nyc engagement party.

before i headed off on my adventure, i had some celebrating to do.
my bestest friend is getting hitched next year and as the maid of honor, i wanted to do something special for her and her hubby to be.
the two met at university of kentucky so i decided to throw a kentucky themed engagement dinner.
blue and white, bowties, bourbon, and all kentucky cuisine!

{paper straws from etsy and apothecary jars c/o american bridal, a great spot for wedding favors!} 
{flowers and candy filled mint juliep cups.  uk color jelly bellies filled apothecary jars}
{i bought vintage bow ties and used them to decorate the bottles at the bar}

{chef matteo and his bourbon glazed sliders. unreal.}
{hush puppies in cupcake holders} 
{what's a kentucky party without fried chicken?}
{mandatory engagement-ring-stuck-in-a-hot-brown pic.  i think?}
{the beautiful couple!}
my friend matteo, a private chef in nyc, whipped up the most amazing food for us.
the kentucky kiddos said his hot browns were the best they've ever had!
he was so helpful coming up with menu ideas while staying within my budget.
if you are looking for a caterer in the nyc area, make sure to contact matteo.
thank you to my friends at american bridal for providing the adorable apothecary jars.
all six pounds of jelly bellies fit nicely!
and a big shout out to the incredibly talented taylor who was a breeze to work with in creating the personalized artwork/invitations for the party.  the girl has talent.
everything came together and the party twas a success!
until next time, nyc.
