Modern Preppy Dessert Table {Guest Feature}

Pink and green may be the signature “preppy” colors, but the blue stripes in this Modern Preppy dessert table take me back to the early 80’s and those infamous blue striped oxford Polo shirts! EVERYBODY had one!

This dessert table takes “preppy” in a different direction – a more masculine direction so to speak. It’s sleek and modern with just a few items, but each one is cleverly displayed. I think this would work well for a graduation party or birthday party.

The paper items in this shoot help to bring forth the preppy feel with there mixture of blue, white, and green. Blue and white bakers twine ties up cookies, and grosgrain ribbon is used to attach escort cards on the display board. Those are reminiscent of the wide ribbon belts we used to wear!

Lots of pretty little details to help make a party special!

    I’m loving the milkshake idea! Don’t suppose you would know where I could get bottles like that?
