Minted and Vintage Styled Dessert Table

1st August 2012

I am so excited to finally share this dessert table that I styled for Minted and Vintage! It was featured on Amy Atlas’ blog on May 30th 2012.

 Styling this table meant so much to me because I was doing it for the face of my business. I knew I wanted these images to represent my baby, Minted and Vintage so naturally, I felt a little pressure to get it right. I mean, so much was riding on this, right? I felt so intimidated but why? I had styled many beautiful tables before. In every new endeavor I always find myself asking the Lord for guidance, no matter what the situation, big or small. I guess it’s because I am always trying to make sure that I am following the path that He has set out for me. After doing this, things just started falling into place!

While shopping at one of my favorite thrift stores, I came across a lovely bolt of this minty colored fabric that you could tell was super old, it was just sitting there collecting dust. I knew right away that I could use it for something (and it was 50% off so it came out to $5!). Then I stumbled across these vintage pink chiffon and lace window valances that I knew I had to have! Everything looked like a perfect match, the colors represented the colors in my logo, so it felt like it was meant to be!

Since I love combining old and new, I used a mix of freshly minted and vintage cake stands, bowls, compotes, and domes from my collections.

Desserts on the table included strawberry marshmallows, lemon drops, cake pops, vanilla meringues, mini cupcakes, and an assortment of {faux!}cakes. In keeping with the vintage theme, I wanted my cakes to be iced the  traditional way with yummy buttercream icing while incorporating the modern styles that are popular today like ruffles, rosettes, and swirls. I found a delightful lady by the name of Denise of Lucky Treats (who’s daughter used to own Michelles Cake House in La Habra, CA) who decorated my cakes to perfection, I think she did an awesome job! I also owe a big thank you to my childhood best friend Claudia for lending me a helping hand and being my light (literally!) I am so happy with the way my Minted and Vintage dessert table turned out and having it featured in Amy Atlas’ blog was the icing on the cake!
