Winter Wedding Reception

Food, friends and family are amongst my favoritest things, and I prefer to enjoy them together. I’d put most of my budget towards a hearty meal of slow roasted beef infused with rosemary and garlic, served with loads of roasted veggies, fresh bread and red wine. Warm cocktails like mulled wine and hot chocolate would be served at cocktail hour, and warm cookies with ice-cold milk are served later in the evening. The cake would be rich and decadent, a spin off of Molly’s Winning Hearts and Minds cake, a favorite of mine.

The cake looks awesome and I love the cheese platter. I also really like how the silverware is very elegant and tasteful and looks like it belongs in a formal dinning room.

Love the milk and cookies idea (especially the glass bottles) reminds me of my school days

Yummy! I crave on that chocolate melting on every layer of that cake.

Being a cook myself, roast beef with rosemary and cheese platter caught my eye. I love the cookies and milk after to top things off. There is nothing like sharing a good delicious hearty meal with loved ones. Its the simple things in life that count.
