SWING Into Spring Sweets Table
May 15, 2011 by 7 Comments
Get ready to SWING into Spring with this pretty dessert table sent to me by Natasha of Fete Fanatic. Natasha designed this table for her event studio space (The Flair Factor) in order to celebrate Spring being in full “Swing.” The addition of the “swing” display makes me giddy with joy!
I love that all the sweets shown here can be homemade or store bought. Great for budget-friendly parties as well as last minute gatherings. This is what Natasha has to say about the tablescape:
“I’m not a graphic designer, so I selected a festive fabric and used it throughout my design… As you can see the theme is Spring’s in Full “Swing”! I accented the sweets table with a vibrant fabric as my starting point. To reflect my theme, I used a serving tray as a “swing”, and hung it using jute twine so it will be elevated above the table. Sitting on the swing were can cakes wrapped with the same fabric used on the table and twine. Fresh rose petals were sprinkled on the swing for a fresh spring feel and to tie in with the centerpiece from the tablescape.
Sweets included assorted gumballs, ribbon candy to compliment the vibrant color palette, strawberry tootsie rolls, lemon heads, lemon tarts, strawberry and vanilla cupcakes, assorted meringues. I embellished the vanilla cupcakes with an edible DIY swirlpop cupcake topper made from marshmallow straws! Last but not least, Lemon flavored water was a must to balance all the sweets on the table! Lemon yellow drinking straws were embellished fabric flags. Of course… the same fabric!”
Thank you so much for sharing your table with us, Natasha. I’m sure everyone will love it as much as I do! And for a coordinating Spring tablescape design visit here.
