Italian Dessert Table

Styling an Italian Dessert Table

Children’s parties often come with themes: Lego, Mermaid, Dinosaur, Disney’s Tangled (3 years in a row!). But as we get older, this time-honored childhood tradition fads away.

You wouldn’t think that a food blogger should have any expertise in weddings, but I constantly find myself fielding questions and offering advice to my readership. At first I was surprised and then I came to a realization: food and drinks are one of the biggest decisions couples make when planning their weddings.
