Kerrville has this informal group of wine lovers who get together on the first Friday of each month. Each month is hosted by a different business and it is a wonderful way to showcase whatever you do. CarteWheels hosted last Friday's event and there was a great turn out.

Fall Wedding at Becker Vineyards

Why I LOVE FALL!! We have such fun decorating even the simplest buffets. This is CarteWheel's take on a Market Salad Bar. We used bushel baskets for the vegetables and made signs to look like market signs.
