It has taken me awhile to get this last blog up, because I simply don’t know how to express how happy I am with the final results of our bakery! This project was a year in the planning, and to finally see it all come together was almost unreal.
We had our opening party on April 10th, but it didn’t all come together for me until that morning. We had been working on the last little details for weeks, trying to make everything look finished, but for some reason, it wasn’t until all of the decorations (plants, pillows, dummy cakes) were in place that morning and the counter top was full of sweets, that it really looked finished. I had been incredibly sick the night before the party, but as I was watching everything come together that morning, I couldn’t stop myself from running around to help get it all done!
I don’t even know how to put into words how the final results of our bakery made me feel. I had been staring at a sketch from Domestic Identity for months, trying to visualize how it would look in real life, and the final results were better than I could have ever imagined! It was exactly what I wanted but better. We now have a cozy tasting table to make our couples feel special and to give them a “chef’s table” experience with a window looking right into our kitchen, our decoration is modern yet chic, and our countertop was created custom just for us. It was such a proud moment and also a moment of such relief that everything we had worked for came together so well, and that we could now just enjoy the place and use it for what we had been envisioning for so long!
It was so great to have the opening party that same day that our bakery finally felt complete, because all of our months of stress and hard work were instantly put behind us. I was so happy when our guests walked through our doors and just had their mouths hanging open. It was truly incredible to see and hear people’s reactions to our new space. Working in the wedding industry, we work with a lot of people who have an eye for detail, and to be able to impress them with our new bakery, made me feel like all of the hard work was worth it!
We were so grateful to everyone who came to celebrate with us, the turnout was more than we were expecting! We had such a wonderful time showing our new bakery to everyone and we couldn’t believe how many people came out to support us. I say it all the time, but I am so amazed and so grateful for all of the friends we have made since we’ve opened our company and for all of the encouragement and support that we constantly get. It has been an incredible journey and I am so curious what we will be able to accomplish with our new space!
