40th Birthday {Hokie style}n w

My good friend Alyson recently turned 40 and when I asked the color scheme I was told “HOKIE” colors of course! I must admit I was not thrilled but then when I started to make the colors, orange & maroon, I thought it turned out really cool! 
What do you think?
Happy 40 Aly!

Power Rangers { wedding }

PhotoGrid_1365815062263

I am always so blessed to be a part of  celebrations. I even feel  more blessed to get calls from past clients to share in even more family celebrations!  I met these two when I was doing {} sister’s wedding last year. They were the taste testers!

The story that led to this cake is just so cute! B & G  have been best friends since they were little kids and they were obsessed with the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. He was the red, she the pink. This is my “grown up” Power Ranger cake with fondant pink & red flowers and hand made fondant Power Rangers.  The cake and cupcakes were Red Velvet with a cream cheese frosting.

Q & I { I DO! }

What a super fun couple. What a great WEDDING!!!!

Where do I even start?

Location Carrigan Farms in Mooresville, NC is just breathtaking. I highly recommend this location to anyone looking for a special place to host an event.

The amazing Jessica Ofalt of Morehead City was the photographer and she was just a joy to work with!! Check out this amazing pic. The scenery is to die for!

Our good friend and DJ Phish did an excellent job! Keeping the music and beat flowing! My girls at the Hickory Farmer’s Market did all the flowers and they were stunning!

The cake was so fun to make! The happy couple LOVES red velvet, but she didn’t want red cake in the pics so I surprised them with Blu Velvet topped with fresh strawberry,topped with chocolate! YUM

Dream…big dreams

The question I get nearly everyday…
when are you going to open a your own place?  bakery/catering/event planning…
the answer would be when
A. I win the lottery
B. my Fairy Godmother arrives
C. the economy gets better

Sadly, A and B have a better chance of happening than C.  I love to DREAM and as my Mom always sad to me (literally like everyday)
“Dream big dreams, reach for the stars and if  you  fall at least you will land in the clouds”
That being said if I could here is what I would want. I just LOVE Maxie B’s in Greensboro, NC. I feel at home when I walk in that place. It is so whimsical and I love everything about it.

Toodles- Mama Bird
