Garden Party Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions

This Garden Party dessert table was sent to us by Louisa Shippman of Lou Lou Events down under.  Louisa created this table for a 50th birthday party.  We love how the trunk of that beautiful old tree framed the dessert table.  Louisa handpicked rustic desserts like honey spiced sponge, dusted truffles, and cannolis from local vendors and found lush hydrangea to complement the outdoor space.  Adding a few hydrangea to the top of the sponge is a simple way to dress up a dessert.  This is perfect for a summer garden party.

    • Thanks so much Beth for your lovely words x

      The little dishes are actually made of porcelain (bisque I think) that I picked up on one of my shopping adventures!

      I found them in a Japanese grocery store, they are actually meant to be used to serve soy sauce etc but I thought they were the perfect size for bite size treats, so I bought a stack of them (they only cost about 50c each from memory)



      • Hello Louisa!
        Thank you for this FUN information! Oh my, what a very creative way to display delecate, bite size treats just like on your dessert table! C’est magnifique! 🙂
