I was lucky to be asked to be a part of Callie V Photography’s I heart Minnesota lake life photo shoot a few months back. The concept was all about nautical details, inspired by a San Pelligrino Limonata bottle. The photo shoot was beautiful and was recently featured on Style Me Pretty! I’m doing a two-part feature so be sure to come back tomorrow to see the adorable bride and groom and all the gorgeous details.
Callie shared this inspiration board and I went to work. My vision for the dessert table was to keep it clean and simple with delicious, lemony treats and navy accents.
I incorporated lemons into the table by submerging them in water in clear, cylinder vases. Easy, affordable and it created a huge impact.
I made lemon curd tartlets with a dollup of whipped cream and lemon zest and placed them on a cake stand for height.
I cheated and used a store-bought lemon cake mix to make cupcakes but topped them with homemade lemon buttercream, accented with a lemon drop.
Callie asked that I incorporate s’mores into the table to fit within the lakeside theme so I bundled them inside a souffle cup and tied with a yellow ribbon.
I also made mini lemon cupcakes with a bit of lemon zest for color.
I was really happy with how the table turned out and have to thank my sister for helping me a ton that day! She kept me calm while I fretted/stressed about melting buttercream and sticky gumballs due to the heat. In the end, everything worked out!
Thanks to Callie V for including me in this gorgeous shoot. Tomorrow’s post will include the tablescape, lemonade/cocktail stand and a cute bride and groom!
