Once upon a time, I was an event planner that loved the rush of putting together a successful event. I did it all – small fundraisers, huge charity galas, concerts for local musicians, and even a few club nights that enticed people to make tons of mistakes in the spirit of the “true university experience” (no, I’m not naming names) – and I was absolutely addicted to the high I got from being balls out stressed about everything. Come on, I can’t be the only one, right? Right?? Fine, it was a little weird…
The one thing that most of my events had in common is that they had to have an amazing theme. And even though my professional event planning days are over, I still love a good theme party. Like the Waffle Fete that my friend, Miss Fit, threw just for the hell of it.
The day called for waffles with delicious fixings and toppings, and a side of hipster for extra iron-y.
We made epic chicken and waffle sandwiches…
… and waffles with toppings like blueberries, strawberries, Nutella, caramel, ice cream, and good ol’ maple syrup.
You also had your choice of water, juice, or tea, which all go perfectly with waffle delights, as well as sangria with an extra dose of vodka, which goes perfectly with – let’s be honest – anything.
How adorable are these Hello Kitty waffles by the way? Almost too good to eat adorable, that’s how. But I did anyway. And yes, they were purrrfect.
What was the last theme party you went to?
