Baby Shower Idea: Perfectly Feminine Dessert Bars


Tuesday, September 7, 2010


This dessert spread that the ladies over at Alchemy Fine Events & Invitations and Canvas and Canopy created is a confectionary dream straight from the scenes of a Marie Antoinette movie! And, Elizabeth and I love it! Love. It. Everything on the table is so perfectly dainty and feminine (hello, lace table cloth and ribbons galore! And, do we spy little meringues that are adding to the "delectable drama" that Vanessa and Courtnie created? We can't imagine anyone being able to refuse nibbling from this table at least once. Maybe, twice. Okay, fine -- three times. (I mean, it is a baby shower afterall. We personally can't think of a better time to over-indulge. Plus, we wouldn't want to be "rude"). :) So, consider this our plea for one of you to replicate this dessert table at your upcoming baby shower!

From Vanessa and Courtnie... Sinfully delicious and temptingly tantalizing, this White Sugar Dessert bar entices the palate with heirloom ceramic pieces topped with an array of confections. Jawbreakers, cupcakes and pile of sugar-dusted donuts topped with butterflies made for delectable drama, while meringues, nonpareils and mini-marshmallows were delicate and dainty. Vintage lace served as the textural base, while individual tags with ribbon tied everything together. The all white, candy-couture was nestled under a birch branch canopy for utterly sweet shelter!

I love how elegant and utterly unique these apothecary jars look with the labels and ribbon. Details make all the difference! This site is a joy and amazing inspiration for baby showers, weddings, and parties alike.

Amelia, thank you for the wonderful words. We have Vanessa to thank for all the darling details! :) And, Brooke, any luck on the canopy -- our husbands wouldn't let us use theirs saws for a backyard party Elizabeth had a couple of weekends ago. Something about hurting ourselves ... :)
