Lavishly Luxe

Hello Kitty cake pops are all the rage, nothing new there. We were happy to provide them for a client who wanted them for her birthday celebration at the fabulous New Parish in Oakland. But how do we reinvent the wheel? We've done Hello Kitty before, to rave reviews no less. How do we make this Hello Kitty theme feel special, unique, fresh? When all else fails, go glam, and go glam hard. Our client loves pink and gold, and surprisingly it's a great color combination. The quiet, feminine undertones of pink mixed with the bold, opulence, and glitter of gold gave us a new creation that was more than just a sum of it's parts.

The tissue balls gave the table some nice height and visual interest. They're easy to make, once you get the hang of it. Chocolate covered strawberries were requested by the client, and fit nicely with the rest of the table.

The Hello Kitty cake pops were front and center in our tasting cups. The chocolate covered pringles are always a crowd favorite. There's something about the crunch mixed with the salty/sweet tastes that are irresistible. Several other treats in pink and gold added to the luxe appeal.

This overhead view shows the great gold leaf patterned paper along with the custom made table runner.

This table, more so than others, displayed the intricate details and layering of custom printables. There's nothing like a lot of elbow grease to make a small table feel like a million bucks.
