Milestone Birthday in Aqua & Damask (11 photos)
Milestone birthdays are big events. Although a lady rarely admits her age, ten more years of living is certainly something to celebrate – how fabulous to be able to share the day with an intimate group of friends and family!
A vintage shabby chic style was the starting point for this dessert table. Lots of ribbon, a damask pattern, platters with scalloped detailing and an antique dresser all contribute to the theme. And of course it wouldn’t be shabby chic without a strong floral element so giant white hydrangeas were added to vessels with long delicate glass stems.
The color palate was chosen to reflect a similar color pairing in the guest of honor’s home. Aqua is fresh and clean and gives the neutral damask pattern a splash of color. Beautiful satin ribbon in aqua was wrapped around the hydrangea stems. It was also attached to the gilded finials on the antique dresser to give it a sense of whimsy and keep it contemporary.
We chose favorite flavors of the birthday girl to incorporate into this dessert table. Chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate; mini chocolate bars, chocolate cupcakes, chocolate balls and chocolate drizzled cake pops. Delicate raspberry empire cookies, rock candy swizzlers, mints and tropical jelly beans offered delicious variety. And to give everyone a little hit of caffeine as the evening progressed we included fabulous oversized espresso macarons.
Sweet treats for a sweet lady – happy birthday!
