Spring Dessert Table With DIY Tips {Guest Feature}

The talented duo {Jen & Karis} of The Sunshine Party Studio recently styled a beautiful dessert table to add to their business portfolio. They shared it with me and I think it’s not only pretty to look at, but also filled with some helpful tips you could use too. The colors are a lovely combination of teal, mint, and coral, and the food selection gives a nod to classic “fair” treats with kettle corn, cotton candy, and circus peanuts.

Check out the details and diy tips below

Tips for creating the look:

  • Painted wooden spindles & disks are attached to one another to create pedestals for cake pops.
  • Painted picture frames are used as “trays” to hold bottles of lemonade and bags of kettle corn.
  • Ribbon details are added to the sleek cake design, to give a little extra pizazz.
  • Accordion fan rosettes are made from scrapbook paper & paper bags, and hung as a backdrop.
  • Cotton candy is placed in individual containers for easy grabbing.
  • Painted stands and boxes add height to the display, while apothecary jars add classic charm.

  1. Love the popcorn bags!

  2. love the bottles used for the lemonade! Where did you get them or what were they before repurposed? great idea for the trays too!!

    • I’ve seen those bottles before, but can’t remember where. Maybe World Market/Cost Plus?? I think they come with lemonade inside.
