Yellow and grey. How much to I love this fresh, sophisticated palette? I've been waiting for an opportunity to use it and my dear friend Jo-Ann's baby shower was the perfect choice. My partner in party planning crime, Ryam, along with hostess extraordinaire, Loren and I pulled this intimate gathering together on a limited budget and a short timeframe. Read on for more details about how we did it. Enjoy!
Our dessert table - very pared down. We let fabrics, texture and pattern along with a few stand out sweets make a statement. The sweet lacy backdrops were drapery panels found for a steal at Ikea and our charcoal and white houndstooth runner was a just some pretty cotton yardage from Jo-ann's.
The centerpiece of our table.
Pewter roses and lemon yellow dots.
"C" is for baby Cash
Cookies play double duty as cupcake toppers.
Lemon cream cheese baby cakes.
Vintage babydoll carriage.
Hand-dipped vanilla meringues.
Sunny lemon drops
Lacy caramel corn cones.
Since we were having a smaller gathering of only sixteen guests, Ryam had the great suggestion that we set a long banquet table instead of separate rounds. We laid out some inexpensive white bedding sheets from Ikea as table cloths and layered it with sweet yellow and white polka dot yardage from Jo-ann's as an inexpensive, no-sew runner. More easy breezy sheers suspended from the pergola.
Hand painted flower pots and fresh flowers.
Dollar Store plates and glassware.

What a beautiful wedding! Vanessa and David, the gorgeous couple, held their reception at the incredible Rancho Las Lomas, in Silverado Canyon. Lush overgrown trees and greenery, tigers and zebras on the grounds and a beautiful villa with a Rapunzle-type turret off in the distance. What a fabulous backdrop for our Sangria and Spanish Lace styled dessert table. We used deep bordeauxs, fuschias and a pop of orange contrasted with crisp white goodies on dark chocolate brown table, all set against a gorgeous blue tile background. What a beautiful day. Enjoy!
The bride had five cakes. The large central one was three tiers of red velvet and cream cheese, and the four small ones scattered around the table were all different; devil's food cake with chocolate and raspberry filling, classic white cake with strawberry and cream cheese filling, chocolate cake with dark chocolate filling, and lemon cake with lemon and raspberry filling. All covered simple buttercream roses and topped with deep wine colored fresh dahlias.

Rustic cake stand - the perfect touch.
Six inch mini cakes.
Gorgeous deep dahlia.
This was my gift to the bride and groom: an edible cake topper for them to take home and enjoy on their one year anniversary. I was in cahoots with one of the bridesmaids for details and pictures of the bride's dress, flowers and hairstyle to resemble the happy couple.

The bride had a special request for a treat that incorporated Oreos (the groom and his friends have a special fondness for this classic cookie), so I made a batch of these Oreo truffles. I'm loving the mini Oreo toppers with tiny roses piped in the bride's colors.
Congratulations Vanessa and David!
