Brown Bagging It

We have all been to at least one event where a boxed lunch or dinner was provided. Some have been very good, some have been adequate, some have been nothing to write home about.

I just want it noted that if Fabulous Catering is providing the boxed meal, I'm attending. Whatever the event.

No words, just photos. Be inspired.

James J. Hill

After all the griping about traffic and road closures, it really is about only one thing. The wedding, the details that make everything beautiful for the couple.

Fabulous Catering took care of feeding them gorgeous, scrumptious food. Bastian*Skoog bedecked and adorned the backdrop for it all: The James J Hill Library. While waiting for Flutag traffic to abate, I spent some time in the lower hallways enjoying family photographs of the Hill family.

Oh, and I brought the cake.
Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Miller.

Jack and Harley

Last week at this time I was dealing with a failing computer, no Internet connection and trying to dodge raindrops and hailstones.
Outdoor weddings and Harley's weren't compatible. Enter my bride, Rose.

Rose had called me for a surprise groom's cake. Harley Davidson fans and riders themselves, they were anticipating a large number of their guests to arrive by motorcycle for the reception. The logo was a nod to them all.

The Jack Daniels, well, does it really need to be explained?

A Star Is Born

Not only is this the name of a movie, or 2 if you count the remake, it's also how Juliette's parents felt the day she was born. Her smile is worthy of any camera, so the invitations included a film reel with Juliette's pretty little face beaming, or grinning or just plain looking cute within each frame.

Happy Birthday Juliette, a star was surely born!

What a Tart!

I love to make fruit tarts in the summer, and they are my mom's favorite dessert request.
They just fit into the whole picnic, any meal al fresco thing. With just a bit of glaze the berries and sliced fruit look just like jewels.

I helped Margaret at the Convention Center with these Macadamia crusted tarts today. Katrina's shots for the MN Bride Blog couldn't be any prettier. Talk about jewel tones.
