Wedding Bells Part 2

So the wedding day is only a week away and we have pretty much wrapped up all the plotting and planning. The perfect dress has been bought. yes, there was much squealing, ooo -ing and awww-ing. No, I didn’t take a picture of the dress because the bride has to have some surprises left.

The food has been taken care of, well what we can do until the day before. The wedding favors for all the guests have been packed..which of course are over at my godmothers and wouldn’t you know it, I was going to take a nice picture of them but of course who would forget her camera….yep that’s me. Picture if you will cute little clear plastic boxes shaped like umbrellas for the guests and one in the shape of a wedding dress and suit for the bride and groom. Inside those cute little boxes are delicious chocolate candies. Yes, I know what you are thinking…umbrellas? for wedding favors? For the past 2 months it has pretty much rained every day. So much so that trees have been uprooted, lakes have been over flowing and well…this pretty much  says it all…

So when we saw the umbrella boxes we thought how cute and appropriate. What can I say, we all have a sense of humor, wedding guests included.  We are, however, keeping our fingers crossed that maybe the day of the wedding will be rain free. At least for a few hours because the wedding is supposed to be held in a very lovely garden adorned all in tea roses.

But if the rain continues, we will make it just as lovely indoors.

I guess that means we might have more planing to do.

Wedding Bells Part 1

After almost nine years of my dad’s passing, my mom is getting remarried. I’m so thrilled that she has finally found someone special a second time.

She decided she wants a small July wedding, so the race has been on for me and my God-Mother to put this together for them. I think we have hit up every decoration, hobby and food store in town.

She really didn’t want anything lavish as far as decorations or food is concerned. One thing we came up with, was to have cupcakes for the guests and a small cake just for the two of them to cut into. Besides, who doesn’t love cupcakes. I knew there was one place that had the best cupcakes in town…..

The Chocolate Moose.

These cupcakes are swooon worthy. What could be better than salted caramel chocolate, red velvet, chocolate peanut butter and vanilla. Now hopefully we can just get everyone to eat just one.

Now I want a cupcake.
