For the rest of desserts I made raspberry crumble bars, caramel brownies, and lemon bars--all things I've made before. I also made individual banana cream pies. My mom gave me the recipe and I've made the pie several times, but it was my friend Candy's idea to make them mini! Mini graham cracker crusts with a layer of banana, budding, chocolate mousse, and whipped cream.
Jack did a lovely job making them look pretty.
I also wanted to share pictures of the decorations! I got the idea from a great blog here. I made a banner with the couple's names and then Jack cut out red hearts
and hung them from the ceiling, and they were so pretty. I even had some extra so I hung them in my room and I think I'm going to make my own banner. My favorite thing about the decorations was a total surprise--but because the timing and lighting of the party the decorations made some great shadows on the walls.
There was a really good turnout and throwing this party for Alexis made me stop and think about how long we've been friends, all the good times we've had together, and I'm really glad that I got to do this for her!
