Anthropologie Inspired Guest Dessert Table

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions

Blair Blair Britt Events sent over pictures of this vintage inspired guest dessert table and I knew immediately that I had to share it with you all. Blair created this table for a wedding she recently coordinated. The couple’s wedding had was infused with an anthropologie-esque style and the dessert table {and wedding style} was nothing short of spectacular. A few words from Blair…

“A few months prior to the wedding, while figuring out the design concept for their dessert table, I stumbled upon a beat up old desk in a local antique shop….and I had a feeling it was destined to be a part of the design for their dessert table. We gave it a little TLC and a new coat of paint and it worked great as the centerpiece of the design. The dessert table offered of course, a yummy wedding cake, pecan pie tartlets, cheesecake petits fours, mini brownies, cake lollipops, and cream puffs. Due to the eclectic nature of the design, we had the freedom to mix and match glass and ceramic cake plates in white and teal, as well as other interesting containers and vintage hankies in the design. Also, we added a pedestal with a cloche to the newlyweds’ sweetheart table so that they had their very own sweets display right at their finger tips!”

I’ll be back again with a close-up of that gorgeous ribbon backdrop and the how-to steps so you all can try this yourself!
Blair – I don’t have any dessert table designer tips for you on this one. You nailed it!
