All You Need is Love Pink Dessert Table

So very excited to share my “All you need is love” dessert table with you all today! Created for Occasions Magazine’s Winter Issue, I’ve been waiting so patiently to share this with everyone. Remember the rest of the beautiful photo-shoot? Well this is my favorite part of the shoot, the desserts! I am so honored to have it recently featured on Half Baked, The Cake Blog.

All you need is Love” – Famous words, a beautiful song, and cherished motto. I wanted to put together a romantic dessert table that would capture love. With shades of pink, gold and silver with vintage & glam touches that came together so beautifully. Desserts in pinks, creams and chocolates came together in a delicious way. This stunning dessert table included three perfectly pipped cakes (each with their own icing technique), Pink cake pops with gold and silver details, mini sugar donuts, cupcakes with custom edible fondant toppers, whoopie pies and individual napa valley chocolate cheesecakes, chocolate covered oreos with lace detail, custom heart sugar cookies and of course perfect pink french macarons. These desserts are stunningly displayed on JCT Kitchen’s rustic table accented with a pink runner from I Do Linens and a fun and beautiful tassel garland from The Flair Exchange. Not to mention the gorgeous cake stands from Waiting on Martha & The TomKat Studio Shop.

“All You Need is Love” Engagement Party Inspiration

A few months ago, I got a call from Occasions Magazine requesting a Valentine’s day themed shoot. My first in print full feature! I jumped, squealed and did a little dance. Brainstorming ideas, I decided to go with an Engagement party on Valentine’s Day. What better way to capture love?!  The shoot included tablescape, dessert table {sharing those pics very soon}, a Champagne bar, photo booth, candy favor table & a Love notes for the Bride table.  Here’s my inspiration for the shoot:

“All you need is Love” – Famous words, a beautiful song, and cherished motto. I wanted to put together a engagement party that would capture love. With shades of pink, gold and silver with vintage & glam touches that came together so beautifully.

I’ve been dying to share this with you all. It’s been months and months and I’m so excited to finally share it! This shoot wouldn’t have turned out so beautifully without the help of Mandy Rye from Waiting on Martha. Not only does she have amazing taste and helped with the venue, the serving pieces and set up but she was one of my models. Big huge thank you to my sweet friend Lauren from Lauren Nicole Studios. She is such a talented photographer and I just adore working with her.
