#TipfulTuesday: Saying Thank You!

I just love the saying: “Gratitude is the most exquisite form of courtesy”. Even the sentence is pretty.

Here’s a quick tip: SEND.A.THANK.YOU.NOTE. Every once in a while – bring out your pretty stationary and put that pretty pen to work. It takes only a few moments and creates a lasting impression.

Did someone go above and beyond and you would like to say a little more than a hand written note? Here are some of our favorite “Sussies” (this means a little something, brought to you by our great friends a Creme de la Creme Cake Company):

  1. Pretty Perfect Packages – adorable customizable thank you packages. Bonus points: you’re shopping local!
  2. Yellibelly Chocolate – because who doesn’t like chocolate?!
  3. Dandelion Cheesecakes – they deliver their tinies (bite-size) or large cheesecakes all over Dallas Fort-Worth plus they ship nationwide!
  4. Tiff’s Treats – coooookkkkkkiiiieeeees. Warm, warm cookies (and milk).
  5. Customizable stationary – so eventually they can thank you back.
  6. Favorite Food – do you know they have a favorite food or are from a certain area? If so, do a little bit of research and send them something from there.

We hope these ideas have given you a little inspiration for gratitude. Follow us on Facebook @SarabethEvents or Instagram @SarabethEvents.

#TipfulTuesday: Anniversary Cake, What To Do With It?

Sweetest tip to date is what to do with your anniversary cake?

One of our favorite elements (not to mention tastiest) of the big day is the wedding cake! Its one of the first appointments we enjoy setting up once engaged and one tasting is just never enough!

We look forward to bringing a vision of how we want it to look and taste to even what cake stand works just perfect and linen compliments the sweet confection! Of course day of we enjoy that first cut as husband and wife and the task of feeding each other but do we ever give much thought into what happens after with our anniversary tier?

Tradition tells us to eat a slice of your cake on our first anniversary as it is known as a good omen for your marriage. But here are few things to keep in mind when enjoying a year later.

Wrap Well! Use a plastic wrap to layer the cake a couple of times with a final layer or two of aluminum foil. To seal tightly, consider using a freezer bag over all your wrappings. Don’t forget to mark it as well so it doesn’t get confused for anything else in your freezer.

Divide and Eat! We love advising our couples that just can’t wait a year to enjoy a slice each month! Wrap 12 individual slices ready to go. Each month share a slice with your loved one.

Fresh vs Frozen! Many bakeries now offer a fresh anniversary cake one year later or are happy to recreate your top tier if you didn’t want to save the original. Also don’t hesitate to ask if different types of cake store better than another so you can decide if you want to freeze or come back for a fresh topper!

No matter how you choose to enjoy your cake, it will certainly be a sweet moment to relive your wedding day! Take the time to pop a bottle of bubbly and open up the wedding album to remember your first memories as husband and wife!!

We would love to hear all about how tasting your anniversary cake after a year was? Let us know on Facebook @SarabethEvents or Instagram @SarabethEvents.

This Bride wanted a little twist on your standard black & white wedding. So on the head table we did a black & white stripe linen to spice it up a bit.

Our fabulous bride was in LOVE with her monogram, so why not carry it throughout your wedding as well. This simple touch was places on the programs, menus, the dance floor, and even her specially made corn hole board and beanbags.
