The Last 4 Days

My Mom and I have a catering business called Savalyns Catering. Yes, I know that it is an odd name. It is a combination of my nieces names, Savannah and Madelyn. We did a catering yesterday for a great lady that I have worked with for the last 5 years. The wedding was so pretty and the couple have such a great story.

We had never done a reception like this before. We set up all of the food on cake plates on each of the tables. The guests then could help themselves at their table.

It took me 3 days to bake the cookies for the wedding...definitely not a task that I want to do on a daily basis. :-) I spent one day making the sugar cookie dough and putting in the fridge to set up. I then baked all of the Mexican Wedding cookies and half of the sugar cookies on the 2nd day. On the third day I baked the rest of the sugar cookies. Whew...
