Ahhhh.... It's Springtime in New York. Love is in the air, and on Saturday, April 12th, the weather was perfect for a wedding! Blue skies, sunny and 70 degrees.
I loved putting together the Cookie Bar for John and Justin's NYC wedding celebration. For the table design, we wanted to keep it what I started calling "masculine Springtime chic" which meant clean lines with glass apothecary jars and wooden display pieces. The dominant colors for the reception were shades of green, from celadon through moss to hunter, with pops of sunny yellow being provided by the daffodil centerpieces. For the desserts, we kept a neutral palette with yellow French macarons and lemon meringue tarts adding a touch of color.
It was a delight to put together a sweets table that both coordinated with their palette and satisfied their palates.
The Cookie Bar menu: miniature Chocolate Whoopie Pies, Lena (rosemary sugar cookies), Susanna (oatmeal wafers studded with crystallized ginger), buttercup yellow French macarons lightly brushed with gold dust and filled with a rich dark chocolate ganache, Mary (traditional chocolate chip cookies), Miriam ("linzer" spice cookie sandwiches filled with raspberry jam, featuring a heart cut-out), Mexican wedding cookies, and miniature lemon meringue tarts
