Reporting live from my boyfriends cozy apartment in Queens, New York! Snowstorm Juno just made her appearance causing all of NYC to work from home today. Music to our ears, I tell ya! Not only am I thrilled to shack up with my boyfriend, eat snacks and watch seasons of New Girl on Netflix, I get to use this day as an excuse to write my second blog post! It is a good day today, thank you mother nature.
Lets dive right in, shall we? So this past weekend called upon a few very significant Birthday milestones. A few weeks back my friend Stephanie asked me to collaborate for an upcoming event. Stephanie and I went to college together at LIM - a Fashion Merchandising school in NYC catered to the business savvy student. Like myself, Stephanie is currently expanding her day-to-day by working on her passion project, aka an Event Planning business. We will later discuss what a passion project is, my best friend Janine has made sure to share this idea with me and I just love using this term whenever I can.
Nevertheless, the event was for a themed Sweet 16 Birthday - what 16 year old girl wants a party without a theme?! No one, thats who! The theme was a royal blue and pink explosion of diamonds and crystals and bows, OH MY! At first, I was skeptical - I have never been the girl to like bright colors together, especially pink or even diamonds for that matter. I know, who am I and what did I do with my femininity? But, to my surprise, I had a BLAST making all these colorful treats and even fell in love with the way the light pink complemented the rich royal blues. It made me want a Sweet 16 all over again. I made sugar cookies in the shape of diamonds and the number "16" and very sweet cotton candy cupcakes topped with edible cotton candy flavored sugar diamonds. These goodies were add-ons to an abundant candy station that looked like the perfect backdrop for a super sweet, Sweet 16! I do not have step by step photos of the goodies I made but I assure you they are super easy to throw together. Check out the Cotton Candy cupcake recipe below :)
