Life has been pretty normal lately – thank goodness! For awhile things were so hectic, I thought I would never get another good night’s sleep again!
It is confirmed, I am ordering my dress from
I am trying to figure out the reception food. My vision is a dessert reception, with tons of cookies and cakes. Like this:
I want a cake buffet in there too. Like this:
Now I have to figure out how to make all this for 200 people.
I was planning on making 800 cookies, 4 sheet length heart shaped cakes (Awesome idea – 2 layer heart shaped cakes!), and 8 Viennese style cakes (each is 1 layer). If there are 200 people, that is 4 cookies a person, and the cakes will serve about 150. My aunt Ruthie is making my wedding cake, so that will serve about 120 – 150, so everyone will get a piece of cake and 4 cookies. I think that I would also like 150 cupcakes, and about 100 brownies. The great thing about baked goods is that they are so cheap. For the brownies, I just need 4 box mixes and cupcake liners to put the brownies in. For the cupcakes, that is the liners, 6 box mixes, and 3 cans of frosting. Rather inexpensive, but still a stunning display.
Matt says that people will help with food, but I would rather have enough food for everyone, without needing help. And if people want to help, then fruit and tea sandwiches are what I would like best. So we will see!!
