Last night, I figured out how to dye the candy melts to get the perfect teal color. I wanted to test it before the big day May 11th. Tonight, I'm going to work on the fabric/ribbon backdrop for this dessert table. Sooo excited. Can May 11th hurry up??!!
Wedding Dessert Table
I am currently planning a wedding dessert table. It's for my future sister-in-law's wedding in May. I can't believe we're already in April. 2013 is going way too fast for me! My mom and sister birthday's are coming up in two weeks, so I'm busy busy trying to make something special for them. Then, it's Mother's Day AND Father's Day. It's like the holidays never stop. Eeeek.
I digress. ( I can go off topic very easily, FYI. My boyfriend says I have ADD...I call it having too many thoughts going on in my head at the same time. hahaha) Soooo I'm going to try to do something different for this wedding dessert table. I want to add a jello dessert to the list of desserts I want to use for her table. I am so excited to get started. Her colors are teal and white. I'm not sure how I'm going to make a teal jello, but maybe a turquoise will work. I think I've seen a blueberry flavored jello that comes out aqua blue. I need to start testing that (note to self). I saw these cute little squared plastic cups that I want to use for the jello. My idea is to layer a white colored jello (made out of milk-my mom makes theee best milk jello, just ask everyone who's ever had it, then a blue, then white, so it'll be a blue and white striped jello in the cute little squared cups and on top some type of fresh fruit-blueberries perhaps.
I'm also going to to make white chocolate dipped pretzels drizzled with teal colored chocolate, chocolate colored strawberries, chocolate dipped marshamallows, and for the favors I'm also going to make ooohh about 200 heart shaped sugar cookies dipped in chocolate and then wrapped in plastic with a cute teal bow. And last but not least, I'm going to make a "Love is Sweet" Sign for the table that I'm going to make out of burlap. I'm sooo excited. I usually get all the items I need from Alin's Party Supply, Joann's Fabrics, Michaels and sometimes Walmart has good things. Go like my facebook page (sweet creations by gaby) or follow me on twitter (gsweetcreations), or Instagram (sweetcreationsbygaby). Oh social media, how I love thee. ;)
Stay tuned....you don't want to miss this one!
I feel like everyone in my family is having babies!!! I love me a chubby baby. :) They are adorable.....ahhh their cute little toes and their cute little noses and all the cutsie onesies. Boy oh boy...there are going to be 3 new babies in my family just this year alone. (It's gonna be a fun Christmas)
So, my sister in law had her shower this past weekend and I'm so happy the table my sister and I created for her came out exactly how I pictured it in my head.
She wanted to have a "Under Construction" Theme baby shower. It meant dirt, yellow road trucks, measuring tape, caution tape, and maybe some road signs. Her uncle's girlfriend went all out in the decor of her party. My sister in law loved the dessert table I created for my Aunt a couple of weeks ago, so she asked me if I could create one for her to go with her theme.
Here are some pictures of the table...it came out sooo cute, what do ya think?
This past weekend, my sister, mom and I hosted my aunt's baby shower at my aunt's house. From the get go my aunt wanted something different for her shower. I showed her all of my ideas which included a lot of blue, elephants and various other boyish colors, since she's having a boy. Then I showed her a yellow and gray baby shower invitation and she fell in love with those two colors. So, that's where my inspiration began. I created her baby shower invitation using gray and yellow. My aunt also loved the onesie theme so I integrated the onesies and the colors wherever I could.
Below is her invitation....I forgot to mention on it that it was a boy, so lesson learned :) ...for next time. (She was getting calls about whether it was a boy or girl since the colors we used were pretty gender neutral. oops.)
I started thinking about and creating my vision for her dessert table about one month before her shower. Let me tell you... that was a sleepless month. All I could think about was her baby shower!! (side story: I like to keep lists and I make lists when I get super antsy so that I can get all of the things in my brain on paper. Well, just yesterday, I emptied my purse of all my notes/lists. Needless to say, my purse is soooo light...because my notes/lists were making up most of the weight in my purse. Oy...poor shoulder, now I know why I was having shoulder pain. yoga anyone?)
Anyway.....on to the dessert table and all of the other cutie little things I made for the baby shower.
I started off thinking about what kind of goodies I wanted to make for her dessert table. I knew I wanted to make mini lemon cupcakes and candy dipped pretzel rods. In order for the dessert table to look complete I wanted to have sugar cookies and cake pops. But...uhhhh I don't know how to make those. I mean I can try, but by no means would they look perfect.
So, in comes my friend Jen. She is so amazing. She is a pastry chef and let me tell you!!! She is very good at what she does. She makes everything from cakes to cake pops and sugar cookies and so much more. You HAVE to check out her website.
She created these for me. As you can see the sugar cookies and cake pops were made to match with the color theme. Aren't they adorable???
I also created a banner for her dessert table that I made using the same color theme. I fell in love with it.
I know this is a long blog post but I'm just so excited to share with you all this adorable baby shower.
I made these sweet mini lemon cupcakes and these yummy pretzels dipped in candy. Omg!...they're pretty addicting.
So there you have it...a yellow, gray and white/ onesie themed baby shower....hope to share some more cute table set ups in the near future. :)
