Planning a Partaaay?!

Last night my brother and I hosted a 50th Anniversary party for our parents.  We could not have done it without some good resources locally here in NW Houston and on-line.

The first one being our dear friend, Chef Betty Jean Cotton.

She catered delicious soulful cooking. She typically makes meals for families, on a weekly basis, who lead busy lives. She doesn’t have a web site but her email is For a family style menu she can cook all meats and fish, baked, blackened or roasted.  She also has pasta dishes and a plethora of sides. Her desserts include cobblers, tea cakes and “Church Tea.”  I highly recommend her for catering or just a home cooked meal on those busy nights.

Do you need fresh flowers? An on-line resource my sister-in-law, Kim, used to make fresh flower arrangements is Flowers and Freshness.  You can order flowers in bulk and make your own arrangements.

Here’s one of her lovely arrangements among my lovely bouquet of friends.

She purchased the containers for half price at Hobby Lobby. The cost was much cheaper than using a florist.

And my last resource, which is becoming a favorite for cakes is Frosted Bakery.  I’ve now used them for two cakes. My parents anniversary cake.

And my nieces lingerie shower cake. Ahem.

Both cakes flavors were Italian Cream Cake with butter icing. And both cakes were delicious. Frosted Bakery often has a coupon on their site or in local flyers as well.

Hope you enjoyed the partaaay resources!
