Even though Christina D’Angelo of Pearls and Spice was inspired by “Paris in Springtime” when she created this charming Vintage-Chic Paris Dessert Table, I think you’ll agree that the beautiful desserts and table styling displayed here can be appreciated any time of year!
In addition to the great use of chalkboard accents, (which is always a plus in my book!), one of the first things that struck me about these photos were the incredibly detailed and realistic flowers on the cakes… can you believe those are made out of sugar?! And I love that she included such a great mix of flower sizes and styles to create those beautiful, cascading clusters. Bon travail, Christina!
PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:
- Open vintage frame backdrop adorned with prints of photos taken on Paris streets
- Incredibly realistic, handcrafted sugar flowers on each cake
- Pretty mini pastries like flower-topped mousse cups, lemon tarts and French macarons… of course!
- Hand-painted, chalkboard-style center tier on the tallest cake + chalkboard Patisserie menu
PARTY DETAILS, as told by Christina…
I had such a great time styling this table. The cakes were hand painted and adorned with sugar flowers that were crafted petal by petal. Including desserts such as meringues and lemon tarts that are typically found in the cafes of Paris made it feel like you were actually there!
The antique picture frame, used as the background, had amazing prints strung across it which were the inspiration for the entire table. These prints were taken in the streets of Paris by Nichole Robertson and are part of her “Paris in Color” collection.
I love to add cut flowers to a dessert table, it just brings it to another level.
Of course, no table would be complete without the addition of french macarons which just happen to fit right into the theme (really, when do they not fit?!?).
