"dirty 30" birthday party!

my sister hosted a "dirty 30" themed birthday party for her boyfriend on new year's day. they just moved into a new home a few days ago and it already looked so put together - hosting a party a few days after moving in is quite a feat! everyone gathered around the tv to watch college bowl games and nosh on yummy food my sister made [I am seriously obsessed with the mini chicken and waffles!]:

powerade and water for those nursing a NYE hangover
mimosa bar with fresh fruit and juices and beer
hummus and pimento cheese served in bell peppers
mini chicken and waffles
chocolate peanut butter "dirty" dump cake
the mini chicken and waffles inspiration originally came from a cookbook [tiny food party by teri lyn fisher] we saw with recipes for a homemade version. my sister and the birthday boy pan fried small nugget-sized pieces of chicken and used a toothpick to secure the chicken on top of individual mini eggo waffles then drizzled with syrup. I would take it one step further and buy nuggets from chick-fil-a instead of preparing the chicken myself. so fun and so easy, I really can't wait to make these sometime soon.

a three layer chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting "dump" cake topped with crushed oreos and gummy worms... mmmmm this cake was so decadent, moist, and delicious

mimosa bar: 4 juices + 4 fruits
handmade signs featuring music, events, movies, and sports highlights from the year he was born
