I really like your invitations, and the menu sounds delicious. I once had a recipe for a baked bread pudding made with cherries that I served for a Washington's Birthday party. I haven't been able to find the recipe again, but I imagine you could make a nice rich bread pudding (maybe with croissants) and just fold in cherries. It sure was good.
