Party Details

A couple of weekends ago we hosted a BBQ to celebrate the hubs' graduation from grad school. We had such a great time, and despite my initial worries that our house wasn't in good enough shape yet to host people, it all went very smoothly. I wanted to share some of the fun moments from that day!

One of my favorite parts of our back porch!

"Congrats!" sign to satiate my love for crafting

Mexican chocolate cupcakes
Homemade veggie burgers! These are amazingly delicious.

No party for Latin American Studies graduates is complete without a mini sombrero.

Mint iced tea and striped straws
Tres leches cake from a nearby Mexican bakery-- OMG SO GOOD!
Since our cupcakes were such a hit, I need to share the recipe with all of you! I wish I could take credit for them, but I found them on Pinterest and followed the recipe that somebody had already created. They were very easy to make, and they weren't too spicy. I definitely want to make them again!

It was such a blast to hang out in the backyard, eat good food, and be with our friends. I foresee many more shindigs at our place in the near future. :)
