A Berry Sweet Farewell

We were asked to put together a dessert table for Carol who was retiring after a long career with a local branch of a bank. She had been with the bank for 32 years! We definitely wanted to make her final day feel special and worthy of her dedication.

The Strawberry Fields theme was a fun and cheery way to celebrate Carol.  To allow the strong berry red color to shine, we went with a cool mint green and a rustic craft paper brown. Jennifer went to work on creating her fabulous rosettes, and Jeff made the picnic style pennant banner with country style patterns that read "A Sweet Farewell".

Guests could not believe that the strawberries sticking out of the green crates were not the real thing. Jennifer crafted these mouthwatering cakepops with strawberry cake, cream cheese frosting, and candy coating, complete with a sour straw stem. The chocolate cupcakes were made even more devine with red and mint green wrappers. The real berries were all picked fresh from local farms, just in case you wanted to know.

Jeff created the "Parting is such Sweet Sorrow" invitation that went out to the 80+ coworkers that wished Carol the best, now that she can spend her summer days relaxing by the pool.

 All the best Carol and thank you for letting us be a part of your day!
