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!

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.

New Store Front Window Design

Wednesday, July 6th, 2011

Well as many of my blog posts start…”I’ve been meaning to post this for forever”!  I am so in love with my new window design that the talented girls over at Proost Event Design & Planning created for me!  You definitely have to check out their fabulous website and blog as they are quite the talented sisters!

I basically gave them free reign on the backdrop and I love the pops of summery colors they pulled together.  The overall design is so fresh and clean looking…definitely my style!  All my clients love it as much as we do and if you are looking to get pieces created for your party or special day definitely check them out!

My front window is so hard to photograph since there is such bad reflection, but hopefully you can see just how gorgeous it is!

We get lots of requests for Toy Story cakes and I love this next one with the jean and cowboy print pattern.  The badges are so fun too.

For this sweet baby shower cake we pipped on tiny dots to mimic the clothing lines and then hung some baby onsies on them.

Lastly one of my favorite shower cakes I’ve done…I just love the simplicity of it…the buttons, sugar thread, and delicate sugar flower.  I got the chance to make this cake for a high school friend of mine and it was such a pleasure.

I also made some matching button sugar cookies.  We frosted them with royal icing so they tasted yummy and delicious and then I draped a super thin piece of fondant on top to give it the detail and texture it needed.

Smog Shop Wedding

Monday, May 9th, 2011

I absolutely LOVE working with Angle Swanson from Love and Splendor on weddings!  Her clients always have such amazing design and are equally as sweet!  This wedding that we got to do at The Smog Shoppe was so much fun.  We did an eclectic style dessert bar with some natural woodsy elements and then even got to make a crazy groom’s cake too…
