Dessert Meets Design: LOVE Dessert Table Sneak Peek

Since my company tagline is "Dessert Meets Design," I figured I'd give you a sneak peek into my design process.

I always start by creating an inspiration board using details that have already been chosen for the event. Here is the board for this table.
Next, I "map out" the table. I also do a quick sketch of any custom items. For this table, that included the design of the cookies, as well as creating pink-on-pink striped papers and navy logos for different favors. I like to jot down any notes about the theme or "feel" of the event. For this, I scribbled All You Need is Love for the theme and Preppy Pretty to describe the vibe. I wanted to balance the girl-y pink with more masculine navy and tan.

I wanted the plaid pattern on the cookies to be a certain style, more preppy than grunge or lumberjack. So, I sent the baker this for the design.
Check back Monday to see pictures of the completed table and all of the little details that made this a truly custom design for this event.
