I squeezed my metal bistro table in the tiny salon, filled the trays, and snapped only one quick photo. You can't adjust dim lighting and fuss with flowers while hungry people wait!
The dark green velvet skirt from my old table added weight to the white topper.
Are those ingredients for mimosas on the tray?
A wedding breakfast meant for a queen. Congrats on the day!
You have a sharp eye!!!
The bride brought the juice, champagne and that box of plastic stirrers (which I would have put in a separate glass if I had seen them).
I brought coffee, water, cups and pitchers for everything.
HOLY MOLEY that looks A-MAZ-ING! Way to go! It looks like a gourmet (very expensively catered :Wink: ) breakfast fit for a queen, indeed! What a great job!
How lovely! Food looks (and sounds) delicious...and so beautifully presented. Nice job!
Congratulations on doing it again! Now take a deep breath and go do it once more! At least with the box lunches I am hoping you only have to drop them off and not need to set up pretty display of them. I, too, hate disposable stuff when you can use "real" with no more effort.
I, too, immediately saw the champagne glasses for the mimosas. Aren't you glad you had strawberries to go in the glass!
Beautiful! You amaze...and now I'm starving!
AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What a blessing for the bride.
You really out did yourself.
Alexandra Stoddard would not have done it any better.
You are so amazing, Meredith! I can't wait to see what the boxed lunches look like.
I hope you helped yourself a mimosa for all of that hard work ;)
Another Meredith here! :) Love your blog and that breakfast looks amazing. Now it makes me wish I had gone to more trouble than Fruit Loops! :)
That looks fabulous! I would have loved for someone to do that for me on my wedding day. (Especially the mimsosa's, but since I was the only one unflustered I had to drive to the Ahtanum house to meet the cake lady that was delivering too early, so good thing I didn't)
Thanks for sharing! I think I will consider doing this for the next young couple at church now.
Beautiful! You're so talented.
You did a beautiful job - thanks for showing the pictures.
(Sorry, I made a pretty glaring typo error the first time.) You have such a talent for this kind of thing. Did you ever think about working for a magazine when your kids grow up? :) I love seeing your presentation ideas. I really need to work on mine!
What a lovely breakfast :)
It's just beautiful. You do such an amazing job. When you catch your breath and need something interesting to post, I would love to know how you keep things hot/warm during transportion. Can't wait to see how the boxed lunches turn out!
WOW!!! You did a great job! I can't wait to see what the boxed lunches look like. I hope that after this is done you can take a hot bath and relax tonight.
Yummy! It all looks wonderful!
It looks beautiful and delicious! I'm sure the bridal party was appreciative! That truly is a lovely, and loving, gift.
You really have a God given talent. The bride and her groom are very blessed by this gift you have given them. I know that years from now this day will be a wonderful memory for them. Please take care of yourself. I know that you are very tired, you have worked so very hard to put on this remarkable breakfast and lunch for the bride, now please take care of your own health. Your do not want to tax yourself too much.
Look gorgeous and delicous!!!!
what a lovely way to start a wedding day!! How insightful you are, Meredith, and creative.
I'd be interested to hear more about how to make ham biscuits (they're probably so easy there's no recipe, so please fill in this Northerner on how to make them).
I am always impressed by what you can do with food. What a blessing you are to those around you.
May you be blessed as you so generously bless others. Your picture shows an incredible spread! Congratulations.
Absolutely beautiful and looks so tasty!
You are a Champ!
Long time lurker here - but I would love to thank you for all your beautiful, inspiring posts...I could certainly lift my game!
Mmmmm!...Everything looks wonderful! And you did it! Whew!! I also can't wait to see what the lunches looked like. And I would LOVE to see a picture of the bride, etc., if you have any to share. Congratulations on a job well done!
It is lovely. They could've wolfed down some peanut butter crackers and coffee (my sil), but you made this neccessity beautiful for them.
How was the wedding?
What I would do to have been invited to that breakfast...
Incredible! You did an amazing job. Thank you for sharing this whole experience with us :)
I've been following your blog for months maybe even a year now through my google reader. I thought it was about time to say you are inspiring. Thanks for sharing. Happy Frugaling to you....
Simply beautiful, Meredith, both design and deed. I know you ministered to the young woman and her family and friends.
Lovely as always!
