Hey party peeps! Dessert Carts are all the rage right now and are popping up in parties, showers and weddings everywhere! I’m so excited to announce that I will be featuring a few of my favorite parties styled by some talented party peeps from time to time on my blog. Today we’re kicking off our Guest Feature series with a VALENTINE’S DAY DESSERT CART styled by the fabulous Amy of A Lively Affair! I first met Amy at the BASH Conference a few years ago and knew right away that this girl was on fire with ambition and would have her party business up and running in no time. And do that she did! I’m so proud of her and how far she has come and would love for you guys to support her by following her to keep her motivated to keep on creating FABULOUS parties!

VALENTINE’S DAY DESSERT CART!
Sweet Stations and Dessert Carts are all the rage, so I was really lucky to pick up this cart off Craigslist. Formerly a well loved flower cart, I sanded the chipped creamy finish down and followed with a coat of Rust-Oleum high gloss white paint to restore my new hostess cart to it’s pristine glory. I knew I had to create a Valentine Sweet Station for it’s debut, so a new awning using a bold red and white stripe fabric from Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft stores was created by my very talented friend Hilarie with Little Stitch Studio.
No Valentine’s Day spread is complete until all the treats have arrived! Delicate hearts adorned the layered chocolate cake covered in white fondant by Cakelicious who also provided the yummy cupcakes finished off with dainty white candy flowers. Decorated cookies are one of my favorite items for any celebration and Cookies by Design in Virginia Beach always does a fantastic job making my vision a reality. Aren’t they gorgeous…not to mention super yummy too!
Decorative elements like “X” and “O” balloons, lively washi tape and paper straws for the glass milk bottles, red gingham ribbon and the most darling Valentine’s Day card by WH Hostess pull the look together.
I look forward to the variety of ways our sweet hostess cart can be incorporated into my client’s events and celebrations! XOXO
