Chanel Photoshoot

Monday, May 24th, 2010

I was seriously blown away when I first saw these images that Jasmine Star took at a recent photoshoot I did with a bunch of FABULOUS ladies from the wedding industry.  The lovely Jaclyne of Heavenly Blooms asked me to be a part of the shoot and I was so excited once I heard the design for it.  She planned a flawless photoshoot along with the help from the talented Amanda from In the Now.  So many wonderful vendors came together to make this photoshoot such a gorgeous experience…thanks for letting me be a small part of it!  The look for the day was a Chanel inspired bridal shower & I’m sure it won’t disappoint you! To check out more design details about the shoot check out our post on Style Me Pretty!

Recently I have had the pleasure of doing a lot of amazing photoshoots, but sadly sometimes I can squeeze it all in, so when they asked it I could do a mini dessert bar as well as the cake I unfortunately had to pass since I already was booked up that week.  I was so happy when I heard that Jay’s Catering was going to do the dessert bar though and I have to say that they knocked it out of the park!  Their macaroon tower & Parisian style desserts were so dreamy!

For the cake my sister and I wanted to mimic the style of old mosser glass cake stands & platters and accented it with jewels & buttons inspired by Chanel.  I also created a gorgeous pink sugar flower garden rose for the top of the cake, but sadly it got broken on delivery, so instead we placed ruffle flowers at the top of the cake. Overall I still really liked how the cake turned out, but it was a little sad to have my flower I worked so hard on not get photographed.

Three Wonderful Weddings!

Thursday, May 20th, 2010

Wedding season is in full swing here at Sweet & Saucy Shop!  As I’m typing this post I can’t believe that this upcoming weekend I actually have 8 weddings!!!  I remember the days when one wedding a weekend was a lot for me…too funny how times have changed!  My team has grown and so have the number of weddings we can take on each weekend.  We still love working with each individual couple and seeing their wedding come to life & being a party of their sweet celebration!  These next 3 weddings were such a pleasure to be a part of and I’m so happy to be sharing them with you!  First up is a wedding that I had the pleasure of working with the AMAZING Jesi Haack again!  I truly love that lady and am so blessed to work with her a lot.  Her clients are always such a pleasure to work with and this time was no different.  Beth and Jon wanted a unique wedding with lots of organic, rustic touches to it.  We decided to do a pistachio covered cake with a large fresh kale flower accent.  We also created a mini dessert bar with lots of goodies!

Jesi and I wanted the cake to stand alone this time and have it’s own space so we decided to use one of Jesi’s dressers and fill it full of moss…LOVED how it turned out!  I have to thank Jesi’s fabulous husband Ryan Haack for supplying me with some great shots of the cake & mini dessert bar.  I can always count on him for perfect photos of my treats!

Wedding Jan 22-11

This wedding I actually worked on quite a while ago, but am finally now getting the chance to blog it!  I had to take a ferry boat over to Catalina Island for this wedding, but it was worth it!  The bride made a lovely backdrop for the dessert table and really wanted to incorporate the Spanish tiles that are all over Catalina Island in her wedding so we tried pulling them into the dessert bar on the cake and sugar cookies!

For the cake we also did sugar flower orchids!

This last wedding was at the beautiful Surf & Sand Hotel in Laguna Beach.  Devon & Shariff were dream clients to work with and I’m so happy I was apart of their special day.  Since it was near the ocean we went with a nautical theme, but wanted to modernize it a little bit.  I got inspiration for the cake from a brooch that was at Anthropologie and then recreated it in sugar!  I have to thank the lovely Lauren Hillary for these gorgeous photos!

Woodland Themed 1st Birthday Party

Sunday, May 16th, 2010

I love when I get to work with creative clients!  Sarah is a perfect example of a client that just blows my mind and gets me so excited about making desserts!  She wanted to make her son, Finn’s, 1st birthday party fabulous and boy did she!  She made all the design pieces herself and truly amazed me with her creativity and talent…can you say future party planner or what!?!?

Sarah wanted to create a “Woodland” style look for the party and so we made the desserts accordingly.  Sarah not only did all the decorating for the party, but she even made some of the desserts too!  This is seriously one of the cutest kid’s birthday parties I have ever seen and I was so blessed to be a part of it!  Thanks Sarah!  And here is the amazing little family!

For the desserts we made owl cookies, mini key lime pies, mini candy bar cupcakes, rustic pies and other tasty treats!  Sarah wanted us to recreate a little deer for the cupcake that matched the one on her invitations and I have to say it turned out adorable!

Adorable 1st Birthday Party

Wednesday, May 12th, 2010

Well I am starting to be a pathetic blogger again, so my apologies!  I wanted to get some fun eye candy up even though I am about to fall asleep at the computer! These adorable photos were taken at a 1st birthday party I had the pleasure of doing the desserts for.  She wanted the party to have a girlie, vintage feel to it and I think it came out gorgeous!

IMG_7494.JPG

We decided to do a center cake with edible lace and a large pink peony sugar flower.

Audrey’s mom made all the adorable details for the party, like the amazing backdrop, frames, flowers etc.  She got a lot of inspiration from a first birthday that I had the pleasure of doing with Sarah K. Chen, Linda Ly, & Carissa from JL Designs.
