Today I am thrilled to share some fantastic inspiration for a Rustic Charm Wedding Dessert Table & some tips on how to create your own Dessert Table.
We all know that adding lots of DIY touches to your wedding day is popular amongst couples getting married.
It is not only cost saving but adds a real personal touch to your special day.
Dessert Tables were featured in a big way last year and in 2014 we are only going to see more and more of these gorgeous tables.
I pass you over to Melissa Welby of The Sweet Hostess to tell you about a recent inspiration shoot…
“The starting point for our Shoot was the amazing rustic inspired dresser, and with that we chose our colour theme which was pantone colour of the year ‘Radiant Orchid’ along with shades of light green and silver.”
“To create the backdrop we used paper doilies in a soft shade of green which worked perfectly with the purple and silver props and flowers of the dessert table.”
“By making the doilies into fan shapes you can create a very cheap but beautiful back drop.”
“To add lots of charm we added lots of vintage silverware which added texture and interest to the table.”
“The beauty of creating a rustic theme is that often mismatched props and crockery look wonderful together along with different shades of your theme colours.”
“To add some fun and colour to the table we added bright and colourful honeycomb balls in purples and silvers.”
“Even though we have gone with a rustic theme with muted tones it also works with just adding a pop of colour.”
“You can do this in such a subtle way by adding bright cupcake cases.”
“The flowers is what really finishes the table of and adds that touch of sophistication.”
“We started with some soft eucalyptus foliage and the key ingredient – radiant orchids!”
“Roses in tonal shades and pretty wax flowers completed the look.”
“The flowers needed to be pretty and delicate to tie in with this theme.”
Tips on creating your own Wedding Dessert Table:
– What table will you choose? Are you having a vintage style wedding – do you have an antique dresser or table that could be used? An exposed trestle table can actually look quite chic, otherwise find some lovely linen to dress your table.
– Adding flowers to your dessert table adds another dimension to your table. It is the one thing that is quite tricky to achieve on your own – so speak to your Florist to see if they can arrange something for you and that will of course match your wedding flowers.
– The beauty of a rustic themed is that you can easily add in props and crockery to try and create a uniformed look. Make sure you add in height, perhaps add in large vases with flowers in the middle or feature your wedding cake in the centre to add height and drama.
Thanks so much to the team for sharing their extraordinary creativity and also their tips on how to create your own dessert table.
