challenge | cakes and cute shoes

Cakes and cute shoes, a party design styled by Jen Campbell of Green Wedding Shoes. I’ve always loved Jen’s design eye, the weddings she showcases are often my absolute favorites. Imagine how thrilled I was to learn that she herself is embarking on a styling career. If this scene is a preview I believe it will be a very successful endeavor for her.

Cakes and cute shoes, a party where your closest friends would all show up to eat scrumptious cake in their most stylish shoes. Fabulously perfect inspiration for the upcoming holiday and I would completely gush over this theme at a spring shower. The bright pink paired with a crisp silver brings a sophisticated feel to a festive party table.

The tablecloth designed by Jenn is a great way to lend a modern clean touch to budget friendly DIY style. The cloth was a clearance deal that would be normally quite plain but when lined with $3 a roll silver duct tape it becomes practically a work of art.

As place settings, the very common chalk bubble is given a clean and modern finish when filled in with hand-sewn silver threading. A lovely and surprising touch! I would imagine them as fabulous custom escort cards for an upcoming wedding. The hand sewing of letters continues onto the EAT sign, backing a perfectly set dessert display that includes a yummy Valentine’s version of the popular rainbow cake, so pretty in red and pink!

  1. Super cute! Lots of pretty ideas!! I love it, but confused – don’t we wait to see all of them to vote? Just want to make sure I pick my fave – but this one is closed to comments after 48 hours? Will they all be posted before then? Love your site!

    agree w/ jenn, how can we vote for a winner if we don’t see the others? can we vote all week?

  3. Simply beautiful and so original! I am going to try to duplicate the cake and some of the ideas for my Valentine dinner next week! Maybe do a handsewn heart instead of EAT. Love this styling.
