First Wedding Present!

First Wedding Present!

We received our very first official wedding present yesterday afternoon. A set of these lovely Laguiole steak knives with enamel handles from a dear family friend in Cape Cod.

This is one of my favorite off-the-registry gift standbys. They also make a carving set and cheese set. The little bee symbol, French origin and wood case makes them a real heirloom. If only I could find a source that sells the cake set in the US.

I checked the etiquette and you’re allowed to open the present and send a thank you card now. Of course, no using the presents until after the wedding! Who wants to come over for some steak in November?

    What you need is the Laguiole champagne saber. Now THAT will kick off some festivities.

    if you find a place in France or Switzerland that carries the cake set I could try to get one to you.
