SO, back to the lovely wedding dessert table styled by Sugar Coated Mama- I am in love with this gorgeous pink vintage dessert display! It has so many beautiful, delicate elements that would be perfect for so many events from a baby shower to a bridal shower to a girls’ night out!
Some highlights to look for are:
The tea cups and saucers stacked to create a dessert stand
The chocolate bar wedding favors wrapped in paper doilies and ribbon
Sarah said this about the party- “Styling this beautiful girlie vintage wedding table for my client Melanie and her husband Shaun was such a great opportunity to indulge in all the decadent prettiness that gals love – pink, floral, lace, tulle, roses, pearls and most importantly, loads of yummy treats…
STYLE / DÉCORATIONS:
Melanie wanted a vintage table with a modern touch, so we combined pretty florals with the pink and white stripe. The stunning Merewether Beach in Newcastle (Merewether Surfhouse) was the backdrop, so I wanted something very whimsical floating above the table which added style, but didn’t detract from the view. The soft pink and ivory tulle pom poms were the chosen decoration and they worked a treat. Flowers were another important element of this buffet, you can’t have a vintage wedding table without old style roses, and thanks to Jade McIntosh Flowers, the pink roses, white licianthers and green hydrangeas lifted the whole table. Other decorations included vintage tea cups, footed compotes in soft pink, pretty cake stands, pearls, lace doilies and lace ribbon.
It is important for dessert table to look amazing, but it is more important for the food to taste amazing. The table consisted of scrumptious vanilla and chocolate cupcakes with Italian buttercream, lemon meringue pies, strawberry mousse shots with cream and raspberries, peanut butter balls (my favourite), coconut slice, vintage cookies, vanilla and raspberry macarons with white chocolate ganache filling, dusty rose handmade chocolate lovehearts, oreo cookie buttercake cake pops, white chocolate coated Raspberries (amazing!!), fluffy pink and white marshmellows, musk sticks, pastel meringues, strawberry nougat and pink bubblegum flavoured jelly belly’s.”

What a bright and fun party theme for any girl. From sparkles to glow sticks there are just so many great ideas. Some of my favorite elements are:
The apothecary jars filled with candy
The gumball machine
The pink cupcake stands
The awesome labels on everything
Justine said this about planning the party- “The brief was black, white and hot pink disco theme to which I added gold, glitz and glam elements. The dessert table was filled with cupcakes and lollies in hot pink, gold, yellow and white. I painted some homemade cake stands in metallic gold and hot pink paint, then glued some sequined trim. Old pasta jars were sprayed gold and glammed up with mod podge and pink glitter plus a band of sequined trim to fill with fresh flowers and a plastic Ikea ‘Grab a Glowstick’ frame got the mod podge and gold glitter treatment. My friend Jenny from Concept Designs created the gold glitter ball backdrop and matching printable accessories for the table. I filled my hand-painted metallic gold gumball machine with hot pink sixlets and personalised milk chocolate bars sat on a vintage serving tray covered with diamante bling. A quickly made glitter cardstock ‘bling’ garland brightened up the front of the table.”
Here’s what Feather said about the party- “I was extremely humbled when Gemma, the magazine editor of Party Style Magazine, contacted me to style a set up featuring cupcakes for their Cupcake Issue! It was exciting to be given free reign to style the set up as I desired. With my primary focus on Spring I titled the set up “Cupcake in Bloom.” I knew I needed bright colors and lots of flowers to make this set up ideal. I designed coordinating printables with bright floral topped cupcakes. Belles Sweets did a fantastic job on the decorated cupcake shaped cookies. Tunky Monkey’s Sweet Treats and Savvylicious Sweets created fun and gorgeously detailed cupcake shaped cake pops. Myour Stories contributed a bright colored rag tie banner which completed the table set up nicely. I had Crest Foods, a local bakery in Oklahoma City, decorate cupcakes with flowers to bring it all together. The cupcakes coordinated perfectly with the cupcake wraps from Cupcake with Character. I photographed and captured all the details of the set up and items from these wonderful vendors that also include items from Kara’s Party Ideas, Hobby Lobby and Michael’s. It was a fun and exciting set up to style!”
