Dessert Meets Design: Ruffles with a Side of Star Wars Dessert Table

It's been forever since I touched based on this ole blog. Hopefully, you've been following along on Pinterest and Instagram, because I'm loving both those platforms right now. But, it's been a while, so it's good to get back to my blogging roots. I love working with Kirsten of Fab Event Design, and this time was no different.

What better way to say, "Hey, girl heeeey!" and get back in the swing of blogging than with a pretty dessert table I designed for Katharine & Tim's wedding? It was photographed by Melissa Oholendt and dressed up with Munster Rose blooms all set in beautiful Aria Minneapolis.

My clients, Katharine and Tim, wanted the table's vibe to match the femininity of the bride's blush pink dress (It was ah-mazing!) and the elegance of the invite's soft silver, ivory, and champagne palette. As pretty as the table was, it was also really important to the bride and groom that we incorporate a little Star Wars into the design. Gateaux added a tiny Princess Leia and a lil' Chewbacca for the topper on their ruffle cake. I was so obsessed with the cake frosting, that I had to try to recreate it at home weeks later. The kids were all over that. Here's another close-up of these two when they came out from behind the bow.

This sophisticated design wouldn't be complete without some macarons, custom monogrammed petit fours, and shooters. I designed custom favor boxes for the kids and custom bags for the chocolate potato chips and bacon brownies. Because let's face it, it wouldn't do to just have them sitting in a bowl on the table.

The sweet display wouldn't have been complete without the R2D2 groom's cake. Not only was he made following a very specific blueprint, he also made the robot's trademark sounds and lit up! Want to hear for yourself? Check out this video I posted from the wedding.

Check out the noises this R2-D2 grooms cake made. Amazing, right?!?


Loved this couple, loved the vendors, loved it all!
