{Sweets Table} Chipwrecked Nautical Party

August 13, 2013

Well my little boy turns 2 today.  I cannot believe how fast the last 2 years have gone and how big he’s grown.  We had his birthday party last weekend and we lucked out with some beautiful weather.  He loves all three Alvin & the Chipmuncks movies and we have watched them so many times, I could recite each movie to you word for word.  I decided to have a Nautical  Chipwrecked party and he was over the moon when he saw this amazing cake from Once Upon a Cake.   They also created some delicious cupcakes and sugar cookies too! I added some “live bait” of gummi worms, swedish fish, gold fish and some lifesavers to top off the sweets on the table.  We  rented a Pirate Ship bouncy castle from Jiant Jumpers and it was amazing (and huge!) the kids had so much fun in it.  I highly recommend both Jiant Jumpers and Once Upon a Cake, they both delivered an outstanding product and wonderful customer service.  





{Sweets Table} Kris & Lyndsey’s Wedding

August 12, 2013

Kris & Lyndseys wedding was something out of a fairytale.  Held at the Oasis Centre in Edmonton, the wedding was unbelievably romantic and glamourous.  The bride was an absolute vision in her gorgeous Vera Wang gown and her bridesmaids all wore beautiful long white dresses too!  It was incredibly stylish and I was honoured to be a part of it.  She contacted me 3 weeks before the big day and luckily, I was available that weekend!  I created these one of a kind, handmade, paper flowers for her backdrop.  The entire room was draped in fabric and the flowers hung perfectly from the draping.  We then had lots of yummy candies in her wedding colors along with a few hundred mini cupcakes from Crave.  I am hoping to get some professional photos of her big day and when I do, I will be sure to share them with you!

{Dessert Table} Robby & Kavitas Wedding

June 28, 2013

This is the second table I designed for Robby & Kavitas wedding a few weeks ago.  This Bride and Groom were such a pleasure to work with.  They have so much personality and a great sense of humor (as displayed in their choice of cake topper! ).   They wanted two completely different looks for their candy table (blog post below) and their dessert table.  For their candy table they wanted a fun, bright and colourful display.  For their dessert table, they wanted something completely opposite.   Romantic, whimsical and soft.  I decided to create an 8 foot backdrop made exclusively out of hand made paper flowers. They added so much dimension & softness to this romantic sweets table. I just adore paper flowers and although they are extremely time consuming, they are just beautiful when different styles and colors are mixed together.

The amazing cake and custom sugar cookies were created by Annie from Cake Couture.  The rest of the goodies came from Duchess Bake Shop & Whimsical Cake Studio.  These included macarons, marshmallow, madelines, meringues, chocolate covered oreos, cookies, cupcakes and whoopie pies.  The beautiful dessert tags were created by Pink Polka designs.  Special thanks to Jordan from Atmosphere Event Planning & Design for his keen eye and help.  This wedding was absolutely gorgeous!

{Candy Table} Robby & Kavitas Wedding

June 23, 2013

Chalkboards are all the rage in the wedding world right now and they are such a great modern & whimsical accent.  Robby & Kavita wanted a fun, colourful, modern candy table that would be a complete contrast to their soft, romantic dessert table.  The ten foot chalkboard  I created for the backdrop was a great way to draw attention to the candy table and add some personality.  Adding the couples names & wedding date to the chalkboard was a wonderful way to add a personal detail and the sweet love sayings added a big dose of whimsy.  This candy table was so much fun with tons of crowd favorites such as Gummi Coke Bottles, Skittles, Gummi Bears, and M&M’s to childhood favorites like Pop Rocks, Sour Patch Kids, Ring Pops and Pixi Stix.  There was really something for everyone!  Thanks to Pink Polka Designs for the gorgeous candy tags and Elegant Touches for the pretty linens!

{Dessert Table} Yachimec Auto Group Mardi Gras Holiday Party

December 18, 2012

This Mardi Gras Inspired Dessert Table was created for the Yachimec Auto Group Holiday Party.  Stretching 18 feet long and a spread for 450 people, it was the largest table I have done to date.  The rich Mardi Gras colors of purple, green and gold made for a fun, colorful and glamorous table.  Thanks to Pink Polka Designs for the gorgeous stationary design and Elegant Touches for the rental of the linens and the gorgeous gold candelabras.  The desserts came from a wide assortment of bakeries in the city including Mirabelle Macarons, Duchess Bake Shop, Cake Couture and Wow Factor Desserts.  I also added 8 new cake stands to my rental collection! Mardi Gras Dessert Table15 (1)
