Last month I was asked to be a part of a styled wedding shoot with a darling pair of photographers Jaylee Photography at a new Seattle venue, Within Sodo. It was new to me to not be doing the entire shoot, as in the concept/design, decor/details and the styling but Ali did such an amazing job! And, it was actually really nice to just focus on the desserts! See more of this incredible winter wedding shoot on Seattle Bride!
A few weeks ago I was invited to create desserts for October’s Girl Power Hour event in Seattle. It was held at the most darling salon, Swink Style Bar in University Village. The theme was Breast Cancer Awareness, which means PINK to me! Everything was pink, pink drinks, pink food, pink clothes, pink treats, even pink tassel extensions being put into hair!
Every time I put a dessert table together I think to myself, this one is one of my favorites. Then the next table comes along and I think the same thing. They can’t all be my favorite, but this particular burlap and lace table I did for a recent wedding ranks pretty high on the list.
I met with the bride about a month before her wedding to talk about her vision for the dessert table. She was a little unsure of what she wanted, which is my favorite because that usually means the bride is open to my ideas. Everything I suggested she liked. Score!
A couple of weekends ago my friend Jennie’s little boy Bennett turned 3. Jennie contacted me in August about Bennett’s party and dessert table. I had a wedding booked the night before but since a fire station party has always been on my “want-to-do” list, I said yes.
A great big thanks to the Arlington Fire Department for letting us use their station to hold the party. We set up fort in one of their bays, with fire hoses as my table backdrop, and a vintage fire truck for the kids to play on. All the kids had such a good time.
Happy 3rd Birthday Bennett!!
