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!
