Phoenix Support Group + Thanksgiving Dessert Table

Nina Spitzer founded the Central Phoenix Celiac Disease Foundation Support Group more than 11 years ago.  I was honored to be invited to provide the dessert table for the Thanksgiving Feast on November 12th, 2011.   Mini Pumpkin pies, and the cutest little Apple pies with little hearts made out of the flakiest, buttery crust you've ever tasted graced the table.  But the biggest hit was the Hand Pies filled with gooey cherry filling and sprinkled with Cane Sugar for a sweet little crunch.  Fresh real whipped cream topped off the evening along with good company and lots of gluten free, delicious food.

My favorite part of this table are the gorgeous velvet pumpkins I found at the Believe Boutique a few weeks ago.  From oohpumpkins, they are adorable little velvet bundles with real pumpkin stems attached.  The vintage step ladder was a surprise centerpiece that gave the table some height and curiosity.  The linen is custom made from a Laura Ashley pattern.  Nina actually took this picture and I would like to thank her for her support which has meant so much to me over the last year.  Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

  1. That wooden ladder is such a charming touch! Perfect, too, for adding height and "display" space. :-)
