50 Years of Love and Devotion

When your daughter is one of the most talented cake designers in town and you are celebrating your golden anniversary, there is no doubt it will be the best tasting event of all! Laura Jackson of The Flour Garden Memphis invited all of us to work with her on this intimate project and make a memorable occasion for her parents. It was just that. I honestly can say that when Pat and Bud cut the extraordinary (and delicious) five tiered anniversary cake that their daughter created, it made me feel as though I was there the first time 50 years before –¬† and it appeared as if they did as well. What a magic day for the family. Purple is Pat’s favorite color and she is an avid gardener with an entire moss lawn: not a blade of grass! We created floral designs inspired by her lifetime of passion for art, flowers, and family and it was not hard to do considering the Lilac, Helleborus, Frittilaria, and tree blossoms were all in full Spring bloom! The photos and personal items incorporated into the design made us all feel like a part of the past and present love they share. I met two very precious¬† friends and look forward to working and attending their next anniversary party.¬† Congratulations to one of the sweetest couples that is 50 years strong and counting!
