New Venture...Dessert Tables!

I'm happy to finally share with you a new part of our business...styling dessert tables.  We are working with Paula LeDuc Fine Catering to create custom dessert tables for special events.  Paula LeDuc is providing all of the delicious desserts and we are working with her to personalize the desserts and  presentations.  If you have been lucky enough to taste Paula LeDuc's food you know that everything she makes tastes as amazing as it looks.  This table is from Tyler Florence's birthday celebration.  The party was planned by Laurie Arons Special Events and was at Tyler's newest restaurant, El Paseo, in Mill Valley, California.  It marked the debut of the restaurant {the restaurant was a still a construction zone that day},  El Paseo provided a preview of their menu and Paula LeDuc created the sweets.

The desserts & table mirrored the rustic feeling of the newly refurbished restaurant.  Laurie worked with Paula LeDuc to have desserts that were hearty enough to stand up to the delicious chophouse food they served.  She also picked desserts that are some of Tyler's Favorites {mini pecan pies a nod to his southern roots & banana trifle}.   One of the first things to go was my favorite "Paula's 'smores"  {far left photo}, they are homemade graham cookies with chocolate ganache and meringue on top ... yummy!
Also on the menu, the cutest little apple turnovers, spiced cupcakes, cookies and ccmade carmel corn.  The desserts were in the main dining room which converted into the dance floor after dinner with DJ Dojah spining the tunes.  The mini desserts were the perfect size to eat in between dancing and socializing.

I am so lucky to have found a business that combines two of my favorite things - food (desserts to boot} and paper!  Hopefully there will be many more to share soon...
