Floral Guest Dessert Feature

I’m up to the second guest feature of the day.  This drop dead gorgeous display is from Allyson and Sarah of Bobbette and Belle from Canada.  Bobbette and Belle first came on my radar last year when the owners Allyson and Sarah sent me pictures of their gorgeous macaron towers.  This display was created for a fundraiser for the NICU and the Avery Goldman Fund at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto.  This stunning home provided a perfect setting for the display.  Can I live in this home please?  If I had that kitchen, I would never leave it.  Okay, let me stop daydreaming and get back on track with the dessert design…I love how Allyson and Sarah pulled the floral pattern and color palette from the pillows on the couch and brought it into the display.  You can see that floral pattern woven throughout the party {on the floral containers, the runner on the dessert display, etc}.  The soft palette of pinks, pearl grey and blue with the floral pattern is effortlessly chic and charming.  How perfectly executed is each and every single one of those desserts?  They are all dreamy!  I love how all of the intricate designs work together, yet aren’t too matchy-matchy.  

{A sweet note – the ladies told me that tickets were sold out for this event and the hospital was able to purchase a new retinal eye scanner with the proceeds!}. 

Some Sweet Styling and Practical Tips:

(1) When you are placing platters on top of platforms, it isn’t a bad idea to affix the platters to the platforms.  Guests can get pretty pushy when they see a display like this and you wouldn’t want your platters knocked over.  I use a hot glue gun to secure my platters to platforms.  

(2) If you’re setting up a dessert display in a kitchen, make sure food isn’t being cooked at the same time.  It looks like Bobbette and Belle had the kitchen just for desserts, but I’ve had situations when food was being prepared by the caterer in the kitchen at the same time.  If you are in that situation, make sure your desserts don’t go out until the kitchen is cooled down.

Again, drop. dead. gorgeous.  Congrats ladies!
