Jewelry Inspired Guest Dessert Feature

Finally, the fifth and last guest feature of the day…Melissa and Kellie of Icing Designs sent over this fanciful dessert bar that they created for a Stella and Dot jewelry party.  I’m a girly-girl gal who loves both jewelry and desserts so this jewelry dessert combo is pure bliss for me.  This reminds me a little bit of the jewelry dessert feature I worked on for Town and Country Magazine.  I’m smitten with how those jewels are draped around the vessels.  I also love the silver, champagne, black and blush pink color palette, the mercury glass and silver pedestals, and the ribbon backdrop {check out a how-to for this here.}   The glittery tags that they created are also pretty fabulous!  Melissa and Kellie made the desserts from scratch and bejeweled them to dress them up.  The cupcakes they used were simple buttercream cupcakes dressed up with pink chocolate diamonds.  If you don’t have chocolate diamonds handy, bedazzle your spread with lots of glittery candy.  This is so pretty and a relatively easy display to put together {although you may have to run out and get some jewelry to recreate it!}

Some Sweet Styling and Practical Tips:

(1) Don’t be afraid to let some ribbon hang on your bows that are wrapped around your apothecary jars.  I often let my ribbon drape down on apothecary jars, especially if it is a feminine display.

(2) Be careful when you are using cupcakes that are not frosted on the whole surface.  While it looks so precious, often the cupcake is exposed to air for too long and the cupcake gets dry.  If you plan to do this, store those cupcakes really well in an air-tight container before putting them out.

Congrats Melissa and Kellie on a fantastic job!
