This event was for a very special little man, my dear friend’s baby Michael. His christening was a truly special celebration for his family and I was honoured to be able to fill his dessert table with cakes and sweets for our sweet Michael!
I often collaborate with some of Melbourne’s most talented stylists in creating beautiful dessert tables for christenings. I had the pleasure of collaborating with the lovely and talented Thetis Sardo of Sooti Events for this pretty and elegant display to celebrate the christening of little Paris.
A sweet celebration designed around a gorgeous colour palette of blue, latte and white. A hand cut quatrefoil pattern features around the bottom tier and a hand made pair of sugar converse sneakers adorn the top of the cake.
I was honoured to take my place amongst Australia’s premier cake artists, stylists and photographers to make my contribution to Australia’s Sweetest Morning Tea. (ASMT) I was paired with the lovely Belinda from Styled by Belle and our work was beautifully photographed by Lee Bird Photography. Our submission is called “Waters Edge Dreamtime”. Rich blues and coppers symbolise our large rugged island nation. Our land made up of lustrous tones of orange earth and our amazing island surrounded by deep blue water. Styled By Belle’s inspiration was to play homage to Modern Australia utilising the textural elements of rock and water. The stunning landscape that frames every vignette is one of true Australian beauty – with sandstone rock walls and a pebble rimmed waters edge.
A sweet christening table for little Adam. The theme centred around the gorgeous invitations designed by Style Me Gorgeous. The little elephant holding a balloon has featured in many christenings as it seems no one can resist its charm! So cute!
It’s a rare and beautiful thing to be trusted implicitly with your client’s vision for their event. It is especially humbling when these events mark major milestones in a family’s journey through life. I have had the privilege of creating bespoke cakes for the Vardakis family for 5 years now..
