Our week could’ve started and ended with this dinner. It was such a highlight, we met so many wonderful people, and celebrated an exciting new chapter with our dear friends at Cricut. Here’s a peek at our dinner with Cricut at Caffe Molise in Salt Lake City. (Try the Brown Butter Butternut Squash Ravioli, whoa.) Huge thank you to the amazing Becky Kimball for taking all these beautiful photos! You can catch all the festivities and how everyone has been using the Explore on their #explorecricut hash tag.
The table, with a gorgeous garland by Lizy’s Lilies.
The menus were hand-written by Cassie from @theprintshop and then Jenna loaded the images into Cricut’s Design Space and this machine simultaneously cut the menu out, and wrote all the text, in one pass. Every letter every flourish was written by the Cricut Explore, tt’s truly remarkable!
Succulents for everyone take home from from the dream world that is Sun River Gardens in Orem, Utah. It’s a beautiful nursery and gift shop and it is our happy place.
Heather rocking our vine crown (another project designed and created using the Explore!) and showing off the menu.
Emily, Jenna and Nicole, happily hosting! We had an all-black dress code and everyone looked so chic. Shopping guide after the jump!
We loved how these 3 foot balloons from TomKat Studios instantly added a festive feeling to our green table decor.
Becky took a step outside to catch the whole scene. You can catch a little shadowed glimpse of our cloud and rain drop garlands cut with, you guessed it, the Explore!

Our dinner was such a good time. Lively conversation was happening at every turn and friends were made instantly.
A peek at the gift box we had for each guest. It was a killer grouping (see this post for a breakdown of each item), but Cricut’s surprise stole the show…
After dinner we had each guest blow up a balloon, and then pop it!
Where they found a voucher for a complimentary Cricut Explore for each of them!
Cheers were shouted, neighboring diners were startled, and we hear even a few tears were shed. We totally get it, for an avid crafter, a small business owner, for someone who just wants an easy way to make a project happen, the Cricut Explore truly changes the game. It makes your wildest creative dreams a reality, and as you’ll see over the next year of posts, we’ve had an absolute ball incorporating it into our crafting and blog content.
We weren’t sure how long we would be able to dine with Cricut’s inspiring CEO, Asish. Luckily we showed him a good enough time that he stayed the whole evening with us! His career and background are impressive to say the least, so when he says that bringing Cricut to this new level of creativity as a lifestyle has been his favorite project so far is so exciting!
To the awesome staff at Caffe Molise, our second family at Cricut, and our thirty incredible guests, THANK YOU! We hope you had as great a night as we did!
