Utterly Engaged Hoedown!

Last month I had the pleasure of doing the dessert bar for Utterly Engaged’s 1 Year Anniversary Hoedown Party!  I had such a great time collaborating on the design and look for the table & overall I think it turned out pretty fun!  Lucia had the idea for the hanging ropes that was inspired from the Ace Hotel set up and instantly I was in love with it!  I also had the great pleasure of working with Summer from Grey Likes Weddings!  She made the whole backdrop come to life & even made me an adorable cake topper!  If you haven’t checked out her fantastic blog definitely stop by!  The lovely florals were done by Megan from Honey & Poppies…as always she created such gorgeous arrangements that complimented the table design so well! Jessica Claire was the main photographer for the party & you can check out all of her fabulous images in the current issue of Utterly Engaged!  Thanks so much Jessica!  Since this was an industry event I was lucky enough to have tons of photographers send me their photos as well so I wanted to post them as well. Check out the links at the bottom for their photography blogs!

Since I got to make the whole menu up myself I wanted to try a lot of new desserts. For the main cake I frosted it with meringue style frosting and torched it so it came out like a toasted smore’s!  The two side cakes were chocolate hazelnut nutella…yummy!

For the treats we made mini smore’s tarts, carrot cake whoopie pies, caramel nut brownies, blueberry crumble pies, my grandma’s caramel nut mix, & chocolate covered rice krispy treats!

Of course I have to give a shout out to the Mustache Mafia since they took home the gold in the BBQ challenge!

And I love this photo I took with my iphone because you can see the fun tumbleweeds in front of the table.
