Last weekend Pam hosted a wedding party for some friends that recently took a romantic trip to Napa to get married at a vineyard. She ordered these cute cupcake papers and bride and groom pics from Williams-Sonoma. Then she asked me to bake 75 red velvet cupcakes, with a rich cream cheese frosting. Just to make sure the frosting was rich enough, I used a Paula Deen recipe. Yep. I used lots of lots of butter. I also baked the cupcakes in white papers so the color wouldn't bleed through the pretty papers.
I like my wood cake pedestal. I found it at Goodwill for $3 and painted it with the chalk paint in Old Ochre for the party.
This table and china cabinet actually belonged to our grandparents. It was in need of refinishing, so Pam painted it with Annie Sloan Old White chalk paint.
The gift table.
To get her house ready for the party, Pam did a lot of painting and sprucing up. I'll post some of those pictures a little later.
