So one of my really good friends from college is getting married in October (yay Ashley! so if you want to be surprised about any aspect of your shower, this is not the post for you). We are throwing a shower for her in Minneapolis over Labor Day weekend, and I am putting together the dessert table for it. I am SUPER excited about it for a couple of reasons. 1. I love dessert. 2. I didn’t have one at our wedding and I love the idea. I drool when I look at Amy Atlas’ blog. I hope that the decorations I’ve chosen will be useful for her for the wedding since she said she still doesn’t have everything she needs.
Well, the first thing I got was from one of my bee friends. See, she hosted a shower for a friend of hers, and I read about it and her beautiful dessert table on her blog. Her decor was fabulous! I thought I would use it as inspiration, but then I decided I should just ask her if she was willing to sell it to me because we all know there is no way I could make it as nice as she did. Luckily she was willing to sell!! So who was it? The talented Mrs. Mascara who now blogs over at Bijou Lovely.
I got the Love is Sweet banner and garland seen here:
I’m focusing on red and white items for the desserts.
Here are some ideas I’m throwing around…
Cake pops (They’re so cute! How can I not make them??)
Marshmallows (I know this is nougat, but pretend it’s not):
White chocolate covered strawberries:
Personalized Jones Soda:
So what do you think? Am I missing anything? Do I need more candy less baked goods or vice versa? I can’t wait!!
