Pineapples and Palm Leaves Party

Gold Pineapple themed bridal shower with palm leaves and naked cake by Cafe Pierrot

For this bridal shower, the bride wanted her fiance to join her. He was more excited about the kitchen gadgets than she was, and so a joint-shower was planned.

Inspired by our Hawaiian Theme menu, the Maid of Honor planned a classy luau  shower without the typical bright floral prints, leis, and Hawaiian shirts.

The dessert table was the focal point of the event with hand-cut palm leaves and gold spray-painted pineapples. She added white hydrangeas to our classic naked cake, per the bride’s request.

Signs of Spring! The colors and flowers of this season were especially inspiring as we created this Easter dessert table. We love the opportunity to display our beautiful cookies and cupcakes for this time of year.

Of course, tulips are necessary for an Easter table display. We’ve paired our flowers with brown and white eggs in a pink wire basket. By using natural colored eggs, instead of dyed “Easter eggs,” we kept the theme grown-up and pretty.

We found our basket at Home Goods, similar here.

No Easter table is complete without jellybeans!! By displaying them in clear jars, we’re able to add to the color of the display. We also filled the base with grass, so we didn’t need to use quite so many jellybeans.

Since we have cases of jellybeans here at Café Pierrot, we used large half-gallon mason jars. You’ll probably want to use smaller jars or more filler if you do not have access to so many beans 🙂

Three of each cookie fills out the display tray perfectly, while giving room for each design to shine.

This Lemon Chiffon cake is beautiful, and I can’t imagine a better centerpiece for the table. To give it some height on the table, we used a wood crate from Michaels and a white cake stand.

And of course, we wouldn’t leave without some printable signs for your display! We’re using the same binder clip technique mentioned in the St. Patrick’s Day post. Instead of gold clips, we used white and pink to match the theme.
