Celebrating Michael Aram’s Botanical Leaf Collection with a Marie Antoinette Photo Shoot!

In the words of Marie Antoinette, “Let them eat cake”! I’ve teamed up with Michael Aram for a fun Marie Antoinette themed post in celebration of April's Botanical Leaf Month. 

I received a Botanical Leaf Cake Stand, Cake Knife and 2 Botanical Leaf Tidbit Plates along with desserts from Keremo Cakes. Of course adding champagne to the mix seemed like a natural choice for this Marie Antoinette themed photo shoot.

The Michael Aram Botanical Leaf Collection takes its inspiration from the intricacies of form and texture found in particular types of foliage. Reminiscent of eucalyptus and seagrape, the structure celebrates the twisting branches as much as it does the leaves themselves. 

According to Michael Aram, “The image of leaves and branches is eternal and has some kind of meaning for almost everyone. For me, the motif conjures a sense of freshness and fragility while the materials and craftsmanship speak of something more robust, more human.” 

Symbolism: A single leaf symbolizes happiness. A multitude of leaves symbolizes growth. 

This April, Michael Aram is offering a Botanical Leaf Catchall with a purchase of $150 or more to celebrate Botanical Leaf Month.

Botanical Leaf Reversible Cake/Pie Plate

Keremo Cakes sent over these yummy cupcakes which they decorated with the signature Michael Aram Botanical leaf. They went perfectly with my Botanical Leaf Cake Plate. Keremo Cakes will be opening their doors for the first time this coming May at 18 Union Avenue in Cresskill, NJ.

Keremo Cakes also sent over these delicious chocolate covered treats which I put on my Botanical Leaf Tidbit Plate. 

Botanical Leaf Cake Server

The Botanical Leaf Cake Server was one of the most beautiful serving pieces to cut future cakes with. Like the rest of the collection it's handmade and hammered with cast natural leaf accents. 

In true Marie Antoinette style I concluded the shoot by sampling these heavenly treats with a glass of champagne. Qu'ils mangent de la brioche!
