A Baby Shower and an Engagement

Karren was able to throw a baby shower for one of her friends, Darcy Taylor, this weekend. Earlier in the week, she created an announcement which she sent to the people Darcy specified. Unfortunately, she forgot to put the address on the invitation, but everyone figured it out. :) The breakfast at the shower consisted of crepes and eggs Benedict. Karren also made this cake for her.

Karren also made a cake for an engagement that happened at The Melting Pot in downtown Portland. The couple were big fans of cherries and the future groom ordered the cake for use in the proposal. Karren combined their love of cherries with the location of the proposal to design this cake. We hope all went well that evening.

Treasure Chest

Karren created an open Treasure Chest last weekend for a 3 year old birthday party. According to the child's mother, "It turned out incredible. Everyone kept asking where we got it, and how delicious it was. I passed on your info. I hope thats ok. It really made [child]'s party come to life. Thank you for that!" Karren was also really pleased with it. When I got home, she had me go straight to the fridge to look at it. I thought it looked awesome, as usual.

The Art of Weddings

Karren participated in the Art of Weddings this week. We set up on Tuesday evening. Karren made a 30 person wedding cake which is beatiful as always and stayed up until 1:30 AM on Tuesday night. Wednesday morning, we got up at 3:30 AM (yes, after two hours of sleep) and participated in the KOIN 6 Morning news show (see below). It was fun, but Karren was afraid of the interview, so the reporter kept our section nice and short (perhaps too short). The actual event was tonight from 5-9 PM. It was great meeting all the vendors and couples! Among our favorites are Missionary Chocolates, 1st Comes Love, Sassafras Catering, and Oh Baby. Reviews were posted at Social Enterprises and EJP Events.
