|Sherlock Cake Pop rough draft.|
Stay tuned for more details (and much later, for the actual party itself), but these rough drafts of cake pops and invitations give you an idea of the general mood I'm going for: English, tweedy, dark, masculine. The party will be in the Grand Reading Room, which is light and bright, but also lined with wood shelving and beautiful books. I'm imaging dark tablecloths with brown plaid runners or toppers (maybe just wrapping paper, to cut costs), with lots of Holmes-ian accessories styled in little vignettes: typewriters, violins, magnifying glasses, scientific instruments. . . Can you tell I'm excited!?
