Three days ago we had the opportunity to design a few desserts and set up a small table for the pre-wedding party at Bloomingdale’s on 59th St and third Avenue in NYC. What an amazing experience! It was so nice to meet people in the industry and also interact with future clients! I just love walking around the bridal floor, I feel like a kid in a candy store, surrounded by so many beautiful trays and platters I want them all! I was able to use their trays and raisers to showcase our desserts. When we first started negotiating the details for the set up they asked for something bold and bright. The first thing that came into my mind were this years summer season’s most popular colors; yellow and pink. Of course right there I had the chance to finally design a table with the super popular pineapple and flamingo theme. The Bloomingdales first response was no. They wanted something glamorous and elaborate. It did not take much persuasion after I showed them my plan and vision for the design. I have to admit it felt so good read the email that said, “Never mind. Our PR approved your idea and we trust you”. It made my day , maybe my whole week. They were very happy with the results and I was very happy to finally have my flamingo moment!
Here are some pictures of the desserts we displayed.
