wedding ideas

Standard

Here are some ideas that I used for my wedding

[hand made pom poms, add a pop of color to a blank canvas, click here to learn how to make]

[guest book tree, have every guest leave their thumb print and signature in place of the traditional guest book. It will be a cherished piece of art work for ever and ever ]

[ice cream sundae bar for dessert]

  My husband and I are die hard ice cream fans and wanted to share that with our guest. We used large mason jars and old milk jugs to house the toppings.  I also used chalk board that I painted white to display the different types of ice cream flavors.  We also had waffle bowls to add the complete effect of a yummy sundae

*******************

Here is my little dessert table at victory lane.  When I walked in, everyone that worked there commented on how cute they were.  I was very happy with how they turned out. The head caterer came over and asked me what business I was with and I said, ” It’s mine, it is just a little hobby of mine!” and he said, “Well it looks like you picked a great hobby, they look wonderful.”  I hope they were a major hit with everyone that attended the function they were hosting.

Today I am thankful for the weekend

it is time to relax, spend time with friends and family, and make memories.

100 cake pops later

Standard

I have an order for 100 cake pops due today, I deliver them at 4:30! I learned a lot from this little endeavor, I will be charging more for themed cake pops- they take way to much time.  I split it over two days but it probably took me around 14 hours to complete these. Mass production is hard, esp. when you only have the bottom space of a fridge to use.  I got them done though and are so happy with how they turned out.  Thanks to my dads handy work, I now have two awesome drying racks to use and that helped out tremendously.

Today I am thankful for my mom

Seriously, ALWAYS says the right thing at the right time to make you feel better.  It must be a magical power you get when you turn into mom.  I want to be just like her when we start to have kids, I sometimes find myself worrying “what if I can’t do motherhood as perfect as she did” but then I tell myself, if I am anything like her, I will find a way to make it work .  She always has a open shoulder to lean on and a warm loving smile to share  when you walk into the door.  She is by far better then any  super hero out there and has the power to open the flood gates with just a simple hug or phone call. She can get a stain out of your favorite jacket, patch a hole in your favorite shirt, cook a turkey and make gravy from scratch, and raise five daughters (with the help of my dad) that have survival skills,  are business driven, and bakers.  Thank You mom for being so wonderful ALL the time.
