Southern Sweets Divine Dessert Table

Phoenix Arizona is my home, but I am a Southern girl at heart.  Born and raised in the South, my roots take me back to my grandmother's kitchen and her sewing room.  This dessert table is the realization of my heritage, right down to the tastes. Gracious, glamorous, delicious, and abundant....the epitome of Southern Hospitality. The masculine pinstripe combined with the feminine flowing pale pink skirt merge bride and groom..

 Chocolate and Vanilla Buttermilk Cupcakes with cream cheese frosting were baked in natural parchment paper.  The lace trim at the table was custom dyed to match the pinstripe gray backdrop fabric.  The skirt on  the table is blush pink chiffon with a pink satin underlay, custom made by Angela Saban Design, I wanted to create the feeling of the skirt of a dress, flowing and beautiful.  Sparkling Pink Lemonade in champagne flutes.

Blackberry Tarts, my personal favorite, by Divalicious Catering.  I spent many hours as a child picking these from bushes and suffering the "chiggers" for their deliciousness!
