Sweet Surrender — A Display of Desserts Inspired by the Roaring 20′s

When favorite floral fashionista Aileen Tran from Karen Tran Florals called to discuss a new design concept for a decadent dessert station, we were all ears.  Drawing her inspiration from the fashion of the Roaring 20′s, Aileen crafted this amazing display and asked J Grace to create a suite of paper goods to compliment her design — YES PLEASE!  Keeping to the color palette of all metallic hues, we chose an assortment of patterned handmade papers to incorporate into the design.  Luxurious dessert cones complete with a tassel and small crystal and pearl brooch, custom monogram seals dripping with swarovski crystal embellishments and “Sweet Dreams” take home candy bags were produced with pleasure.  Although the inspiration was born from an era of long ago, and boasted an assortment of heirloom vessels and vintage serving pieces, the concept of  including a dessert station into today’s wedding is very modern and all the rage.   Why not surprise your guests with something sweet beyond the expected slice of wedding cake?

Many Thanks to Terri Rippee for these beautiful photos and Exquisite Weddings Magazine for featuring this visual feast!
