BRIDAL SHOW @ Sitella Winery


On Sunday the 8th of July i along with other vendors, had the enjoyable pleasure of setting up a table showcasing my Creations....for the annual Swan Valley Bridal Day.

A rather crisp and chilly start greeted us,  as we drove through the Swan Valley -  yet never to be disappointed with what each Season brings on this particular drive , it was a silent pleasure sitting in a warm car looking out across the bare vineyards ... paddocks and further on to the Range. 

On arriving i met with Eve - Sitella's Manageress - what  a gem of a Lady.
Honestly - nothing is too much trouble for this Lady -  and her eye for detail is second to none.
One feels totally relaxed as Eve with her beautiful manner walks you through the where's and how's of the day ahead.
With crisp white table cloths laid out, i set too placing my Creations and table decorations om place...

My creations for the day were.....

A Two Tier Cake with wide alternating white and ivory stripes - a plague and flowers. Each tier standing 6 inches tall - all set on an ivory cake board....edged with an ivory ribbon.
The bottom tier  being 2 x 3 inch tiers would feed 130 guests - served coffee style portion
The top tier being 2 x 3 inch  tiers would feed 80 guests - served coffee style portions
In total =210 portions 

A Two Tier  Perriwinkle and Wedgewood Cake - with touches of lilac through the leaves and dusted on the larger flowers.  A pretty cake showing that one doesn't always have to have a white or ivory cake as a wedding cake.
Standing 10 inches in height and 10 inches round - consisting of 3 layers.
This cake would feed 190 - 200 guests - served as coffee style protions.

An assortment of Mini Cupcakes ...sitting in gorgeous little wrappers.
Ivory lids with Wedgwood flowers -  Pastel Pink Flowers - Mint Green Flowers - Lemon Flowers Warm Brown Flowers and Ivory Flowers.

I had the opportunity to use four delightful little Clouches - which suit these little creations perfectly.

Again i would like to take a moment to thank Eve for her wonderful organising skills - and attention and care shown to all vendors on the day ...the day was a huge success due to all that you did and your ever so friendly Staff - Thankyou.  ..................  Sitella Winery, such a perfect setting for that Special Day...



  1. Hi, Maxine! I've been considering doing a bridal show and your post is inspiring me. Lovely, as always.

  2. Thankyou Linda doe your very complimentry words...
    Yes, i had a wonderful day showcasing my creations and talking to customers.
    I did take photos of my Table setup but due to the early mornng start and greyish skies looming - there wasn't alot of natural light for my photos to post.So on arriving home i set up my cakes and took the photos i have published.

    Yes, do create some cakes/cupcakes showing your talents and display them at a Bridal Show....
    I thoroughly enjoyed the day - took my time explaing what my Business is about and what i offer.

    Best piece of advice ...pack your business cards - then pack that many again. Make sure all your cakestands are sparkling clean - add flowers to your table - they add that personnel touch plus soften the display. But most all, be excited and just be yourself..... and you too will have a wonderful day.

    Again thank you for your lovely post.
