Mr & Mrs Luong Vintage inspired dessert table

Wow! I can't believe it is 2012!! I firstly want to wish everyone a very Happy New Year!! How did you lovelies celebrate? 

We had a huge party!! Well kind of .. {hehe} Some very good friends of ours got married on New Year Eves, so it was a fantastic way to celebrate their wedding and also bring in the new year.

I had the great honor of styling Mr & Mrs Luong's dessert table and also designing their wedding cake and cupcakes.  Oh and I almost forgot I also got to make macaron favors too.  As you can imagine it was a crazy busy week leading up to the wedding { with Christmas, hubby and I - 8 year wedding anniversary and our gorgeous lil munchkins 4th birthday} I don't think I got much sleep at all.  I have to say that it was all worth it tho.  The dessert table turned out amazing and Mr & Mrs Luong love what I came up with.

Mr & Mrs Luong's Dessert Table

The wedding had a vintage inspired theme with gorgeous bird cages and teacup and pearl center pieces.  For the dessert table we followed that theme with gorgeous shabby chic furniture, hanging bird cages, lots of gorgeous teacups & saucers, beautiful cake stands, vintage napkins and table clothes and the most amazing white hydrangeas and roses.

Their wedding colours were teal & pink, so we decided to have a teal fondant ruffle cake with a pretty dusky pink flower as the topper.  The flower was inspired by a fabric flower that I have in my studio.

I especially loved this dresser that I source, it was the perfect canvas for our the pretties to be displayed on.

These were absolutely delicious!! Mini trifles in a shot glass and on the cut glass cake stand yummy opera cake and of course our mini cupcakes in white chocolate raspberry and tangy lemon poppy.

Also on the menu mini fruit tarts, macarons, the most delish chocolate mousse!!

I loved the hanging bird cages with the back drop of fairy lights.

Oh and how can anyone resist the mini creme brulee? They were just to dye for!

Out of all the tables this would have to be my favourite!!! I just loved everything about it!! 

Beautiful teacups & sauces and gorgeous hydrangeas in vintage glass jars {LOVE}

The wedding was just amazing and we all had a fabulous time!!!  An amazing new years eve!!

Congratulations to my very good friend Viv & Mike!! May you have many years of joy and happiness together!!

Happy New Years Lovelies!
