Natalie Mudd’s life was already busy enough as a wife and mother of three, whose family has been devoted to ministry work in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago for more than a decade.

“We feel a huge calling to this area. We have been blessed with so many wonderful relationships all around us. It is my heart to first and foremost see others come to find a relationship with Christ. It is my desire to make a difference in this world while I’m here on earth,” Natalie says.

It was Natalie’s love of others that led her to found Wonderfully Made Events in Chicago, Illinois.  Turning her love of baking, and her childhood love of party planning, into a career designing and catering events that make memories for her clients.

It was her Christmas Mint Party that caught our attention.  The vintage inspired event centers around the beautiful combination of Christmas red with minty green and takes Christmas to a whole new level.

“For this Mint dessert table I used old vintage window panes, pinecones, old painted frames, pieces of wood, vintage sleigh, wreath, ornaments, flag pennants made out of scrapbook paper from Hobby Lobby & twine, decorated tape by Martha Stewart used on drinking jars, presents wrapped in paper from World Market,” Natalie says. “I found all my cake pop sticks, cupcake liners and paper straws at World Market. Ice cream cups and flag topper was bought at TJ Maxx.  Wooden Signs are made by Joanie Ennessy.”
Great events are created in the details and this Mint Party desert buffet is wonderful evidence of that truth.  In keeping with the theme, Natalie has ensured that all of the handmade goodies carry through with the minty idea.  Wonderfully Made Events provided all of the handmade deserts including, Chocolate Fudge Mint Cupcakes, Mint Fudge, Vanilla Mint Chocolate Covered Pretzels, Iced Mint Mocha Fraps, Chocolate Dipped Mint Oreo’s, Mint Chip Ice cream, Pretzel Mint Chocolate Rounds, Mint Fudge Chip Cake Pops, and Mint Vanilla Crème Mousse.
