Theme: Wildflowers – pink, green and orange
We didn’t manage to take pictures as we set up just before the crowd came out so that the cream didn’t melt in the heat! But thankful that everyone was so ravenous that they didn’t bother so much. Haha. We have handmade tartlets (assorted fruits), macarons (earl grey lavender and vanilla raspberry), dark chocolate bundt, brownies, millionaire’s chocolate cake, red velvet cupcakes; rose, raspberry and pistachio cupcakes, apple crumble loaf and lemon drizzle loaf cakes.
This was just a little something we did for the lovely couple. I find that engagement parties are a good way to try something new and not just stick to the usual wedding colour palettes. Most people choose pink, purple or blue. But I was really happy when the lovely couple gave us room to create. It’s always very fulfilling, truly doing something you picture in your mind, when it comes to styling, flavours etc. I was very happy to find out that my partner in crime, Wini, was also asked to provide the centre-piece cake! Which made the whole process very smooth.
Winifred has taken wonderful pictures with her pro camera, my make shift editing has not done it justice. Check her post out instead!

I had the greatest pleasure of meeting one of the nicest people last week and also having the privilege of setting up her lovely daughter’s dessert table, this lovely person would be Dawn!
** Please do take note that the fondant centrepiece cake was not done by us **
As for the theme, I had 3 things to work around which was rustic, pastel-ish pink and chalkboards.
Theme: Pink, Green, Rustic, Woody
Some behind the scenes photos of the flower arrangements! I absolutely love the pop of yellow with the sage-y tones that the eucalyptus gives.
Yes, the watermelon, strawberry & grape tart with rose water makes its debut here!
So yes, thank you again Dawn for letting me go with the flow! So happy you and your family and friends enjoyed it all!
