What’s black & white and fuchsia and teal all over?  This table that was sent to us by Lillian from Lily Chic Events. With the help of Leoni from Just Call Me Martha, they created this table that was inspired by the summer wedding season in Australia.

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…

Damask Guest Dessert Feature

This elegant guest feature is from Sandra of Sandra Downie Events.  Sandra emailed me to tell me that she was inspired by our work when she created this beautiful black, white and green damask dessert bar for a recent wedding. What I really love about this table is the bold color palette.  The lime and chartreuse against the black and white damask makes a big statement.  I also love the damask curtains, which anchor the…
