This was our first Wedding Celebration in honor of a very wonderful lady, Bethany. Because of her love for flowers, we chose to have fresh flowers around the room and even on the cakes. These little mini cakes were adorable in size and beautiful in looks.
We had enough for each lady, but after they took their first bite, I think we should have made at least two for each one.
They were made with a vanilla cake, raspberry filling, and Rich's Better Creme frosting, which is one of our favorite frostings. It's not too sugary like some cakes and more whippy like cool whip, only tastier. It's delicious! And the flowers were edible too, coming straight from my flower beds at home. We had a very elegant evening with a complete meal and candle light. Since we were preparing the meal and all those cakes, we decided to make the center pieces simple yet pretty. Candles, real zinnias and light purple gem stones on top of a mirror were just perfect for the center of our tables.
Next comes what we do in place of games and silly stuff. We typically have ladies bring a poem, story, word of advice, or Verse from the Bible that they would like to share with the guest of honor. It's open to whoever wants to share and during this time we prepare a basin of water and let her feet soak while ladies take turns (if they choose to) washing her feet.
I love this picture as it is her great grandma and grandma together washing her feet. What a blessing for her to be loved and served in this way.
