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.
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!

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!
I am so behind on my blogging! I have been so busy with my gorgeous summer weddings that I haven’t had a moment to get all of the photos posted here on the blog. I quickly wanted to share a few images from some of my recent dessert tables while I get my act in gear and get blogging! Thank goodness for the ease of Instagram! Stay posted for more photos in the weeks to come!
First up, Jenny & Hon’s Sweets table complete with 260 mini cupcakes and tons of pink, purple, gold and white candy. The gold frames added some gorgeous glamour to the table!!
And last but certainly not least, Robby & Kavitas Candy table which had well over 200 pounds of candy on it! I also made the chalkboard backdrop which turned out to be the highlight of the table. Stay tuned!

Congratulations on your big day!
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!
