Cupcakes galore and twins everywhere!!!

So our cupcakes and cocktails party went off pretty good..... some likes cupcakes better than cocktails and some liked cocktails better than cupcakes (hhmmm my husband)!!! It's funny how before I had twins I didn't really know any twins and now that I have my own I am surrounded by twins......
One of Jon's coworkers in the ICU has a set and of identical boys (the older curly haired cuties) of course you all know E and E and I invited a blogging buddy who came with her A.D.O.R.A.B.L.E. "almost 12 week" old B/G twins M and S...... see my blog roll Vicious Cycle of Cycles (sorry I still don't know how to add links here). She and her husband were nice, the kids damn cute and it was fun to meet someone from the blogosphere.
Here is Edie Claire -- she curled right up and passed out. That is Jon's boss Misi.........
Here she is fast asleep AGAIN........ was she tired or bored??????
Here is E squared waiting for their party guests to arrive...........
Now the yumminess......... I made these cupcake daisy arrangements. You can call me a dork I don't care......... I had fun!!! (gotta love the plastic brown tablecloth huh!!!)
Here is the cupcake table....... I made these and some folks brought more cupcakes..... we still have a kitchen FULL of cupcakes. Not helping my weightwatchers here.... I have done well though. Only ate 3 this morning (haha)...... but I added the points to my points tracker. Can't eat again until Wednesday. It was worth it.
I am oh so proud of this giant cupcake cake. Yes I made that all by myself!!! I am not a baker by any means but I bought this cake pan and it inspired my cupcakes and cocktails party theme. We did not even cut the cake (a waste I know) but it sure it cute. Don't you think?
A lollipop bouquet. It disappeared faster than you can say lollipop bouquet.........
For some odd reason I felt the need to paint and hang this E in the kitchen for the party......... like I said DORK !!!

Let me assure the blogosphere that those cupcakes tasted just as good as they looked!

Thanks for having us! We had a great time meeting Edie, Ella and their big ole bunch of family and friends.

I LOVE the flower cupcakes design! You were right! You should be a party planner. And the E? Totally non-dork like. I'm glad the party was a smashing success!

I don't think you're a dork at all, in fact, I am jealous of your creativity! You did a great job!

PS - Brooklyn has the blanket to match the girls' outfits there. Dont you loooove Gymboree? I can't wait til B is big enough to start wearing her Gymboree clothes!

Yum! I love cupcakes! I guess 11:30pm is a little late for me to be making them. Darn...

You did a great job with them and they all look so cute and yummmy! I love the idea of the party. Great job!
