  1. I think I liked this on Pinterest!! Have fun on your engagement party!! We had a short engagement so we didn't have one! Don't be too nervous, usually everyone behaves themselves at these things! Oh and by the way along the lines of my interesting gadgets, they also have a donut maker, and mini cupcake maker! They are all at macy's and some at bed bath and beyond if you wanna look! I think they range from $20-40. Good luck! Can't wait to hear how it goes!
