Hello! Today’s post is a follow up of the Black and White Chanel inspired party that we did for Charmaine, who turned 30! Following on the famous quote of Coco Chanel ” A girl should be two things: Classy and fabulous”, we aimed to deliver that very essence of Chanel into this birthday. We brought in gorgeous fabric and lace to use as the backdrop, while keeping the confections as classy and beautiful at the same time. For the cake, instead of the typical sugar flowers, I chose to go with the edible wafer paper for a change. And i must say, its a great medium for flowers, however, it does need extra care during transport. Surprisingly, this Chanel party is the only party thus far that I have received the most compliments coming from men! yes, it must be the combination of the power of black color and the fact that Charmaine has extremely nice friends!
I was really glad that everyone enjoyed the dessert table and this is the note that I received from the birthday girl, the following day:
“Hi Angie, many thanks to you for the lovely setup last night. Not only did it look great but it all tasted really good, esp the birthday cake! Beautiful, red velvet, truly. Everything went without a hitch and there were lots of compliments on the desserts. Hope to have you at our next event whenever that might be ~ Charmaine”
