An Evening of Fashion ( and FOOD and CAKES)

This week flew like crazy. I think my head is still spinning. It ended with a blast though, which made me totally happy =)

Remember when you where little and you got a new toy? And you were super excited to play with your new shiny toy that still smelled like the store. Well that's how I felt this week. There were really so many firsts for us!

Well first off we catered our first wake. I was a bit apprehensive as it was a family friend who hired us and I always want to be on my toes with family because we all know if anyone is going to tell you as it is its your family. But in the end it went very well. It was a very serene, somber atmosphere, but I was happy I could help so the family could spend time with each other and not worry about food.

Now onto the show! What show? the fashion show that I've been going gaga about. It was Saturday! It was super. I really started preparing from last week because I wanted little details like tags and business cards to be on point. So after all the preparations here is what we had in the end =)
