Fresh berries were plated near granola and yogurt. Veggies were served next to store-bought hummus. A cheese plate is easy to assemble. The hostesses offered four cheeses, one hard, one brie, one super creamy, and everyone's favorite, Cowgirl Creamery's Mount Tam. The cheese was set on a large board with two kinds of crackers, sliced bread, dried cranberries, fig jam, and toasted almonds. One of the bride's favorite salads is Comforts Cafe Chinese chicken salad. It was served family style on a large platter. The bride's out-of-town friend sent several large bouquets of beautiful flowers. Another gorgeous floral arrangement. Upon arrival at the house, I was greeted by the wonderful smell of these muffins baking. Delicate egg salad and diced mushroom sandwiches were placed inside a hollowed-out bread bowl. It made for a fun presentation. The bride's favorite flavor of cake is carrot. Naturally they had enough carrot cupcakes for the crowd. These super moist cakes with delicious cream cheese frosting were from Sweet Things. Homemade frittata bites with spinach and sausage were addictive! The view kitchen overlooked a beautiful outdoor patio on a small peninsula of the San Francisco Bay. White wine and sparkling wine were placed on a nearby bar with glasses and lemonade. Red wine, fresh orange juice, and citrus wedges were on another bar. When guests arrived, everyone stacked their presents on a side table.
