Havana Nights

Welcome to Havana Nights! Our fabulous clients Trey and Paul wanted us to create a dessert table based on the ad and logo for their event. When we looked at this design it made us think of old Havana. We wanted to take that concept and make it hip and chic. A little sparkle sand here a little bit of white palm branches there and you have Havana with a taste of Miami nightclub!

Everyone had a favorite dessert. Our clients adored the vanilla cake pops with cream cheese frosting. After the DJ sampled all the treats, the peanut butter pretzels were hands down his favorite.

Great care was taken in recreating our client's company's logo. We placed it on the mini cupcakes, red velvet cake pops, and on the labels.

These Casablanca lilies lit up in the coral colored submersible lights.

Who can resist the sand and palm leaves? If there weren't food on it, we'd be tempted to sink our feet into it.

Crunchy, candy coated cake pops!

For the Glitter of it all

Samm's realeasing a new album and wanted us to put together a couple of tables for her VIP area. Samm loves anything that shimmers and shines. Let's face it, we all do.

Red velvet cupcakes and cake pops with vanilla and cream cheese cupcakes and cake pops.

Chocolate covered pringles were the sleeper hit. Guests weren't sure about the unconventional treat, but soon enough they were coming back for seconds.

The white stargazer lilies and orchids reflected the blue light fixtures inside the crystal water vases.

Chevron striped cake pops!

The lady of the evening, Samm! Get her new album "See it My Way".

All that Glitters

Last night was Samm's shining moment. She has a new album, "See it My Way" and put on a great show last night at The New Parish in Oakland. It was our pleasure to create a VIP dessert destination. Here's your sneak peak.

A Berry Sweet Farewell

We were asked to put together a dessert table for Carol who was retiring after a long career with a local branch of a bank. She had been with the bank for 32 years! We definitely wanted to make her final day feel special and worthy of her dedication.

The Strawberry Fields theme was a fun and cheery way to celebrate Carol.  To allow the strong berry red color to shine, we went with a cool mint green and a rustic craft paper brown. Jennifer went to work on creating her fabulous rosettes, and Jeff made the picnic style pennant banner with country style patterns that read "A Sweet Farewell".

Guests could not believe that the strawberries sticking out of the green crates were not the real thing. Jennifer crafted these mouthwatering cakepops with strawberry cake, cream cheese frosting, and candy coating, complete with a sour straw stem. The chocolate cupcakes were made even more devine with red and mint green wrappers. The real berries were all picked fresh from local farms, just in case you wanted to know.

Jeff created the "Parting is such Sweet Sorrow" invitation that went out to the 80+ coworkers that wished Carol the best, now that she can spend her summer days relaxing by the pool.

 All the best Carol and thank you for letting us be a part of your day!

Send in the Clowns

We are excited to present pictures of a carnival party we did this weekend. We worked with a wonderful client who owns a daycare. She wanted to transform her backyard into a carnival for a day of fun for the daycare kids and their parents. We used traditional carnival colors and carried them throughout the decor.

The whimsical dessert table was the centerpiece of the event. Jennifer created cupcakes topped with marshmallows cut to look like little buckets of popcorn. Clown cake pops were complimented by theme color cake pops for a lovely display. Jennifer custom dyed candy melts to get just the right turquoise coating for the cake pops. Jeff created the amazing large "Welcome to the Carnival" sign on the dessert table backdrop as well as the mini pennant hanging on striped straws between two cupcakes.

Custom sewn carnival game backdrops added splashes of color to the backyard. Striped fabric in the color theme wasn't readily available so we custom striped the fabric from solid pieces to ensure the color theme stayed true. Jeff designed beautiful game signs for each booth.

Kids enjoyed a caricature artist and played games with a clown on stilts.Guests indulged in cotton candy and popcorn from nostalgic machines.

At the prize table we gathered like prizes together in mason jars to create an old fashioned carnival feel. Flags on striped straws in the mason jars told the kids the ticket value of each prize.

One guest commented that the only thing missing was a roller coaster! Many thanks to our client Lori for allowing us to create this wonderful day!
