baby shower for Siena

Baby Siena has recently come into the world with a family who loves her, cherishes her and prays for her.

I was so honored to cater and set the dessert table for the special day to honor Kristen, the mom-to-be.

Her mother in law is a friend of mine and I always love working with her! She is truly one of the best hostesses I’ve ever known! Her taste level and style is wonderful and I truly appreciate that she trusts me.

We talked about making this event very customized and beautiful for the special day. Everything was worked out, so that I could provide smaller desserts that were decorated perfectly.

The palette was very pale pink with white and gold. I had to create the color of crystallized sugar, since there was nothing I could purchase to fit what we wanted to achieve. The shade was really pretty on the white-chocolate glazed sugar cookies!

The centerpiece for the table was a beautifully-crafted wooden “Siena” made by the dad-to-be. It was so precious with the floral pieces at the base. They also helped to cover the holder we used.

We decided to keep the desserts on the small-side so that the ladies at the shower could easily enjoy a variety. On the menu were classic Eclairs with some white chocolate shavings on top, alongside mini cupcakes in Strawberry-Lemonade, Red Velvet and Chocolate with White Chocolate buttercream.

I made smaller cookies in Sugar, Vanilla Biscotti with a white chocolate drizzle, Oatmeal Raisin and Chocolate Chip.

I used my white plating and pedestals to go with the white tablecloth that was provided.

The room at the La Costa Resort and Spa was stunning. I loved the table settings and all of the floral arrangements done by Bella Florina Event and Design.

As with every event, this was a lot of work behind the scenes and there was so much joy when it all came together at the dessert table. I’m so grateful to be able to do this.
