Our posts have dried out a bit this past week…SWEETTABLESCAPES was very busy preparing a Bridal Shower dessert table.
Doilies, lace, pearls, pale pink, white and ivory were all on the “must -have” list and we created a long display (it had to feed about 100 people) with sterling silver serving pieces, white and crystal cake stands and all sorts of adorable containers for the Jordan almonds and gumballs!! Four small flower arrangements and a taller one matching the centerpieces were also incorporated to embellish and add that beautiful, organic touch that only fresh flowers can bring. Flowers by Laurie at Laurelwood Designs.
The desserts included Linzer tarts, Mini Raspberry and Almond Macarons, (the former filled with a White Chocolate and Raspberry ganache and the latter with a Vanilla Butttercream) as well as cake pops, vanilla cupcakes and Kourabiedes (Greek almond cookies made by the mother of the bride).
Each dessert is labeled with a stylish “lacy and pearly” sign…
We also created a small favor with the initials of the bride and groom : “J heart N” for each place setting..
and last but not least, a gorgeous cake provided by “A little Cake/ Le Petit Gateau” Bakery in Parkridge, NJ
