When: back in October (yes I realize it's almost December)
What: a S'mores roast!!
Why: mostly because I LOVE Fall and any excuse for a party, but also to quietly celebrate two very important birthday's - Brett's 30th and Weston's 1st
To me, Fall and parties just go together, so when the weather starts to cool, I start to get the party itch! Since we were celebrating two milestone birthdays this year, I was dying to throw one big combined birthday fall bash. My unpretentious husband shot that down real quick. :) Instead, Brett allowed me a low-key s'mores roast to celebrate the fall season, where the only mention of my husband's looming oldness was a vague banner hung in the background. Good enough for me!
The set up...
We munched on...
...and s'more goldfish.
Seriously, what doesn't taste good with a little chocolate, marshmallow, and graham?!
For roasting we had...
...marshmallows: strawberry, toasted coconut, chocolate-vanilla, mint chocolate, regular, and jumbo;
...chocolate: Hershey's, Reese's, and Cookies and Cream;
...and graham crackers: regular and chocolate.
Talk about YUM!!
Then we got our roast on... :)
Overall, we had about 40 friends and family that came to help us enjoy the beautiful night, great weather, and yummy treats. Thanks to everyone for such a fun night! I think I see a new fall tradition brewing. :)
