A 40th Birthday in St. Louis!

by Ashley in Recent Events on May 27, 2010

IMG 0615 A 40th Birthday in St. Louis!This past Saturday, Dishy Events was lucky enough to be a part of Jeff Bast’s 40th birthday celebration which took place in Granite City, IL. The party was put together by his lovely girlfriend, Tyra Saunders, and she was amazing as Dishy’s first birthday party client! We were able to help Tyra select a venue as and a few other vendors. And I must say, overall it was a great success!

Unfortunately during the always important picture taking process for the party, I learned a very valuable lesson, one every event or wedding planner should know – don’t drop your camera while trying to take pictures of your work! Duly noted to not fumble and drop my camera in the future! I missed out on some fun pics to share!

Nonetheless, I was able to salvage one great photo of Jeff’s Over the Hill cake put together by SugarBritches Cakery, a great new cake maker located right here in St. Louis. I think Shannon did a great job and I can’t wait to work with her again in the future. She’s anal about her work just like me, and that’s one of the things I love about her!

In case you can’t read the note on the cake, it says “To whom it may concern, I will be out of my office on 5/22/10 at Jeff’s 40th Birthday Party!” - G. Reaper

Love it! Two thumbs up for SugarBritches!

I’m Craving Birthday Cake!

by Ashley in General | Wedding Cake on March 4, 2010

I don’t know about you all but I am a HUGE fan of sweets, and when I say huge fan, I mean HUGE fan! In fact, I just finished off an ice cream cone! :-) Heck, my dentist loves me because I help keep him in business. Despite my dentist’s warnings, I just can’t help myself – when my sweet tooth is a callin’ it must be answered! You wouldn’t just let your phone ring off the hook every time it rang now would you? I think not!

Speaking of sweet tooth, it’s definitely in full effect around birthday time, not just mine but everyone I know too. Whether it’s cupcakes, 3-4 tier cakes, kid’s cakes or sculpture cakes, I take my birthday cake anyway I can get it. Today, I thought I’d highlight a new cake maker in town, satisfying birthday (and wedding) cake needs all over the St. Louis, Missouri area. Her name is Shannon, the company is SugarBritches Cakery and the birthday cakes…well they speak for themselves. If you’re planning a birthday party (or any other kind of party) in or around St. Louis and you’re looking for a unique cake, you MUST give her a shout. I know I plan to!
