A rustic, purple dessert table

We are bringing the pretty back to Eat Drink Pretty today thanks to this beautiful dessert table submitted by Erin of Erin Bell Photography.

This table is full of the most stunning desserts and it is sure to inspire you for future events. An old dresser, a pair of white curtains and a few random platters and you can achieve this look.

The gorgeous centerpiece looks like wild flowers, freshly picked.
This cake is amazing!  I love the ruffly look.  I know this is still far away, and trust me, I don't want my baby girl growing up too fast but, I can totally picture this cake at her 1st birthday party, the ruffles matching a pretty white ruffly dress that she could be wearing.

And now for some close-ups of  these little beauties.  I want to eat them all.   Purple truffle goodness.   Pretty fabric garland.
I love the little birdies that were incorporated and the birch tree stump stands.   I have no idea how this cake was frosted but I love this look.  I have no doubt this will be pinned a lot and added to all those yummy cake/dessert boards on Pinterest.  Speaking of Pinterest, you can follow me as well as pin any photo from my posts (you have to be in the individual post and not just the home page, and then you will see the "pin it" button).  I think I have a newfound love of the color purple at seeing this dessert table.  Thanks so much to Erin for sharing!

  5. I really love the ombre cake. Here is a tutorial that I found for the inside of the cake (I'm sure you could apply the same principles to the outside).
