Cupcakes For A Cause

56806657_2261129590795829_1075094970626473984_nIntroducing THE perfect dessert treat for your celebration. Sarah Bellum’s Bakery & Workshop offers delectable sweet and savory cupcakes that look adorable and taste amazing. Even better, they do it with a purpose. Since opening in SW Portland six months ago, the not-for-profit bakery has provided return-to-work opportunities for adults with acquired brain injury. Small but mighty, the team at Sarah Bellum’s hopes to raise awareness about brain injury while delivering a scrumptious product. The ingenious name – a nod to the cerebellum in the brain – will give you some idea of the heart and humor at work here. With advance notice, the bakery can delivery a variety of mini or full sized cupcakes for your wedding shower, rehearsal dinner, celebration of life and receptions of all sizes. Check out the full range of flavors on their menu page. It’s hard to pick favorites but the cheddar chive savory is always a hit, as is the salted caramel. And the lemon-blueberry. And the chocolate-raspberry. And … okay you get the idea. Organic, bargain priced, delicious, gluten-free/vegan options and all for a fabulous cause. This is a love story that everyone can celebrate. TIP: You can also send guests home with a treat for fido – exclusive PUPcake gourmet dog treats.

Sharing the Love

PhotoGrid_1513828036627.jpgI love getting holiday greetings from my couples. The love glows right through the envelope! It makes that special day snap right back in view along with all the smiles and sweetness of the occasion. Whether its newlyweds celebrating their first Christmas as husband and wife, or couples marking their fifth – it’s wonderful to be able to share in the love again. I’m also happy to see the tradition of snail mail greetings is alive and well. Keep those much appreciated cards coming all you lovely Mr. & Mrs’s. Note: Featured card just arrived from Nona and Jeromie Hunter. Married in Portland in 2016 and now residing in Seattle where their busy schedule includes Nona completing nursing school, Jeromie working full time and still managing to get his pilot’s license and both surviving the throws of renovating a condo. Merry Christmas, Sweeties!
