Foreign Cinema in San Francisco’s edgy Mission neighborhood is definitely one of our favorite spots in the city. This past fall, we had the opportunity to work with a lovely couple who chose to host their reception there.

The Romantic Foreign Cinema Courtyard
During our initial tasting, Lauren explained that their interests included writing, biology, Shakespeare and of course cake pops! She wanted these elements, along with her rich fall colors to really come through on her dessert table. So we got to work! Exploring thrift shops for old books, test tubes, etc. we found our props for the dessert display that would come to be one of our favorites of 2012.
Custom Signs to Direct Guests
Book pages cascade of the cake pop display as a table runner.
We contacted Foreign Cinema’s favorite florist Natalie Bowen to create a few bundles of flowers to decorate our three tiered natural wood cake pop stand. We loved how the rich orange flowers brought out the burnt orange sparkle on our pops! She was even able to match the bridesmaid’s bouquet and dress.
Oranges, corals, and golds set the tone for the evening.
Natalie Bowen designed flowers bundled at each tier’s edge to resemble a traditional cake.

Books, florals, coral, and a framed butterfly as props for a literary/biology themed affair!. Cake pops under a glass cloche add a little sparkle!

A full view from the front of the table, lots of yummy cake pops!!!

Congrats to the happy couple! May your life be full of happiness and cake pops!
