This was for a special client's annual Halloween Monster Bash. They really go all out for their biggest event of the year. Guests were dancing, drinking, and eating, from the second they walked through the door, til the second they left. The best part, the hosts called The Treat Table (again!) for the dessert display. The invitation was of a moon, cemetary, bony hands... so we played up on the cemetary theme. The menu consisted of the hostess's favorite items, including red velvet cake shots, apple pie cheesecake, pumpkin cheesecake, apple spice praline crunch cake shots, chocolate macarons, white chocolate covered oreos, chocolate caramel latte cake shots, and cake pops of different flavors. The client also asked for some savory items, on a different smaller table which included tomato basil mozzarella skewers with a balsamic reduction, paprika cream cheese cucumber sandwiches, and melted brie with fig jelly cups. All in all, the reception we received was so great, the client booked us again for next year!

The Treat Table did a Vintage Barbie theme for a 7 year old birthday party. It was a small gathering, so we kept it simple and sweet. In keeping with the pink that is Barbie, the cake was a lemon zest cake with raspberry butter cream, lemon cake pops, raspberry oat bars, and strawberry ice cream parfaits. Topped off with pink lemonade, and for something salty, Chex mix. The vintage barbie theme idea started with incorporating beautiful prints by Project Runway's Robert Best, with the Think Pink scene of the classic Audrey Hepburn/Fred Astaire movie, Funny Face.
