Christmas Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions

It seems as though those women down under really have an eye for beautiful things. I love the fresh color palette used for this guest dessert table by Suzanna of Mon Tresor.  We’re using this palette for a holiday project we’re working because it adds a modern flair to the expected red and green palette.  For Suzanna, the color palette was inspired by the beautiful hanging hand painted wooden birds which Suzanna purchased from a store in Sydney.  I love that beautiful buttercream cake, the candy canes in the milk jars, and the vertical height created with tall candlesticks and apothecary jars.  The table is simple, but beautiful. Great job, Suzanna!
