Ok, so for the next 2 weeks it’s all things wedding for me. Steff is tying the Knot to her beau Ken on August 3 (I am her maid of honor, planner, designer and florist for this event – so I will be a very busy girl!). I shared a few posts with you already regarding planning and her bachelorette party. Now I would like to share with you one very SWEET gesture that was given to Steff for her shower, from someone she has never met!
After I had posted in January about Steff’s wedding, I received a lovely comment from a reader and baker Elizabeth Houde of Sweet Tales Cake Boutique in Dracut, Massachusetts.
This is what she wrote:
Rebecca, your friend is so lucky to have you helping in her wedding. We have been following your blog and it was your blog which inspired us to create a cake shop call Sweet Tales Cake Boutique. We will love to make your friend’s cake for free in your honor or perhaps her shower cake. I believe your hometown is NH and our little cake studio is located in Dracut, Mass. Let us know, our face book address is Sweet Tales Cake Boutique. Elizabeth Houde
I was so touched reading her comment! I have never been the inspiration for anyone’s business before and it was such an honor for me. AND an offer to make a special cake for Steff? I emailed her after her reading her comment and said that would be honored for her to make her bridal shower cake. At first we had setup a meeting for us to go in a meet with Elizabeth, but our schedules never matched up so we sent over Steff’s favorite cakes flavors and I sent the invite and shower theme over for inspirations and I asked Elizabeth to do what she does best and surprise us.
And surprise us she did! Steff’s cake was AMAZING! I wanted to send a big THANK YOU out to the very talented Elizabeth for making such a lovely cake. I am hoping to meet with her during a visit to New Hampshire in the fall to do a proper post featuring her incredible talent and her bakery, so stay tuned! But in the meantime – this is my huge thank you for making Steff feel very special at her bridal shower!
