Meet the Fockers Part II

After almost 7 years of being with the fiance our families finally met this past weekend at his graduation. Of course I was nervous / scared / all those emotions you get, but knowing my family and how talkative and friendly they are I knew it would go off without a hitch.

After the graduation we all headed out to dinner and after everyone came back to our apartment for some celebratory cake and coffee & tea champagne. 

I tried my best to make Eddie Ross proud and set up the cake, coffee and tea table with some fun linens and sterling silver from my Grandma.


These Ikea bottles are my favorite!  With a ribbon tag added, they make plain water and iced tea look pretty.


The whole set up

 This was all set up pretty last minute, so don't be too harsh.



Both families had a great time and we're already planning the next get together...before the wedding of course.


Congrats again to my fiance for graduating, I'm so proud of you!

I think your set up is lovely! Those teaspoons are gorgeous and I love your Ikea juice bottles they are awesome, I had no idea Ikea carried them! I love the silver cream and suger servers too, so sweet.

Glad the big meeting of the parents went well!! xoxo
