The Sweet Table Boutique by La Dolce Idea – Jewel Tones

Jewel tones never go out of style: they’re still popular choices on the runway and, of course, at weddings.

Being a huge fan of jewel tones, I designed a dessert table that featured hanging cakes and a bed of succulents with irresistible sweets.


Grove Pastry Shop was one of my partners in crime for the sweet spread that included sugar cookies, vanilla and chocolate cupcakes, and red velvet cake pops, all decorated with gems.

Sweet Cheeks Baking Company decorated three cakes in different sizes and shapes with gems and superb details, and I used an ingenious metal structure by Enticing Tables to suspend two of them over the tabletop.

I completed the look with violet mints, peanut butter and cream mini donuts, and some fun candy such as green apple sour rings.


Laura with Sweet Ribbon Events provided the cobalt blue linen and she created the floral bed with dahlias, amaranthus, and roses among multi-colored succulents. Marvelous!

I had fun creating all the tags with three layers of card stock (purple or blue, gold and white) and velvet ribbon in contrasting colors, each one finished with a sparkling brooch.

The Pantai Inn was the location for this dessert table: their courtyard is absolutely divine, and it worked great with the jewel colors.

Ceremony Magazine featured the dessert table on their magazine – Thank you so much!
