Let’s Be Pen Pals

dessert 5

The main dessert table for our son’s Vintage barefoot wedding was the centrepiece of the whole reception. I used three old doors as the backdrop, with doily bunting draped across them. I used my vintage yellow fabric to make panels for the glass door in the middle, which tied in with the Sweets table, bringing cohesion to the theme. I also used a gorgeous yellow chenille bedspread as the tablecloth. White wooden letters saying SWEET AS brought a touch of fun to the display.

The menu consisted of white chocolate or peanut butter Tim Tam Pops, lemon meringue shots in pretty vintage glasses, vanilla cupcakes, Nutella cheesecake mousse pots, chocolate covered Oreo biscuits and a rustic chunky monkey peanut butter and banana chocolate cake.

For months before the wedding I collected vintage glass salt and pepper shakers which I used as food card holders by wrapping wire around the tops of each.
