Sarah Gunn: Wall Candy


Art-Inspired Dessert Table Display

a yummy display for your guests

It's no secret that I am a huge fan of David Dawson's art. His piece Muskoka Autumn is just about the prettiest thing ever, don't you agree? It is just such a happy painting. You can find more of his fabulous work here.

I thought it would be fun to use this happy piece to inspire party decor. If looking at the art makes me so feel this way, surely decorating with those colours will have the same effect on guests.

I worked with Christine from Mollycake to come up with yummy {and ever so pretty} treats in shades of pink and orange for a dessert table. The table itself is actually a lovely vintage sideboard from one of my favourite shops, My Back Shed, in Oakville. I wish I had a better photo of it but the DIY demo table was set up in front of it.

The treats included two gorgeous cakes, macarons {my new favourite}, strawberry marshmallows, and meringues. 

It all looked to pretty to eat. But I did. A lot. I am now a macaron addict! 

PS: I made the no-sew runner myself, just the same way I made these fabric backers for my bookcase.

PPS: Those pink and orange cake stands? I made those too. So fun and so easy! Click here to find out how to make your own
