A Romantic Yellow & Gray Dessert Table

A Romantic Yellow & Gray Dessert Table

This lovely, VINTAGE-STYLE DESSERT TABLE by Katie and Alice from KaLice Events was originally created for a wedding, but would be beautiful for an engagement party or vintage-inspired bridal shower as well!

50 handmade paper rosettes made for a stunning backdrop (great DIY idea for any theme!), and pretty accents like shimmery butterflies, lace doilies, love birds, and hanging crystals looked stylish & romantic in a palette of yellow, white and warm gray.

PARTY DETAILS, as told by Alice

“The bride approached KaLice Events about designing a dessert table for her wedding {in Georgia}.  She’s a big fan of doilies and wanted us to create a vintage-style dessert table in the colors of yellow, grey and white.

In order to incorporate the bride’s favorite dolies into our design, we decided to go with paper rosettes (aka lollies) as the backdrop for this dessert table.  We did a mix & match using dollies and vintage looking paper and handmade over 50 paper rosettes in various sizes!

To go along with the Butterfly theme that the bride had used for her table number design and wedding favors, we added some “butterflies” as accent decor on a few of the paper rosettes, and also on the mini cups that held our homemade desserts. The handmade brownie flags are made out of Japanese Washi masking tape, which we adore!  The white dessert stands with hanging crystals – together with the miniature wooden chairs & bird cage – added a distinctive vintage feeling to the entire design, and a doily-adorned banner reading “The Sweet Bar” tied all the details together!

Since there was already a 3-tiered wedding cake at the reception, we focused on an assortment of delicious treats to compliment the cake. The homemade desserts included white/yellow chocolate dipped pretzels, mini red velvet cupcakes, mini brownies with personalized flags, marshmallow pops, macaroons, etc.”
