Mac and Cheese Bar Tips & Ideas

Even as a non-cheezer, I love the concept of a Mac and Cheese Bar for a party or shower. Cook up your favorite macaroni and cheese recipe, then create a bar of fun toppings to let you guests customize their own creation— ham, bacon, different kinds of cheese (blue cheese for a something blue!), mushrooms, asparagus. Let your imagination run wild– and encourage your guests to do the same! Mac and Cheese Bar Inspo Brace yourself. You’re about to get very hungry. This idea is one I haven’t seen before.

My dear friend got to work baking cupcakes for the party that evening.  Based on the contents of the envelope, the cupcake batter was to be pink or blue, and we would find out the baby’s gender, right along with our guests! In the days leading …
