Moroccan dessert table - Amy Atlas

Amy Atlas recently sent over some images of the gorgeous dessert tables that she recently created for Brides magazine… pretty amazing, right?!!

All 3 table are fantastic, but I’m feeling especially drawn to the Chocolate Spice design (above) because it feels refreshing & unique… everything from the dessert flavors & color palette to the serveware & decorative accents ties in so well with the theme!

Chocolate Spice Dessert 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.”

Modern Chevron dessert table - Amy Atlas

Modern Chevron Dessert 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 worked with Kate Sullivan to create a modern chevron cake, which we placed on zig zag vessels (made from candlesticks).  Other great treats included passion fruit marshmallows, chevron patterned cupcakes and citrus meringue buttercream sandwiches.”

Vintage Dessert Table
“We incorporated aqua and magenta birds and blooms throughout the design of this table. We made “feed sacks” (from vintage fabric) and homemade preserve favors, and a bird and bloom bunting banner.

We also 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.”

I love the Chocolate Spice table; my friend and I were planning an “exotic” type engagement party for another friend and we were leaning towards a Morrocan feel. The colors are so incredibly rich and the lanterns are to die for! Thanks for sharing this.
