Grand Opening: Carrie Wildes Photography & Events in Bloom

Carrie Wildes of Carrie Wildes Photography is one of our favorite photographers EVER. She always captures the most down-right gorgeous weddings where the love and emotion is so vivid, you can almost touch them.  At Chic Sweets we have been extremely lucky to have Carrie capture our dessert tables (here and here). So when we were asked to provide a dessert table for the grand opening of Carrie's studio (shared with Events in Bloom), it was a no-brainer! Carrie has been a longtime supporter of our work so we could not more thrilled with how her company has grown.

One of the best parts of this table was that we were able to bring Carrie's work in as the backdrop which definitely made the table feel more personal. Also for our cake pops, we decided to put them on mini-icecream cones (recipe adapted from Bakerella).

Avila Country Club with Limelight Photography

Hope everyone is having a lovely day!

We’ve had a long term love affair with Limelight Photography …with some of our most favorite dessert tables coming from behind their lens (here and here). Well, when Limelight's amazing skills get paired with a our bride, Enid's super glam approach, we always get super excited to share it with you.

And this one had us the moment we saw the insanely beautiful, "bling" fuchsia and platinum color palette and the glow coming from every image.

Behind the Scenes-Daytime TV Show

So finally able to catch my breath on some much-needed blogging. We had the fantastic opportunity to appear on NBC-affliate (WFLA) Daytime TV Show to share dessert table tips for the upcoming holidays: Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Halloween, which is right around the corner.

All three segments were filmed in one day but will be airing at separate times. Our Halloween Dessert table aired last week and above are some behind the scenes shots. It was soooo much work and more involved than I could have ever imagined, but the final product turned out great!

So first up: Halloween! This was by far, my favorite table to plan. So many great projects for this one. From the glitter pumpkins to the pumpkin cooler, everything just came together wonderfully.  

Below are a list of contributors for this table:

1.  Candy and Desserts/Table Design: Chic Sweets
2.  Cake stands: Rosanna, Inc.
3.  Linen: Linens by the Sea

Segment to be posted shortly! Thanks for your patience.
