Photo Shoot : "It's Almost Time" Bridal Shower Dessert Table

I can't believe it, but it's time to start showcasing the 4th round of the Wedding Vendor Challenges. For the remainder of this week, I'll be showcasing amazing inspiration for you to use at bridal showers, weddings or any other party you have planned. This months color palette was periwinkle blue, mango orange and lemon yellow. And, like last month, I asked vendors to create a bridal shower tablescape with a dessert display and just like the other challenges, there will be at least one DIY provided.

This lovely photo shoot was designed by Pamela of Party Starters and photographed by Maria of Studio Sister Photography. I love the backdrop of the shelves filled with flower pots from Creek Side Gardens for this dessert table.

Pamela explains the design behind this photo shoot . . . "This dessert table was created with 6-8 guests in mind. A simple variety of goodies which included iced sugar cookies, mini cheesecakes and Passion Fruit French macarons is really all that is needed for a small gathering. Beverages included sparkling water, orange juice and fruit punch which could all be mixed together if desired. Fun flag straws in each glass make drinks a bit more festive. Flags also adorned flower arrangements giving them a whimsical feel."

And, a bit more from Pamela about her ideas for this shoot . . . "After guests are finished with their goodies they can fill out "advice for the bride" note cards and place them on a custom message board as a gift for the bride to be. Before your guests leave, have them take a cake slice box from the Ruffled Cake Favor set and fill them with wrapped chocolates or other goodies. Not only is this favor set a great conversation piece but also a useful decoration."
