In December I met Bachelor alums Jason and Molly Mesnick at Santa’s Secret Workshop. Jason and Molly have been married now for three years, live here in Seattle, and are expecting their first baby together this March. I was thrilled to create a dessert table for Molly’s special day, her “baby party” as she called it.

Minted designed a darling invitation and coordinating party decor. Using gender neutral colors (gray, green, yellow, and white) along with baby animals, giraffes, elephants, zebras, and sheep.  To incorporate the stationary into the dessert table, I pulled the colors into the icing, and made animal shaped sugar cookies to coordinate with the invitation.  With Minted’s matching table confetti, I made a bunting to hang across vintage windows, and made an even tinier one for the top of the cake.

Our table was featured on people.com as well as E! online, Yahoo, Project Nursery, The Bump and more. The shower was also shown on E! News with Giuliana Rancic, giving Jenny Cookies a great shout-out! Yay!

Congratulations Jason and Molly! I can’t wait to meet your new bundle of joy!

Another fun table from June was the Bake Shop dessert table we did for a baby shower in Mercer Island. The couple hosted a sip and see for their close family and friends to meet their new baby girl. The hosts showered their guests with not only sips but lots of sweets as well!

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!!

At 4:30pm the night before St. Patrick’s Day I thought to myself “I should have a party tomorrow”. YES. Have a party. Who needs sleep? With less than 24 hours notice all my friends showed up in their green clothes, with a green snack to share. How great are they?

I told the kids with all the rain we’d had there must have been a rainbow and a pot of gold left somewhere in the park. And sure enough, they found one!

Those silly leprechans!

One of my best friends is getting married later this month which meant I was able to make all kinds of desserts for her bridal shower a few weekends ago. I think everyone really enjoyed it..since there wasn’t a single crumb left on the table afterwards!

Among an insane amount of cookie and cupcake orders, I thought why not add to my already overflowing holiday to-do list and throw a gingerbread house making party for my friends and their kids?

Best idea ever. My friends are really good moms. Really GOOD moms. 13 children came to party without a single scream, yell, tantrum, or fit thrown the entire time. It was calm. Almost relaxing calm. It was as if all the moms teamed up, like we’re here for a single purpose, let’s do this together. No giant messes, no big spills, no toys baskets dumped, no breaks, just a fantastic group of kids.

Until Hudson sprayed perfume in his eyes.
