    It all looks AMAZING. Congrats on what looks like an incredible event. I want to eat those salted caramel cupcakes now! Please tell me a Seattle bakery makes the, regularly. I will totally drive 3 hours and cross international borders for those cupcakes.

    what an amazing event!
    I have TOTAL appreciation for the work that went into planning this! When I worked in Admin, at my current job, we put on a yearly conference..and a few other big events, and it CONSUMED us for months.

    I loved seeing it all put together, but our regular “work” got so backlogged because of it.

    we certainly didn’t have food like that, and it WAS for boring ole board members, haha but seeing it all come together was pretty rewarding!

    this must have been SO gratifying for you!

    you were certainly the right lady for the job!
