Dinner Parties & Goodbyes

We threw a little dinner party this week in honor of my bestie Amber who is moving to beautiful San Francisco. It was a nice change of pace to see our friends  on a weeknight, and cook for them too!


the spread

I made not one, but two different kinds of Mac 'N Cheese! My  famous Taco Mac 'n Cheese (recipe here) and a classic Baked Mac 'n Cheese (recipe here). My girly made bomb-pop martinis and we had some delish cupcakes too.

So with one bestie out in San Diego and one off to San Fran I have two reasons to plan a trip out west!

The stilleto ice cube is adorable! Don't you just adore intimate dinner parties with the people you really care about? I had a similar one this week!

I love going away parties esp with mac and cheese being served!

Exciting for your friend to move to SF. All of my in-laws are there and I imagine I will one day call it my home too.

PS - those stiletto ice cubes are perfect for a shower/bachelorette I am planning. where did you get the mold???
