Many of you know that I was lucky enough to fly to LA two weeks ago for Mindy Weiss' Most Ridiculous Wedding Event Ever. Well, here are some pictures from the "ridiculously talented" Elizabeth Messina of our dessert table. Style Me Pretty, the ultimate wedding blog, posted these pictures today. Yes, we know that we are seeing vintage, autumnal weddings everywhere, but we thought that we would shake things up a bit with a more bright and contemporary look for our visit to LA. After all, it was bright and sunny out in LA and we thought it would be our last chance of some color before the winter sets in.
At the event, I spoke to the many brides and event planners who attended about infusing their personality into the design of their event. I love graphic patterns so I wanted to infuse a bold pattern into the dessert table to show how I would bring a design that I loved into a dessert table. My thought was take a modern look that one might find on a Tory Burch tunic or a Jonathan Adler pillow (love them both!) and bring that into the event. With that, we created our own version of the classic greek key pattern for a modern and chic dessert table. We used that pattern for signage such as a backdrop, stickers, marshmallow flags, and candy bar wrappers. We had the "ridiculously talented" Cake Divas whip up a cake, cupcakes, cookies and petite fours using our greek key pattern. We even created greek key pattern flower sculptures using green mums. The idea is that you can take any pattern and color scheme and make your dessert table (or event design) completely your own. We had a "ridiculous" time creating this table and we hope that you enjoy our creation!
