Well as most of you know my little Blake has arrived and I am SO in love with her!  I am now SO excited to share  my baby shower that was filled with so much love from all my girlfriends!  I was also lucky enough to have Jenn from Hostess with the Mostess feature my shower today as well on her blog…you can check out her amazing post here!

These last two years I have had the great pleasure to throw lots of baby showers for my girlfriends, specifically those in the wedding industry, and I have loved every minute of it…well, my turn came around and my sweet friends threw me the most gorgeous baby shower EVER!  I was so blessed the entire day and loved every second of it!  Karrie & Elizabeth, from Posh Paperie, designed me the most dreamy invitations a girl could ask for.  Karrie did so much work for my shower and I love her tons!

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!

Jesi’s Baby Shower…Her Favorite Work of Art

Monday, March 12th, 2012

Hopefully you haven’t gotten tired of my baby shower posts yet because this is quite the cute one!  One of my best girlfriends, Jesi from Jesi Haack Design, just had her third little one and this time she had an adorable little girl…River June!  I am so excited for little Blake and River to become best of friends!

I had the joy of hosting Jesi’s baby shower for little River at my house along with the help of Carissa, from JL Designs who did all the florals and yarn backdrop, Carlie from Gabriel Ryan Photography who took the fabulous photos and also crafted up a ton of yarn goodies, Amber from Pitbulls & Posies did the most amazing invitations and paper design, and Courtney from Joyful Joyful who also helped us craft too!

All of us girls loved the saying “You’re my favorite work of art” and we thought it was a perfect theme for Jesi’s shower since she is the ultimate wedding designer and crafter extraordinaire :)  We loved the idea of using yarn throughout the shower and I have to say I think it turned out pretty darn cute!

We had a craft all set to go, but to be honest we skipped it in the end because all of us ladies were too lazy to do it :)

For the dessert bar and cake I definitely wanted to stick to the color scheme and incorporate the yarn!  We did a amber/yellow ombre buttercream cake and then accented it with yarn balls that Carlie made for me.

Our mini mason jar desserts have been a big crowd pleaser at parties and weddings recently so I thought I would do them again and just attach the spoons with yarn.

For the mini red velvet cupcakes we added a tiny purple fondant yarn knot to them for a fun accent.

Carissa’s Space Invader Baby Shower

Thursday, September 29th, 2011

I am so excited to share this next baby shower with you since it is for one of my sweet wedding girlfriend’s, Carissa of JL Designs!  I am beyond happy for Carissa and Brian as they start this next chapter in their lives and to celebrate we did an over-the-top baby shower for them!  Carissa is having a little boy and loved the idea of a space invader themed shower so that is just what we gave her.  I teamed up with a bunch of my talented wedding friends to put the shower together and you can check them all out at the end of the post!

Up first the dessert bar!  We created robot cake pops, cupcakes with robot toppers, “asteroids” (white chocolate dipped donut holes), “flying saucers” (custom sugar cookies), and Kyong did a great Space Invader themed cake.

Goodies Galore!

Wednesday, October 21st, 2009

Well get ready for another random post full of lots of photos!  After a couple weeks at the shop I always have plenty of random orders that I photography (with my new camera of course!), so I thought today would be a good day to show them off! Hope you enjoy!

First up an adorable communion cake I did for a little girl.  I love how the clouds turned out! We used an edible frosting sheet to print the angels and verse and then piped a pearl border around it.

Since the clouds were just too much fun I thought I would show a quick tutorial on how we made them.  First roll random size balls of fondant and stick them together with a little dab of water or egg whites.  Then roll a thin sheet of fondant and cover the balls.  Next sculpt around the balls to form one large cloud.  And finally I airbrushed the whole cake with pearl luster dust to give it a shimmer.

Next we did a gorgeous homespun style cake and cupcakes for the sweetest bride! They LOVED our red velvet, so they got a small two tier cake and lots of yummy cupcakes for their guests.  I love when my clients are so much fun to work with!  I also had to snap some photos of the beautiful flowers they had…I love the rustic, wildflower look!

Another fun cake I got to make recently was a Lego style cake for a cute little boy who turned 4 years old!  They wanted a little Lego firefighter on the cake as well, so I sculpted one for them.  I thought it would be fun to incorporate the Lego style with the wording too, so Tim designed the graphics for his name and age…I thought they turned out great!

We love doing custom orders too, so these next photos are some special orders we did for our clients.  First up are some custom decorated cake lollipops for a recent baby shower.

IMG_2296.JPG

Next we did some logo style brownies for a recent birthday party.

IMG_2388.JPG

I love when our clients come to us with fun ideas!  Our client wanted to surprise her boyfriend for his birthday with custom cupcakes that had his face on it…how great are these!

Another fun surprise was when I was asked by Tiffany’s in South Coast Plaza to make a cake for one of their client’s anniversary.  They wanted lots of sugar peonies and pearls!

Lincoln’s Baby Shower

Thursday, October 1st, 2009

Well, when my sweet friends Gabriel & Carlie, who are also the fabulous photography team behind Gabriel Ryan Photography, asked me if I could help out with some sweet treats for their baby shower I jumped at the chance!  Not only are they the sweetest couple ever, but some of the most talented and amazingly creative too!  They also recruited Jesi Haack, from Jesi Haack Weddings, and Carissa, from JL Designs, to help out with the design and florals too…how could I ever turn down that dream team opportunity!  Those two ladies surprise me every time with their fresh, new ideas…  

Little Lincoln’s day was one for the books, the style, creativeness, and love behind this event is clearly evident in the photos to come!  Everyone added their special touch to the day and it turned out perfect!  I am so excited for Carlie and Gabriel and blessed to have them, and soon baby Lincoln, in my life!  Another fun perk of the day was that I got to use my NEW CAMERA!  I have basically been wanting a professional camera for 4 years now and recently was able to get one for my birthday…I have been ADDICTED ever since!  I even bought a new purse so my new little baby would be able to go everywhere with me.  Gabriel was kind enough to go with me camera shopping and boy was I happy!  I got a Canon 50D, a 50mm lens, and a 28-135mm lens. Of course Gabriel’s fabulous photos outshine mine by a million degrees, but I thought I would include some of my detail shots for the heck of it!  I hope you enjoy the eye candy!

I can’t say enough about all the details that were not left undone.  I believe that the most important part of any event are the personal touches and this shower had more than I can count…oh by the way, how cute is the mother-to-be!!!
