Hi from P&J by Design

We recently styled a candy/desert table for a gorgeous couple who were celebrating their engagement party.

The brief from the clients was pretty simple, they wanted a "Black & White " themed candy/desert table.

The style and essence of this table was going to be based around the design of the engagement cake supplied by the clients.

I feel in love with this two tiered cake ,which incoporated a detailed freehand piping work design.

My main objective was to create a backdrop which would be the focal point for the table .

A backdrop that would be eye catching from the minute you walked in the room. A design that was elegant and sofisticated .

To achieve this I instantly new which lace fabric I wanted to use to cover the entire backdrop. It was going to match the cake design perfectly.....

To highlight the flower detail of the lace i also handmade large paper flowers for the corners of the backdrop in black and white. I found that Making these can take a lot of time , but well worth it .....

With regards to the table linen I wanted to create something special. Rather than use a plain black tablecloth I purchased lovely black rosette embellished fabric and had it custom made to fit the table . Allowing it to drap right down to the ground, adding a bit of glamour.

Jo from (Love that Photography) captured this event with some gorgeous images. She is truly amazing......Love her work.....

The talented Lisa from (Cakes and Biscuits by Lisa) created the gorgeous engagement cake ,cupcakes , cake pops macaroons and biscuits. The cupcakes and biscuits for me were just divine. Lisa created these sweet treats closely matching it back to the backdrop and design of the engagement cake. And what about that cake...... A work of art ... Thank you Lisa for your dedication and skill in piping ( free hand) all the detail on this cake. Simply stunning.......

Valeriane  from Valeriane Digital did  an amazing job in creating a printable file incorporating the cake design for the candy jar labels, lolly box tags and choc bar wrappers.

The white tableware pieces were hired from Old New Borrow Blue. Which included some adorable vintage Fenton Milk Glass Compotes pieces.

Other sweet treats included Persian Fairy Floss, Lemon Meringues, and Choc Caramel Tarts.

I purchased an old Provincial style hall table which i used to display the lolly boxes. It was such a pleasure styling this table .

Thank you to all the vendors involved for their passion and commitment , it was lovely seeing the vision come to fruition......

Congratulations to the happy couple. Hope you enjoy the pics

Thank you Betty P&J by Design xx
