There is something special about dressing up and dishing out desserts for the kiddos for Valentine's Day!  Shaundra, of Cherished Affairs, shares a beautiful dessert table with us that she styled for a Valentine photography party.  Desserts were served while each guest had their fashion photo shoot with fabulous photographer Danielle McCann.  Perfect to adapt for teens and tweens and also for a grown-up girls-night-out or daytime luncheon, this party is fashionable and fun!

Simple chocolate mousse (or pudding) is taken to a new level when served in a fancy glass and topped with strawberries and shaved coconut.

Shaundra also found a miniature dresser that she painted and used as a display...

Gorgeous cookies, macarons and pastries displayed on a tiered stand add a fancy touch to the dessert table, too!

Shaunda had matching cake pops in red and gold...

A creative cake combines fashion and dessert in one!

Shaundra also served lunch for the guests...chicken salad, a variety of muffins, fruit and cheese.  She kept it simple and presented it beautifully!  I especially love the fruit and cheese displays.


What lovely party styling ideas!  Presentation is such a fun part of designing a party, and Shaundra shares great ideas for making your next party even more beautiful!

The photography gave the desert look tastier.
