Burlap & Lace

Every time I put a dessert table together I think to myself, this one is one of my favorites. Then the next table comes along and I think the same thing. They can’t all be my favorite, but this particular burlap and lace table I did for a recent wedding ranks pretty high on the list.

I met with the bride about a month before her wedding to talk about her vision for the dessert table. She was a little unsure of what she wanted, which is my favorite because that usually means the bride is open to my ideas. Everything I suggested she liked. Score!

    Someone else said it already, but stunning is such an appropriate description! Just lovely. Did you make the poms as well? I love the use of book paper. I make book paper poms, wreaths etc. and sell them on etsy. ;-)

    Hi Jenny, I found you through Pinterest & I had so much fun clicking "Older Posts" over & over as I looked at your blog. What talent – not only in baking beautiful food, but in the breathtaking presentation & in the amazing photography. I am thoroughly impressed! Thanks for publishing your inspiring work.
