I am not a big fan of wedding cake. It is usually over priced, there is too much, and I don't think it is that tasty. I do love cupcakes!! (The whole reason I wanted to have an 18th birthday party in high school was to have this great cupcakes from a local baker. Unfortunately, the bakery closed before the party, so no cupcakes :( )
So, for the wedding I wanted cupcakes!
We ordered 200 cupcakes for ~100 guests and I had recycled to-go boxes for the guests to take cupcakes home with them! No leftovers for us to worry about! And then for our anniversary, I would get fresh ones from the bakery.
Here comes the fail - the morning of our 1st anniversary, on our way to my half marathon race, I realized I forgot to get cupcakes! The bakery isn't open on the weekends:( Training for a marathon, just getting back from Europe, starting a new job, and moving combined to distract me from ordering cupcakes! Bad wife!
To redeem myself, we went to Whole Foods and bought what looked like 2 tasty cupcakes. They were not:(
|We used our China for the first time last year!|
One year later and I wasn't going to fail! Yesterday, I went to the bakery and got 2 beautiful cupcakes in flavors we had at the wedding!
What anniversary traditions you follow? I like the traditional anniversary wedding gift guide. Last year G, got me personalized stationary (1st = paper) and this year I got G cotton t-shirts with the #2 of them (2nd = cotton)!ELH
