Opening the doors in greeting at Riverwood Church’s all women candlelight dessert were men in tuxedos who would also be our servers. With exquisite manners, my coat was taken by a gentlemen to be hung up. When entering further into the church, men sang christmas carols and served water, coffee, or a fruit punch. With my punch in hand, my mom and I searched for a place to sit which was difficult because we hadn’t had our seats reserved. As a result, we found that the seating was very unorganized because no one knew how many people were at their table. Although this was slightly inconvenient since we were unsure of where our seats were, all thoughts of contempt were forgotten when we found our chairs and had our orders taken.

Eight overwhelmingly delicious options circulated throughout the room making it almost impossible to decide on an option. The more healthier options included a fresh fruit plate, white walnut cake, and a Boston creme crepe, all of which I decided not to try because I was not there to eat healthy. Tempting me to try them were the chocolate mousse, carrot cake with a cheesecake frosting, creme brulee, and the decadent chocolate cake, however, I decided to get my personal favorite, which I get every year, the New York Cheesecake. It did not disappoint.  

Decorating the tables were beautiful white, blue, and silver centerpieces strung elegantly with lights. Candles adorning the tables created a warm feeling as we ate our desserts and then listened to Sara Renner and the Elements perform a number of christmas tunes with a jazzy twist. Last year a band in kilts with violins danced around the stage and next year I can’t even imagine what other fun performances are waiting in store for us. However, the desserts are definitely what I am most looking forward to.
