Love Is Sweet

"The most dangerous food is wedding cake"~ James Thurber
Dessert Table

One of my best friends is getting married and we've been having lots of fun celebrating!  Fresh off our trip to NOLA for the Bachelorette, we gathered friends and family together for her Bridal Shower this past weekend.  The black and white wedding colors inspired a fun dessert table full of black and white treats!  Each of the bridesmaids contributed confections like:
  • Custom Oreo Cake
  • Almond Bars
  • Brownies
  • Portuguese Egg Custards (the Bride's fave!)
  • Chocolate Dipped Strawberries
  • Chocolate Swirl Cheesecake Bites
  • Black and White Cupcakes
In order to display the desserts we used a combination of tiered stands and boxes covered in pretty coordinating wrapping paper. The same wrapping paper was used to make a decorative paper rosette garland strung with tulle ribbon.  See this previous post for how to make the rosettes.  Dessert labels and other signs for the shower were printed and mounted to die cut scalloped shapes from Paper Presentation - a wonderful DIY stationary supply store in NYC with an online shop!

Another sweet way to tie in the black and white theme and provide a fun activity was an M&M guessing game!

Guessing Game

Instead of a guest book or traditional games, we provided the guests with tags on string to fill out wishes and advice for the new married couple.  The tags (also from Paper Presentation) were then hung on a live potted "Wishing Tree" to display at the shower and later taken home by the Bride.

The guests loved it and really got creative with their words of wisdom and the Bride was touched by all of the sweet thoughts!
