"I really don't think they'll be that big of a deal," Tredessa said at about 10:30 pm one busy Friday night about the fact that she wanted to put a couple of "edible bouquets" together for the next day. You've been seeing them on TV and in all the magazines as THE new thing to send to people you love. The problem is, theirs cost about $89.99 and up! Tredessa did very lush, full bouquest for 2 different celebrations for less than $30 in about a half hour – and her first time out! She is looking forward to adding chocolate-dipped strawberries and other fancy additions.
She can't cook yet, but she is amazing with fruit and skewers!
I love that you are fearless on stuff like this, Dessa. Try to see cooking the same way! Or – marry a good cook!…Love, mom (aka Jeanie)
NOTE TO SELF: Let the girls do their thing everytime they want to. Life is getting really easy!

Actually the initial bouquet took me about 2 hours (incl. cleanup and a quick First Aid trip when I sliced my finger open), which wasn't bad considering I'd never done one before. I thought it would take me a lot longer. It was very therapeutic and fun though. The second bouquet took me about 5 minutes because all of the prep work had been done. Yes, if only I could approach cooking with the same tenacity. When I don't have the pressure of a deadling hanging over me, I don't work too well, I guess:) Mom, how could you OUT me on the cooking thing?
What's a deadling? hehee;o)
They were beautiful Tredessa! I'll have to give it a try. They would make great birthday gifts!
The food looks beautiful but my daughter in the background looks even more beautiful. I miss her.
Yes, the fruit bouquet was stinkin cool…I still have yet to check if you ruined my cookie cutter! :)
