Looking for a little party decor inspiration? Look no further than the portfolio of event planner extraordinaire Amy Atlas in New York who specializes in dessert tables — a growing party trend that I think is just great. Amy recently created these dessert tables for Brides magazine and she has so generously detailed each below along with some “behind the scenes footage” which I loved seeing. I hope that you enjoy them!
Vintage Table — We incorporated aqua and magenta birds and blooms throughout the design of this table. We made feed sacks by sewing vintage fabric, made homemade preserve favors, and created a bird and bloom bunting banner. We included a birds and bloom ruffled wedding cake, nostalgic candy such as salt water taffy, maltballs, ribbon candy, an old fashioned buttercream cake and dahlia cupcakes. We also made favor boxes with handmade fabric dahlias.
Chocolate Spice Table — We incorporated spiced chili and naga curry infused truffles, rosewater malban, pyramid-shaped chocolates, sesame candy and a macaron tower, all on bronze and rattan vessels filled with whole spices. For decorative elements, we included Moroccan lanterns and a pussy willow branch display. We also sewed together burlap fabric to create spice sacks to give the table a “Moroccan-market” feel and filled up Moroccan tea glasses with spiced hot chocolate and cinnamon sticks.
Citrus Chevron Table — For this table, we incorporated a bright citrus color palette of tangerine, lemon and lime with a modern chevron zig zag pattern. We created a ribbon garland, clementine centerpiece, as well as chevron patterned popcorn cups and favor bags. We included a modern chevron cake, which we placed on zig zag vessels. Other great treats included passion fruit marshmallows, chevron patterned cupcakes and citrus meringue buttercream sandwiches.
