Baby Shower dessert table: Behind the scenes
June 5, 2014 § 2 Comments
SWEETTABLESCAPES just created a dessert table for a fancy baby shower. The two future dads wanted to go all out for this very special event and celebrate the arrival of their baby girl in grand style.
We started working on Carnival / Fun Fair and the color palette, feminine but fun and colorful: Red, Orange and Bright Pink.
We checked out the venue, the upstairs space of a New-York boutique, and we started planning the details of the display. And then, things changed; the venue was now the parents uptown brownstone and the theme: a Princess’ dreamland. Colors remained the same.
The dessert selection included vanilla, chocolate and lemon-poppy seed cupcakes (with monogram white chocolate toppers and fancy wrappers) , cakepops, our delicious handmade chocolate-covered marshmallows, some chocolate covered strawberries and of course, given the French heritage of one dad, a macaron tower by Laduree (no less!!)There was also a delicious tower of raspberry-flavored caneles by Celine.
and a beautiful buttercream cake from Magnolia Bakery:
Departing guests were handed favors that followed the French tradition with bags filled with colorful dragees (Jordan Almond).
There was a popcorn cart as well as cotton candy cart and the “dessert room” which has a beautiful wall of shelving was decorated with jars filled with pink and orange candy. Sweettablescapes also provided the super fun bright orange and pink candied apples…
Lucky Baby Renee !!
