Cori’s Bridal Shower

This had to be the prettiest bridal shower I have ever attended.  Everything came together so perfectly on her special day. The mint, coral, and gold colors were so pretty together. The bridesmaids and Cori’s mom  (my sweet best friend)  carried the theme throughout the house and backyard with many custom DIY projects.

I had so much fun making some of the sweets for the dessert buffet. I made cookies to match the chevron theme using mint, coral and gold colors. The French macarons were filled with mango buttercream. The pretzel rods were wrapped in caramel and dipped in white chocolate.  We dipped Oreos in white chocolate using chocolate molds from www.spinningleaf.com   The curly alphabet cookie cutters are from www.cakesbyximena.com The adorable cake was made by Cucamonga Cakery in Rancho Cucamonga and the mini champagne cupcakes were made to match by our sweet friend Laurie.

The talented Kristin Visk of www.kristinviskphotography.com captured these beautiful photos of the day and I am so happy to be able to share them here with you here. For more beautiful photos of Cori’s shower please check out her blog post here. www.kristinviskphotography.com

Bridal Shower in Yellow and Grey

I made these cookies for a dear friend who I have known since Jr. High. She asked me to create some cookies for her future daughter in law’s bridal shower. She loved a set of  burlap and lace cookies I had done before but the brides colors were in yellow and grey. Here is my thought process from sketching designs  to finished cookies.

Burlap and Lace Bridal Shower

I loved making these cookies for a bridal shower. The theme was burlap and lace with touches of coral and mint
I got to use Sugarveil icing for the lace cookies for the first time and practice my quilting and quatrefoil piping as well as airbrushing. All in all a very fun set where I had complete creative freedom

Ktichen Themed Bridal Shower in Fall Colors

I had fun making these baking and kitchen themed shower cookies for a bride to be. I got to use some fun new cutters (thank you Diana of www.facebook.com/The-Cookie-Princess and try out some new techniques I learned recently at an Advanced Cookie Bootcamp class taught by Angela of (http://ohsugareventplanning.blogspot.com/ I also fell in love with some new colors I had in my color stash but had never used before… I think Copper and Terracotta are my new favorite colors for Fall cookies.
Part of the fun of designing a new set is sketching out ideas. I went to Target’s Back to School section and proudly bought new crayons and fun new twistable colored pencils that never need sharpening. I felt like a kid shopping for new supplies! I got to work tracing my cutters and sketching ideas. You can see the final cookies evolved a little differently but you get the idea.
Thank you to Callye of www.sweetsugarbelle.com for her awesome set of baking cookies here http://www.sweetsugarbelle.com/2013/03/baking-theme-cookies/that gave me ideas for repurposing cutters to use.
