Dinner on Cloud 9
Cloud print is everywhere these days, from runway shows, to art, to beauty. Here's how to set an on-trend Cloud 9-themed table for baby showers, bridal showers, or dinners at home.
A cloud printed tablecloth elevates an ordinary table to Cloud 9.
The puffs of white cotton candy were a last minute addition but so critical to the final tablescape outcome
For the tablecloth, I used cloud printed fabric from Spoonflower here. You can order size based on the size of your table.
Our blue and white napkins here.
The menu for the evening was painted by Chefanie. See more here.
You can make or buy white blobs of cotton candy. Here's a source for the latter.
I discovered these cloud-shaped plates at Jean-Georges in Manhattan. They are from Serax!
Chefanie Yiddish cocktail napkins match the evening's color palette.
To transport guests to Cloud 9, every detail has to be a rocket ship, including the food. Savory meringues, sweet pavlovas, parchment paper bubbles all resemble the sky puffs.
At the end of the meal, of course, we showered guests with cotton candy hanging from a cloud-printed umbrella. See the tutorial on how to create a serving umbrella here.
For our dinner on Cloud 9, Chefanie whipped up some savory meringues -- with caviar on top! This was a fun easy 2-ingredient hors d'oeuvres that delighted guests. Recipe here.
There's magic in egg whites -- and their ability to transform color and size with the whisk of a few bent pieces of metal. And when they are baked at a low temperature to become meringues, there's nothing like it. We drizzled ours with goat milk caramel and topped with spiced apple slices. Recipe here.
For the evening's signature drink, how about something white and fresh like this "White Lady" cocktail. Recipe here.
