A Nice Send Off Love Kit

aecake

Boy and my friends, A & E, just got married recently and held their beautiful reception at a really cool art gallery/event center in Laguna Beach. Their wedding cake was beautiful and very elegant, not disrupted by a bunch of superfluous design as many wedding cakes are. The flowers look so radiant and dashing against the smooth milky white cake. Everyone had an awesome time, as we toasted to the bride and groom, the alcohol flowed freely, and house music got people's booty shakin.

For A & E's wedding present, Boy and I decided to make them a nice gift basket, with of course some champagne. A cheese basket sounded like the best option, but since they were leaving at the end of the week for their honeymoon to Argentina I thought the cheese might goto waste. How about some sweets and treats to go with the bubbly?

marie belle chocolates... so adorable!

For the bubbly we got Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Rose Reserve 1999. Veuve Clicquot is delicious but I thought a rose may add a bit more celebratory and romantic tint to the night. The sweets included were Ferrero Rafaello, Little Flower Candy Company's Sea Salt Caramels, Marich Espresso Caramels, and the beautifully packaged Marie Belle Chocolate. I also baked some Wild Blueberry Jam Thumbprint cookies, packaged it in a skinny cellophane bag and tied it up with a beautiful muted green ribbon. Hopefully they got to enjoy the bubbly and a few of the cookies before they rushed off to have an amazing holiday in Argentina. :)

You always come up with the best ways to make each gift personal rather than something you "just" bought.
