Party Recap

This is the first table I do under my new dessert table styling business, Events by Nat.

I knew I had to pull out all my creative ideas when my sister in law asked me to do a dessert table for her Runway/Catwalk themed 21st birthday party.

The first idea that popped in my head was that I have to have a runway on the table and this is what I did. I built a mirrored runway down the middle of the table. The main 'model' on this runway was the cake. I found a Chanel inspired cake on style unveiled and went to my trusted cake artist Jacki at Blissfully Sweet and asked her to make a similar cake with no pearls but diamonds instead (as insisted by my sister in law). The cake turned out absolutely amazing and looked like the most beautiful gown you would see on a Versace or Chanel runway except it was eatable.

In the middle of the runway I had a meringue fountain which flowed meringues onto the chairs on the sides of the runway. It looked absolutely amazing.

Blissfully Sweet also made the amazing designer cupcakes(which were all based on the birthday girls various favourite fashion designers), Chanel cake pops and Versace cookies.

I stationed a Versace cookie at the start of the runway on a stand showing that it's a Versace fashion show in progress.

I had two embellished mannequins on the sides of the table with various designer tags on them and holding rock candy.

Other desserts included a designer candy bar (consisting of, black and silver sixlets, white bonbons, marshmellows and nougat) designer oreo pannacottas, blush Macarons, Raffaelos and Monique's 21st Chocolates which all tied in with the colour scheme.

The backdrop was designed like a runway. A mirror hung on the wall in the centre with black curtains draped to both sides.

Overall the event turned out like a fashion show. Stunning!!

    I made the runway using foam boxes which were covered with glittered paper and a mirror was placed on top of the boxes.

    The chairs were bought from a wedding favor shop. They are cardboard and you assemble them at home. I embellished them.
