Girls Night In Serves Up Fun with Amazing and Delicious Local Eats

The table is ready! Pretzels, cupcakes, savory sides!
I recently did a feature with my media affiliate Explore-Philly, where we worked with UK company Butlers in the Buff, a new twist on bachelorette parties. For the evening, we had our very own butler in the buff, Daniel, serving us all night.

I mean, it’s research, people. I am a writer, (and actually half the small guest list was writers) and we all work very hard.  We quite enjoyed the eye candy and being served all night long, as well as mixing fabulous drinks and serving excellent food.

We began with cocktails from Hangar vodka- I had bought a cherry juice to try, and Daniel got creative in the kitchen, mixing excellent cocktails. 
We also enjoyed Barefoot and Cupcake wines, and Diet Cokes.

Smoked Bacon Bruschetta from KoP Magganio's

A pretzel tray from the generous Philly Pretzel Factory in Collegeville was sent along with a huge amount of Rivets and delicious honey-mustard dip, cheese sauce, and cinnamon dip, which were just delicious. This was perfect as everyone enjoyed pretzel rivets and a glass of champagne as they arrived. Don’t forget to bring these yummy pretzel trays to any holiday party!

We then enjoyed appetizers-  Smoked Bacon Bruschetta-  from King of Prussia Maggianos- soft warm goat cheese on a round of warm French bread, topped with thick-cut delicious bacon and a sprig of arugula. These were so appealing and tasty! Daniel then served us small plates of Magganio’s famous baked ziti and sausage- warm, savory pasta with a marinara sauce and parmesan cheese was just what we needed for a cold November night.

The Smoked Bacon Bruschetta is part of the new Features Menu, where each month a new chef is highlighted at Magganio’s. All of the dishes are authentic using the highest quality seasonal ingredients. Here are features that will be in Magganio’s restaurant starting December.

After such a savory meal, we needed something sweet to close out our meal, and ICED by Betsy of Royersford delivered- delicious, sweet cupcakes such as Pumpkin Spice, Banana Nut, Cookies n’ Cream, PB & C, Pure Cupcake (my favorite) and Caramel Apple kept us quite happy all evening, and everyone went home with a cupcake as well. Thanks to ICED by Betsy in Royersford!

ICED by Betsy cupcakes are so delightful!
To top off our evening, we chatted and enjoyed the newest Godiva holiday truffles. Milk and dark chocolates in bite-size morsels with delicious flavors such as white chocolate, gingerbread, cranberry, milk, caramel, and dark chocolates were delightful; also check out Godiva’s season’s offerings of a 32-piece Limited Edition Chocolate Gift Box featuring milk and dark chocolate creations, as well as chocolate snowflakes, inside a chic red gift box. 
Other excellent gifts for the holidays include the Hot Cocoa Gift Set, and the Limited Edition Holiday Chocolate Truffles Gift Box.

Daniel, our buff butler, chats with the ladies.

Daniel was an absolute blast, making us giggle and chat all night long- we definitely needed a party night! Butlers in the Buff is a perfect addition to any party- nothing naughty, just good clean cheeky fun and no one felt uncomfortable. 

We loved being served all night and playing Cards Against Humanity and just having a blast. Having a cute guy serve us ladies is something I must do for all my girls’ nights!
