3 Looks for a Summer Wedding

It seems not too long ago when I shared three looks to wear to a spring wedding. But that season has come and gone so quickly, and summer is upon us. And it is the biggest season of the year for weddings, so chances are you have a few invites and may be wondering what to wear. It's pretty easy to figure out summer wedding attire if you keep the location in mind.

Of course you have the invite to start with as well. It should say "Black Tie Attire" or "Black Tie Optional" or perhaps something like "Formal Beach Attire," and it will have the ceremony time. Generally indoor evening weddings call for more formal attire than outdoor afternoon weddings.

Easy Cranberry Spice Tea Cake


Warning: Boxed cake mix is an "ingredient" in this recipe. That is in part what makes it easy. During the busy holidays, it's necessary to have some easy dishes, especially for entertaining! Though if you want to make this 100% from scratch, start with a classic spice cake recipe. If you're also the type to turn your nose up at canned cranberry sauce, here is a recipe for jellied cranberry sauce from scratch.

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 pkg. moist spice-cake mix
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 c milk
  • 1/3 c veg oil or melted butter
  • 1 can (1 lb.) Ocean Spray whole cranberry sauce
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • dash of nutmeg (optional)

Prepare the boxed cake mix according to directions then add in the cranberry sauce and extra cinnamon and nutmeg until thoroughly combined, and gently fold in the fresh cranberries. *If making the cake from scratch, add the cranberry sauce to the wet mixture before combining with dry ingredients, and gently fold in cranberries after all other ingredients have been combined.


Bake at 350 (cupcakes - about 20-25 min, loaf pan  40-45  min). I made mine in loaf pans to make a tea cake and topped it of with cream cheese frosting. Garnish with fresh sage leaves and cranberries.
