please note the attention to detail on the cupcakes. My dear Aunt Juli spent several hours perfecting these cupcakes. The cupcakes are frosted with cream cheese frosting (also egg free- Mallory is highly allergic to eggs so finding a baking recipe sans the eggs is difficult) and they are topped with a chocolate malt ball (which is meant to be the head of the graduate). Of course every graduate has to have a cap (the graham cracker shown above) and what is a cap without a tassel (the sour airhead straws), and then to top it off a UK BLUE mini "M" (for Mallory...just don't tell the makers of M&Ms). The cupcakes were a huge hit and I wish that I had snagged a few to bring home. So thoughtful and Mallory was so proud of them...

Key Lime fruit tarts... FANTASTIC

Friends...

The BF and I...

Overall it was a wonderful weekend and I am sad that it went so quickly. It was a weekend of great food, friends, and family. 

So many pictures...so little blog space!
LOVE, MKH
