The greatest gift!

Jesus is the greatest gift I have ever received, but this Christmas he gave me another precious gift - my first grandson! Soren Paul Hines was born Christmas Eve at 9:41pm. He is a beautiful baby boy and I am thrilled to be a grandma! Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Gabel Bick Wedding

This weekend I had the honor of coordinating the wedding of Stacy Gabel & Marc Bick. It was an amazing day that went from 8am to 2am. It was all worth it as we watched the beautiful ceremony on the beach and the totally fun reception at the club. I especially loved when Mrs. Gabel came into the dining room while we were finishing decorating and "teared" up as she saw all of her hard work come together and create a very classy affair! Well done Kaye & Stacy! (and Mike and Marc)! It was a lot of hard work and the wind provided a challenge with the Chuppah on the beach - but we prevailed, thanks to Melissa of Bonita Flowers & Gift, and we prayed. The clouds threatened, but in the end it was all gorgeous.

Dilly Anderson Wedding

This past weekend, Katie married her best friend, Rob and I had the privilege of helping her plan her wedding day. The day was perfect thanks for Patty Bores of Sweet P Floral Design, Michelle Reed Photography and the Bonita Bay Club - thanks to Becky, Darcy, Danny and staff! The flowers were beautiful, Patty went over and above what we asked for. The club was wonderful to work with and they were all friendly and helpful. Michelle and Eric were a dream to work with and I can't wait to see some photos! For now, here are some pictures that we took. I'm especially grateful for my daughter Sarah who just knows what I need before I ask and is just there by my side. My husband, Jim is my rock and is my emergency contact - thank you honey, I love you.

Baby shower cake...

The WOW Factor Cakes!

Ok, I'm going to take a stab at this "blog" thing!

I attended a baby shower on Sunday and I met a delightfully, talented woman, Amy. I really enjoyed speaking with Amy, especially after I learned that she made the cake for the shower. The cake was designed as a bassinet with a canopy over it and a beautiful green bow cascading down over the folds of the canopy. What was even amazing is that it tasted so great. It was white cake with a thick cream and raspberry filing. Amazing! I found out that Amy made the cake for another baby shower that I attended in May - this cake was in the shape of Noah's Ark and every detail was perfect. Amy used chocolate fondant for the "wood" on the ark - it tasted like tootsie rolls! As creative and amazing as these cakes were, Amy specializes in wedding cakes! So, Amy is now a new "friend" of Chandelier Productions! I'm looking forward to working with Amy on a future wedding! Her site is - they are the WOW factor
