The puffs of white cotton candy were a last minute addition but so critical to the final tablescape outcome

Cloud Print Tablecloth

For the tablecloth, I used cloud printed fabric from Spoonflower here. You can order size based on the size of your table.

Cloud print Umbrella

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.

Chefanie Caviar Meringes

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

Chefanie 24k Edible Gold Flakes

Cook fish in parchment paper ("en papillote"); it comes out of the oven puffed like a cloud. On the inside is a clean lean white fish.

Chefanie Apple Pavlova

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
