MommyBlogExpert's Party

During the casual evening I served cold drinks, fresh fruit and my original California Mini Tostada Appetizers and Jamaica Coconut Pineapple Cheesecake creations, these were inspired by my home airport of Los Angeles and dream destination of Montego Bay, Jamaica.  In keeping with the travel theme, party goers were also treated to pretzels and peanuts provided by Southwest Airlines. 

MBE's followers were kept updated on the party festivities and good food live via Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. If you missed last night's posts, you'll see many of the images shared on social media throughout this story.
