Sweet Guest Dessert Feature from Elizabeth Messina

My dear friend and famed photographer Elizabeth Messina of Kiss the Groom and Elizabeth Messina shared with me these precious photos of her daughter Mykela’s birthday.  Elizabeth emailed me when she figuring out what to bake and told me she was wondering what I would do. Well, goodness, Elizabeth did not need my help at all!   Besides Elizabeth’s incredible photography and gorgeous styling, those desserts look just incredibly, well…sweet.  Sifting through all of Elizabeth’s photos was the hardest part of doing this post.  It was so hard to decide which to use!  Not to mention I did want to take a bite out of that munchkin birthday cake!  I love all of Mykela’s sweet birthday details…the ice blue palette, the stone cake stands, that heavenly iced bundt cake, the staggered lit cakes, and the ice cream cone candles are just a few of the things I’m loving about this table.  Elizabeth – I’m so happy that you shared this with me and I think everyone will enjoy this one!
PS – I had a chance to meet Mykela out in California last year and she is just as sweet as these photos…Happy Birthday Mykela xoxoxo

  • Absolutely adorable. I love that blue, and the candles… so cute, all of them. My oldest niece is going to turn 13 this year. I think she’d pass out if she had a spread like that-so fantastic. But I have to say that if I had a 13-year-old daughter that looked like Mykela, I’d have to lock her up. That girl is stunning. Her parents are in big trouble. 😉
