Anthropologie + Oh Joy

Thursday, September 13th, 2012

If you would of asked me a couple years back if I ever thought I would be doing desserts for Anthropologie and Oh Joy I would’ve said “No way”…well guess what?!?  I was lucky enough to be a part of such a fun event that was held at Anthropologie and you bet I was smiling all night long!  Joy, from Oh Joy, was the main attraction for their new line of Petite clothing and it was so fun finally getting to meet her in person!

The lovely Bonnie Tsang took that fabulous photo of Joy…love her work!  The event was such a success and for anyone that knows me I am obsessed with Anthropologie and shop there now-stop, so you know I enjoyed every minute!

I can’t thank Kristin, from Kristin Eldridge Photography, enough for these gorgeous photos of my desserts!  She seriously always blows me away when she photographs my stuff…love every photo!

 

For the desserts we decided to do some crowd pleasers and set them out on some of my favorite stands…vintage peach & clear glass, jadeite and milk stands!  First up always a popular one the mini key lime pies!

Mini cheesecakes with fresh raspberries and salted caramel french macarons.

Strawberry french macarons…

Our decadent brownies cut into triangles for a fun presentation.

Our #1 selling cupcake in Newport Beach…S’mores!

We had such a great time at this event!  Thanks so much for stopping by the blog!

I think this first photo describes exactly how I feel about this birthday party!  I really am so blown away every time one of my favorite customers, Sarah, throws a birthday party for her children.  She has such a gift for party planning and crafting that it should be her full time job!  All of the amazing details she dreamt up below for her son Finn and daughter Scarlett’s birthday party will for sure knock your socks off…enjoy!

I think every child should have a picture on a pony…I remember always loving looking at my photo of myself riding on a pony…too much fun!

Sarah basically dreamt up the dessert station and cakes all herself and just placed the order with us :)  I love the rentals that she chose to rent from us…the tin ones are new that we got in and I think they fit perfectly with this party!  The other two stands I made from spray painted candle sticks and flea market antique plates.

I have gotten to help throw two baby showers for my Jesi Haack within these past 2 year and boy did she go all out for my shower.  She designed the entire headband making station…what an amazing idea is that and also created the ruffle backdrops for the dessert bar and drink station!

Of course I had to get my hands in on the shower a little bit once I saw the adorable invitation design, so I designed this cake after the invitation and thought up some cute new twists on mini desserts for my little blake!  Kyong & Jenna made the cake for me and all the girls at the bakery made my desserts look so great…I have such a great team!

Monopoly Themed 1st Birthday Party

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

I had the pleasure of being a part of Jina Park, from Plush Little Baby, little son Brendan’s 1st birthday party!  Jina pulled out all the stops to make Brendan’s birthday party one to remember!  Vanessa from Alchemy Events came alongside Jina and helped her pull off this special day.  The party theme was all around the Monopoly game and I have to say that they didn’t leave any detail undone.  The special day was held at the London Hotel in West Hollywood and I was so excited to see the gorgeous photos of how the whole day came together!  Corbin of Corbin Gurkin Photography captured the day perfectly!

I was so in awe when I first saw the photos from this wedding that I got to be a part of over on Ruffled’s Blog…the photos that Kelty from Steep Street took were simply gorgeous!  I also love getting to work with Nozza Studios whenever I get a chance; they did a wonderful job pulling the entire design together.
