real parties: lemon & aqua citrus sweets

4.05.2011
One evening last week my husband hosted an event for his business at a local med spa, and I offered to do the planning for him.  Keeping the spa locale in mind, I designed the graphics around a yellow & aqua citrus theme, and arranged a dessert table to showcase baked goods from Cakewalk Baking.  Michele did an incredible assortment of citrus treats for us including sandwich cookies, two kinds of cupcakes, meringue tarts and lemon bars.  I accented the table with seasonal flowers, fresh lemons and coordinating ribbon, but everyone's favorite touch was the sour lemon balls lining the jadite cake plates- a whimsical way to add a pop of color!  Though the photos and the lighting don't really do the event justice, I was incredibly pleased with how everything turned out.  I hope you enjoy the fresh colors... a great combo to consider for your spring or summer birthday celebration.

  11. Your table is lovely!!

    No one likes to feel like a victim. It is very sad that someone has taken things that mean so much to you. I lost my diamond ring about 8 years ago - I wear a bunch of fakes now!! I am terribly afraid of losing another real one so I don't ever care to replace it. I know it must make you very sad to have lost your rings. I feel your pain - it would be wonderful if someday you got them back. I still dream of that moment!

    Glad to hear you are feeling better!
