Taste testing for Wedding Reception
(I am taking the photo) In the photo: 
Devin (back left) and his parents.(right side) 
 Laryssa and her dad. (front left side) 

We weren't sure what we were in for last 
Night, Feb 3, 2016. We knew we were
 taste testing in order to decide on a menu
 for Laryssa andDevin's Wedding
 in June 2017, but we 
weren't sure what the chef was making. 
Now as I write this, I haven't gotten the brides
 permission to say what we have decided on so far. 
Yes, so far.   
We couldn't taste everything last night. 
Just too much food. 
I think it is safe for me to show what was absolutely 
delicious but didn't make it to the menu. 
This was a butternut squash soup. 
Very smooth and tasty. 
We are expecting warm weather so we opted not
 to have soup. 
Tomato and mozzarella. I think it has a fancier name
 but I can't remember it right now. It was also very 
tasty but we aren't serving  it at the reception. 
This is flourless chocolate cake and ice cream.
 Sweet and yummy but just a little too heavy
 after all the delicious food. 
It's a tough job but we just have to continue
 going back to test desserts until we find the right one.
 No, no that's ok. I know you are all willing to help but
 I wouldn't want to put that burden on anyone. 
The six of us have accepted the task and we are committed. 
If you would like to go to a very pretty place for dinner, 
with very good food then you will find this venue in the town
of New Hamburg. It's called Puddicombe and we definitely
 recommend it. It's not just for events. You can have a nice
 romantic meal there or a cozy family gathering. 
Laryssa and Devin have chosen a beautiful location
 for their wedding reception.

Feb 3, 2016 Smartie Valentine

Wednesday, February 3, 2016

A quick and easy way to decorate up a box of 
smarties.  
And these smarties are perfect for sharing. 
On the right hand side there is a yellow smartie,
a blue smartie and a red smartie.  
They each open to give you an individual serving
of smarties.  
How cool is that?  Eat one serving per day 
or 
share with two friends.  
I had three children so this would have been perfect
for them when they were little.  
I just love this idea.  Of course I love cute boxes
and this is just the cutest.

January 31, 2016 Hooray Treat Bags

Sunday, January 31, 2016
 Quick and Easy but Looks Good!
Yup, these are the kind of things I love.
Have you ever been told you procrastinate?
Or that you leave things to the last minute?
I have been told these things several times.
Well if you can relate to me than this idea is
for you.
These treat bags will take you  less than
 10 minutes to make.  But it looks like it took longer.
So grab your Whisper White Card Stock, your favourite
ink colours, and some iridescent ice embossing powder.
The Hooray! from Perfect Pairings stamp set which
is FREE when you place a $60 order.
Hard to tell in the picture but they sparkle.
And coloured mini staples/stapler.
Stamp image, Heat Emboss, Cut out, and
staple to these adorable Sketched Dots Tag a Bag
Gift Bags.  10 for $5.00
Fill with candy or if it's for crafters like these
ones were....pretty ribbon and embellishments.

Make them in different colours.
These are Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo.
OR
An even quicker but still cute idea.
Add a foil heart and a gold coloured clothespin.

Voila!

Shhhh.... No one has to know that these are quick
and easy to put together.  It's our little secret.
