Peachy Keen Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions

118 Peachy Keen Guest Dessert Feature

We love this feature. This submission was sent to us by Susana of citrusandorange in Portugal. We’ve featured Susana before here and here. She created this table for her daughter’s 9th birthday party. Deciding on the color palette at the last minute, she browsed Sweet Designs for a little inspiration.  Susana knew that she wanted peonies on her table but could not find them in Portugal this time year.  She enlisted Diane of DK Designs to create soft clay flowers (yes, those flowers are made of clay) to accent the cake and the table.  Diane also made the beautiful coral poppies.  The cake and the cupcakes were made by Francisca of Cupcake.  We love the white hobnail bowls and vases, and the clean lines of the platters, mirror, and buffet. Simple and sweet!

      Beth!!! Long time no see! ;) Are you still having problems with commenting on the blog? :) Thank you so much for your dear and kind words!


      (P.S.: I wish I could have photoshopped the lamp – it’s beautiful, but I’d rather it was out of the picture. I couldn’t take the pic any other way, it’s hard to photo mirrors!)

        So very good to hear from you again my dear…guess what? Your photos are as perfect as your desert table & the gorgeous lamp is perfectly located so I wouldn’t change it a bit! :-)

        Yes, sadly I’m still having difficulties in sending comments to your blog. :-( I always want to comment on your blog. I adore all the beautiful floral designs & vessels that you utilize. I personally think that your photos are “magazine” worthy. So sweet, classy, shabby-chic, beautiful – truly lovely to the eyes. I’m in love with all the color palette. :-)

        Adeus até a próxima vez!
