Moroccan Elephant Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions

This Moroccan Elephant themed submission was sent to us by Anne from UR Invited. She styled this for an expectant mom who has a baby boy on the way. The client wanted elephants to be in the theme so Anne decided on a teal and brown color palette and gave it a Moroccan twist. They started by creating a water color mother and baby elephant illustration with lace detailing. We’re seeing the use of watercolor lately so keep an eye on that trend! They used a water color and elephant design for the printables, invitations and cupcake toppers. Sweet treats on the dessert table included a beautiful ombre cake, macarons, cupcakes, and cake pops. We love how the cake plate that Anne used mimics the the doilies used as the backdrop.

  • Gorgeous! LOVE the Teal Blue and doilies backdrop! šŸ™‚

  • Gorgeous! I’ve always loved watercolor painting. I even made watercolor invitations for my daughter’s Under the Sea Tea Party party (because I obviously couldn’t find those in any store!). Even for someone who is not much of a painter, you can create really gorgeous color washes.

  • oh I love the soft colours and how they are so striking yet simple.

  • Aimee

    I just love this color combination and detailsss..

  • I love it, beautiful colors and dessert table

  • Andrea

    So pretty – love water colour, especially the ombre cupcakes!

  • Ria

    They did a great job on this lay-out. Just a comment that it should really be spelled as macaron, and not macaroons – which is a totally different dessert.

  • The cake is beautiful and I really like the use of the watercolor.
    Great job!

  • Love this! What a beautiful color scheme. Love that gorgeous backdrop!
