In mid March on a warm Tuesday evening, I had the pleasure of styling a dessert table for a small shower for the daughter of a former colleague of mine. This second shower was held for a few close friends and coworkers of the mommy-to-be. When Lynn (the grandmother) told me what the nursery theme was I started beaming with ideas and I knew just what I needed to do. I just HAD to make Winnie the Pooh SEXY! I know you all think I am crazy..ha ha ha...and I am when it comes to this stuff. I am not the biggest fan of character theme parties. Therefore if I was going to do this I had to do it in a manner that would exceed client expectations and not stifle my creativity in the process. To do this I enlisted the help of local cake artisans, Dream Day Cakes. When I told Fred that I needed sexy Winnie the Pooh details I am sure he thought I was plum nuts, but after I shared my vision he was more than excited. I wanted to use more than the traditional colors and Carmen from The Flair Exchange helped my do just that by making an oh so cute tassel garland. In addition to the lovely desserts by Dream Day, I had designer Oreos made by Sweeties by Kim.
My goal was to create an overall feeling without it being traditional pooh. I think it came out great! A special special thanks to the wonderful vendors! Here are pics from the party. Enjoy!
