I threw a travel themed party last weekend… being in Hong Kong we all travel so much so it was a fun theme to run with. Minted invites by Sheila Sunaryo.
I had a lot of fun looking up all these flags on the iPad while frosting away.
Besides Mitra’s sugar cookies, I also made Alexandra’s chocolate chip cookies (which rely on overnight refrigeration AND measuring each cookie on a scale… totally worth the extra trouble) and peanut butter cookies. I think the cookies were a huge hit judging on the fact that just a couple were left at 3:30am when the party finally wrapped up! The girls decided to descend upon them all at once in a giant wave… you know how girls like to travel in packs?
Sticking with the travel theme, I served up plane food: chicken and rice and fish and peas and carrots in little mini-airplane trays.
Besides the plane food, I did a bunch of other dishes from countries around the world PLUS homemade honey roasted peanuts.
I put old maps from the States (not much use for them here!) on the bar and on our front door to let guests know they were in the right place!
I ordered these map pendants on etsy.
