An Impressionist Dessert Table

We love dessert tables for a couple of reasons.  They are a great way to get guests up and mingling following dinner (reason one).  Reason two: a dessert table can really add to the overall decor of the event, enhancing your themes and colors and looking pretty.  And that last reason is that they are just so fun to design.  Full of personal details there are so many design options.

This summer we did a table inspired by the bride’s love of impressionism at Earhart Manor, which is Northern European country home in Ann Arbor now owned by Concordia University.  The cake served as a focal point on which the rest of the design was based,everything from the cookie and backdrop colors to the placement of  stands.  It also brought together a couple important elements of the wedding: impressionism, gold (done in a foil technique), and a topper to match the bride’s fascinator. impressionist cake

 The macarons and decorative cookies in shades of blue helped bring needed color to the rest of the table.
