Dessert Table: MN Bride's Best of 2010 Gala & Printables

I'm excited to finally share this dessert table with you! I'm doubly excited because The Inspired Bride is also kindly featuring the design today here and I've created printables from this design to share with you. You may remember that I designed a dessert table for Minnesota Bride magazine's annual award gala, which is called The Best of 2010.
MN Bride planner, Amanda Peterson chose a beautiful purple, white, and silver palette, which you see reflected in the dessert table. Amanda also chose semi-round tables to mimic the Carlson Towers Rotunda's round ballroom. Remember this gorgeous fountain I showed you?
Photographer Tricia Little of Sweet Shibui captured all of the desserts beautifully.
I designed the logo to subtly represent an award, since that was the occasion at-hand. So, I designed it to include the notched ribbon part of a 1st Place Prize ribbon. I designed a striped macaron tower to display the lemon raspberry French cookies.
Guests enjoyed custom white chocolate truffles, lemon lavender gourmet marshmallows, pear ginger cupcakes, white chocolate lavender cupcakes, and whoopie pies. I also designed custom candy bars, popcorn boxes, cupcake wrappers, and favor bags, which I gave you a sneak peek of here.
At the end of the night, we were all treated to a complimentary copy of the newest issue of MN Bride, which is on newsstands now!
Check out more great pics of the decor and winners from the event here. I especially love this little boy, who was enjoying a cupcake.

I'd also like to thank the fabulous vendors who helped me bring my design to life. Minnesota is full of sweet talent like, Cake Eater Bakery, Laura's Candy, and Sweets Bakeshop. I'd also like to thank the ladies at Sugar & Flour and WannaHavaCookie.

Don't forget to grab the candy bar and favor label printables for yourself when you visit The Inspired Bride! I created them in three color choices.
