Stella & Dot trunk show Dessert Table

I co-hosted a trunk show with my friend Alison this weekend!  It was so much fun, I LOVED wearing the jewelry!!!  A special thank you to our wonderful stylist Jamie Kloin who helped everyone pick & choose exactly what would look fabulous on them!  And thank you for letting me borrow some jewels to further dress the table.

Here are photos and the details of the dessert table I did which everyone enjoyed the sweetness of the taste and the presentation for sure!!

So for starters we had "Stellamo's (Cosmopolitan's) and Mojdoto's (Mojito's).  The Mojito's were very very good I would say and refreshing!   I bought a pre-made mix by Freshie's at the Fresh Market.  Freshie's cocktail mixes are so outstanding because they are all fresh...nothing fake, no high fructose sugar!  You have to try one of their many drinks they have to offer.












Now onto the desserts....
We had a three layer lemon drop cake that was filled with vanilla buttercream that was covered and decorated with Satin Ice Fondant.  Loved, loved the lemon cake!  Can't wait to make another one, this was my first and when it came out of the oven I had made a glaze with fresh lemon juice and confectioner's sugar and drizzled some on top and it soaked in.....what a difference!  I made a necklace out of the dark chocolate fondant that looks similar to the one S&D sell, it was very cute and I got alot of compliments again on the taste and the look of it!


In addition to the cake we had French vanilla shortbread cookies covered with Satin Ice and that I decorated with little designs I saw in the Stella & Dot look book.  Mini milk chocolate buttercream cupcakes, raspberry chambord buttercream cupcakes, chocolate covered strawberries, and mini macaroons with expresso chocolate drizzled over them.  In the jars there were blueberry taffy, m&m's and yogurt pretzels.  






A shot of the whole table...



For the DIY labels I googled the logo and copied it into word and created the labels.  I printed it out on photo paper, cut out the the logos and used a 2 inch scallop punch for the dessert labels and backed with card stock I got at Michael's.  It was definitely a great idea to have the table both for the host and the guests to make the party extra scrumptious and sweet!!  

I hope other S&D stylist who view my blog enjoy the look of everything and if you have any questions please let me know!
