A couple of weeks ago, Ram and I realized time was really flying - we had almost been in our new place for two months! So we figured it was time to do something we'd been talking about for ages... throw a housewarming party! I whipped up an invitation and sent it out to all our pals...
And 50 people RSVP'd yes! So over the weekend we had a BIG housewarming rager at the new place. We had an amazing time!
I carefully planned a menu full of major deliciousness and enlisted some of my most talented pals with baking skills to assist me. We made lemon bars, cake batter truffles, salted caramel brownies, donut & fruit skewers, and my trusty chocolate chip bread pudding - all from scratch! Recipes and pictures will be posted on the blog tomorrow :)
I also served Diddy Riese cookies and an enormous red velvet cake from Susiecakes. YUM.
The spread! (Any excuse to use my fancy serving dishes is a major plus in my book!)
Our wonderful parents came too! Here's Ram's fam...
And the Silverman ladies decked in black:
I wish I had more pictures but I was busy running around the entire place, chatting with everyone and giving house tours and refilling glasses - it was a whirlwind. I barely got to see Ram after we took this picture! (Like my polka dot apron?! I love being domestic.)
Guess who came in town for the weekend?! That's right, Gerrick - who is now known as Gerrick C :) So amazing seeing my best friend!!!!
Here's a special thing we did - all our friends being in the same place was the perfect opportunity to hang our mezuzah on our door jam! Ram's mom brought us a gorgeous one from her last trip to Israel and Ram's dad, who is a rabbi, helped us hang it and bless our home :) It was so special!
We managed to get our party animal siblings to stay still enough to take a photo with us - total framer:
More pictures of our amazing friends:
The last guests didn't leave til almost 1:00am! Such an amazing night with the best friends and family in the world. And now our house is officially warmed!
Stay tuned tomorrow for more pictures and recipes, as promised!
