easter inspiration: a dessert table




When Andrea was here visiting last month, we decided to style a quick photoshoot inspired by spring. Remember those glittery cookies? They turned out mighty cute in bright colors so we used them for this simple dessert table, perfect for upcoming gatherings or Easter celebrations. And yeah, we got a little carried away with the pink and pastels...I guess we're overly enthusiastic about spring. More to share next week!



Creating the dessert table: napkins, pretty dishes, doilies, jars with decorations (like dried flowers), and a basket filled with fabric scraps for eggs. Tissue flowers and extra doilies for above the table. And most importantly, sweets!

I have been obsessed with spring parties lately. I am so excited the baby will be born in the spring so I can do all sort of sweet birthday parties.
