Little Man in a Tie

  We enjoyed celebrating our little guys special blessing day. We were surrounded by our family and close friends which made the day even more special! Many came from far away, so we made sure to feed everyone to thank them for joining us. We set up a slider hamburger bar and a nice dessert table, as well as many of the other delights people offered to bring! Here are some fun photos of Christians special day.

Turning 1!

What sweet little birthday girl! I was so happy to be asked to do a little smash cake for Brielle's 1st birthday, and these pics are just adorable! I love how the beige cake stands out against her adorable pink outfit!

Toddler Made

My daughter wanted to make cookies for her Grandma, so we whipped up some cookies and after icing them white and letting it harden, I turned her loose with edible markers!
They turned out so cute!

Beautiful Summer Wedding

It is so much fun to do the cakes and deserts for weddings, but it is even better when the wedding is for your little sis! For her wedding, she wanted style she wanted to do a simple but classic cake in white buttercream, since neither of them cared much for fondant, and then she wanted to pair it with a desert table featuring some cupcake jars I had made the previous summer and cake pops-which her fiancé loves! Unfortunately the cupcakes I had done were a cream cheese frosting, and the venue didn't have a refrigerator, so we just did a basic buttercream frosting, but they were still yummy! Here are some pics from the beautiful, and yummy day!!

Springtime Bridal Shower

Spring is such a beautiful time for an outdoor shower! I was so glad that my sister's bridal shower would be able to be held right when the flowers were coming out, but before it got too warm to enjoy being outside for awhile! We were lucky to have such a beautiful day! The color theme for the shower came from her invitations, which were perfect for a springtime theme!
Guests were asked in advance to bring their favorite recipe on a matching card to place in the recipe box we had on the guest table once they arrived. They were also invited to leave a few words of advice for the bride, as well as write an idea for a fun date night activity on a stick for the bride and groom before going to their seats for lunch.
 Guests were then given time to visit and fill out the quick bride quiz and "purse game" questions until all the guests had arrived.
The lunch menu was our Slider Bar and dessert table. Guests created their own sliders, custom grilled by my wonderful husband, nice enough to offer his Saturday for the event, then they were able to visit the dessert table, filled with the brides favorite goodies and treats. Among them were Cherry Chip Cupcakes, Almond Sugar Cookies, Pistachio Macarons, White Chocolate and Lemon Truffle Balls, Cucumber Limeade, Blackberry Mint water and an assortment of her favorite candies.
 
Games, gifts and fun were had by all, and as a parting gift; all guests received either a orange dreamsicle sugar scrub (which smelled divine) or a pink lemonade sugar scrub as a parting gift! What a fun shower to host!

the beautiful bride to be!
