scheduled for a 3 pm delivery and confirmed with the venue.
2:45 venue calls, "Where are you? We expected you at 1pm. Guests arrive between 3 and 3:30."
Venue is about 10 - 12 minutes away.
Fortunately it's a floating design. Easy to set up, but has 5 toppers, three of which we have to create on the fly with silk flowers.
And there's a street fair which closed the most direct route.
Answer about 16 minutes in the venue door to out the venue door. They were still setting up the buffet when we left.
Wow Leah_s! That is great!
So what was your stress level when you got that call?
I would have been throwing up from the sheer panic...only Leah could pull this off
you make us proud!!
THAT was fast! I guess you prove the small but mighty theory!
and did you start out with "When did they change the time because MY contract says ......!"
Way to go, Super Caker!
Oh my...I think I just had a heart attack FOR you! SO happy it went smoothly for you!
WOW! Super Caker indeed!
Apparently the venue didn't know who they were talking to. Fabulous.
Very impressive Did they change the time without notifying you?
Who knows? They were certain they told me 1pm. I'm certain they told me 3 pm.
"Alls well that ends well."
You go girl!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What a caker.
Mine today was opposite. Contract said 4pm. Got there and they said "Ummm are you sure you want to set that up? Reception not til 8pm."
Well the cake was VERY heavy and no spoilable fillings, and room had decent a/c so I just set it up...didn't want them moving it around.
Wonder why the lady wanted her cake set up so early?????
