Kayla and Marshall's Engagement Party

 We had a great time celebrating Kayla and Marshall's engagement on Saturday night.

Kayla is the oldest of my three stepchildren.  In case you are new around here, thought I would clarify.

We are so excited for the lovely couple and so happy they found each other!

Enjoy the pics...sorry if there are too much...will interject info as I remember...highly recommend all of our vendors if you are local!

On Friday night, Chuck, our Chef and Caterer came by to start prepping his dishes...he is a pro... a love...and just such a talent...We LOVE Chuck!


Our Menu: Tenderloin Crostinis with Chimichurri Sauce, Buffalo Chicken Meatballs, Sticky Bourbon Chicken, Beef Sliders, Lobster Sliders, Shrimp Cocktail (one of Kayla's faves), Chicken and Beef Taco Purses, A Charcuterie Board made by my talented stepdaughter Ally and Clam Chowder made by me (because it is Kayla's favorite)


There was lots of running around to do on Saturday- Flowers, Cake, Balloons, Oh My! ;)


The cake was made by my favorite Cake Lady Kat and it was a Gluten Free Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting- I am so sad I never got to try it but it looked beautiful- ha!


My mom also made Kayla's Favorite- Russian Tea Cakes or some call them Snow Ball Cookies and Cass made delicious Pumpkin Cookies :)


The flowers were made by Seemia of A and A Floral in Windham- she did a great job of getting Kayla's colors in there with a real bridal look :)


I had the most fun printing out pics and putting them in these gold glitter frames around the house

We bought a portable bar on Amazon and so glad we did- it came in very handy!  Chuck's team included a bartender, Dominque, who is also a love!  We did a signature cocktail for the bride and a signature cocktail for the groom- their faves


The lovely couple arrives...
