Guest Dessert Table Feature

We’re busy bees working away at Amy Atlas Events today. We’re baking and crafting for a photo shoot, jamming out proposals, and editing our first ever vlog (don’t expect much – we’re amateurs on the video front). I’ll show some behind-the-scenes later today, but in the meantime I have a beautiful guest dessert table to share with you from Petite Bouches. Veronica of Petite Bouches emailed us to tell us that she was inspired by our business. Veronica tried out a dessert table and it is so charming. I adore the design for this table, which was inspired by a beautiful yet simple wallpaper design. I also love those gorgeous cookies and the favor boxes.

A few tips from the dessert table designer for all…
(1) When you are using macarons, try using smaller platters to pile them up. They are meant to be petite and lovely so give them a small spot on the table and replenish if you need to with pre-made macaron platters. It is also more practical because the second someone grabs one they will all fall out of place.
(2) Be careful with those greens! It is hard to ace green when baking, but Veronica nailed it. Be careful when ordering green candy as well. There are so many shades so try to get the candy companies to email you swatches or send you samples.

Veronica – congrats, you did a fabulous job and I hope to see more of you! Come back later for fun behind-the-scenes…
