let them eat cake!

(note: I tried to post this early this morning but could not upload pictures, hence the delay. Sorry you've had to look at Saturday's post for so long...) Yesterday I went to the Nashville bridal show with Debi and Sammy (and a friend of Sammy’s) to check it all out, and see if I could make a dent in the effort to find someone to do our wedding cake. I was hoping for lots of samples, and there were a few. But I was so impressed with one vendor in particular that I will call them later today to schedule an appointment to go talk with them about what I want. Here are a few pictures of some of their creations. It’s hard to see the details of the “ribbon” cake, since it was sitting atop a pedestal that was taller than me, but I thought it was a fun design. Most of what they had to display didn’t fall into the traditional design category, but that’s fine. I’d rather know what someone is capable of doing rather than just seeing what they’ve done.

Attendant attire is still plaguing me. I saw a dress (I’ll post it another time) that I just loved, but it is the wrong color (yes, I’m sure that could be changed) and wrong style for mid-forties gals. But oh, the color itself is luscious, and I just couldn’t take my eyes off of it. There were also some lovely floral presentations, but a lot of it was also over the top. Not on my budget! My floral budget is very limited, which saddens me since I love flowers, but there are alternatives to that. We’ve opted to spend our money elsewhere.

It’s a busy week for us: Ken’s daughter and son-in-law will be here for breakfast before they head back to Savannah from KY, there’s a doctor appointment, homework for me for a meeting on Saturday, elections on Thursday (Ken is an election “judge”), and a handful of other details, not to mention ongoing work on the web site. And Jayne, if you have a chance to read this, we’re thinking of you as you move to your new house this week! Have a good one, y’all!

cakes are great, the first one seems just right for a scrapbooker, is that the ribbon cake?
