Last Friday I had the great pleasure of styling a dear friend of mine's 40th birthday. Melissa chose the swish Emporium Hotel as the location for this fabulous bash.
I helped Melissa with the design of her invitation. She wanted something feminine, fashionable and fab so I introduced her to the work of Kerrie Hess. Kerrie has worked for some of the most iconic fashion houses in the world including Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Kate Spade to name just a few. We commissioned Kerrie to create a signature illustration that embodied everything about Melissa. Her love of flowers, champange, chandeliers and gorgeous gowns.
Once I saw the artwork Kerrie had produced I knew I wanted to use that as the backdrop to the dessert table. I selected a nest of three white high gloss tables and ornate frames to serve the delicious petite sweets from Taart on. The florals on the table are from The Lush Lily (Melissa's chain of florist shops).
The stunning cake and sweet treats were all lovingly made by Taart and the macarons are from Marche du Macaron.
Food included - heeled shoe cookies, cupcakes, white chocolate and strawberry mousse, white chocolate tarts, raspberry tarts, baileys chocolate tarts, chocolate caramel cups and macarons.
