    Pick yourself up off the floor!

    This style shoot location was at a new venue called The Farmhouse in Montgomery Texas.  It showcases a bit more modern feel and features trends we are seeing for 2017 with fabulous color combinations in flours and decor.  The cake features a geode style design with fondant and gold leaf detailing.  Geodes can be done in a variety of colors and styles to match your wedding and really show an eye for the unusual but also contemporary classic without going outside the boundaries of wedding cake styles.

    Wedding cupcakes are still hugely popular to compliment a  smaller cake to cut or used as a stand a lone in a variety of flavors for everyone to enjoy.  Consider flavor and color when you choosing your wedding cupcakes to match your wedding or special event.  The cupcake tops can be styled using different and unique designs to add texture and dimension.  At the end of the day, you can have your cake and cupcakes too!

    Catering

    Before the economy went “south” a few years ago, I was thinking about attractive ways to market event catering.  I am like Rachael Ray: I’m not a professional educated chef, but have the love for cooking and was encouraged by wonderfully supported parents to pursue my dreams.  I do have an arts degree, so the creative in me is always working overtime, new food ideas, trends, photography, design…you name it, I love it all!

    I researched the Houston market and spent time looking at websites and countless menus of other reputable companies, chefs and caterers…what, how and where they were catering, what they offered etc.  One thing I noticed in conversations from my clients was that most people are not doing the traditional seated meal.  Not because it is not popular, but the price points for all the additional staff and labor just didn’t suit the budget.   You know, that budget where you want champagne, but end up only affording beer?  So, I had to ask myself, what about smaller meals, self serve or even appetizer oriented events?

    This is where the fun begins:  creating meals that are budget friendly, and to provide exceptional service with creative simple presentation.   This is not to say that some events are not elaborate with the must have carving stations and plated salads, linens, floral etc., but it does make for a fabulous solution of feeding the multitudes without breaking the bank!  And this is what we do.  We work with each client to create a meal or appetizer menu to suit the budget with contemporary, trendy and traditional tastes in mind.  We think it’s a SWEET idea to be budget friendly, offering everything you need in one stop— Dinner, desserts, candy bars, linens, and always the best chocolate fountains!
