Pretty in Pink Desserts

Okay, I know how overly commercialized Valentine’s Day is, but I still love it.  Pink and red and hearts and kisses, sappy romantic comedies, ‘Just Because I Love You’ gifts and cards, an excuse to curl my hair and paint my lips red and glossy … a head in the clouds sort of day.  Oh and did I forget to mention DESSERT?!

Pink Strawberry Champagne Cupcakes (OMG) – recipe at Bubbly & Sweet

Bubblegum Marshmellows [my daughter would INHALE these] – recipe at Piece of Cake

Let Them Eat Wedding Cake

Instead of having a traditional wedding cake, we opted for our favorites – Carrot Cake w/ Cream Cheese Frosting, German Chocolate Cake, and plenty of cookies and candies.

We used biodegradable plates and bamboo veneerware forks from Branch for serving up the sweets.

The ribbons behind the table are part of a curtain I found at a thrift shop and worked perfectly with the gingham table cloth.

I also enlisted the help of my Aunt Karen and Cousin Val to make some of those great Ice Cream Party Favors from The City Cradle.  The kids LOVED them!

Good times were had by all!  XO!
