Feminine Dessert Table for a Sweet Baby Girl

By: Amy Atlas, in Amy's Latest

I’m back with pictures of our dessert table for a darling mom-to-be’s shower. Yesterday, I posted some behind-the-scenes pics of us getting ready for the event. William Brinson stopped by to capture some shots of this lovely party. Want some deets about the event?

It was for a first-time mom, who is having….you guessed it a girl! The party took place at Park Avenue Summer, which is located on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. If you live in NYC or are visiting, this should be on your list of go-to restaurants. The name and decor of the restaurant changes with each season. In the summer, the restaurant is filled with gorgeous summery yellow decor, which was perfect for our pink and yellow palette. Their food will also satisfy the most discriminating palate. It can be somewhat pricey so save it for a special occasion if you’re on a budget.

Some sweet details about the event…

(1)Since the mom-to-be loved peonies, we found peony-patterned fabric and wrapped the fabric around peony arrangements. Remember when I twitpic’ed this picture? I was shopping for fabric to wrap up the vases. It is a simple and very inexpensive way to instantly dress up your vases.

(2) Since the mom-to-be wanted a feminine vibe for the event, we created a damask pattern. We brought that pattern into a custom backdrop, vessel liners, trail mix wrappers, strawberry mousse shot glass labels, and even the trays that lined the mimosas. We also brought in a striped and cross-hatch pattern to make the table feel a bit more playful since the party was for a baby shower.

(3) The desserts on the table varied from gourmet desserts such as raspberry truffles and parisian macaron to homemade treats like chocolate dipped oreo sticks {fun, right?} and trail mix with pink and yellow m & m’s.

(4) Also, a few lessons I learned from this event…
(a)If you triple line your linens, it will make it very hard to steam out those wrinkles, especially of you are working with silk taffeta.
(b) If you are using custom cupcake wrappers {like these that we found on our shopping trip here,} then make sure the frosting of the cupcake is higher than the cupcake wrappers or else your wrappers will be greasy. We couldn’t use them for this event, but we’ll be sure to use them in the future.

I hope you enjoy the peek into the party! Also, be sure to scroll to the bottom to see the winner of the Event Blossom 100 candy jar giveaway.
