It’s Kate Landers here, excited to share with you a spring themed dessert table I was asked to design exclusively for Layla Grayce! I am completely smitten with the new Rosanna products, as well as a spectacular new line at Layla Grayce, Pip Studio. This theme and color scheme works beautifully for Easter, but also is perfect for baby & bridal showers, a birthday luncheon or Mother’s Day brunch. All the textures (from linen ruffles to ceramic hobnails) keep it fresh and current, while still maintaining a classic look.

DESIGN INSPIRATION: This dessert table was inspired by the stunning Pip Studio table cloth which features bird, butterfly, branch and floral silhouettes, in a fresh white, pale aqua and soft linen color scheme. Note how the gorgeous cookies, cake and cupcakes were all created to mimic these designs and are artfully displayed on Rosanna white cake stands and compotes.

BACKDROP: I’ve always adored the look of Pine Cone Hill Ruched Linen Platinum Pillow Shams, so I had Sweet Tea & Linen create a custom backdrop in a similar design to make this table feminine, romantic and oh-so-Layla Grayce. The best part is it will repurpose perfectly as a headboard or wall art to use at home all season long.

LAYLA GRAYCE PRODUCTS: Many times I find mixing products from different artisans creates a spectacular end result. For this dessert table, we used the gorgeous Pip Studio table cloth, as well as the following items from Rosanna to display our sweets: Les Petite Sweets Large Compote, Small Compote, Medium White Pedestal, 2 Small White Pedestals, Bon Bon White Footed Cake Stand, and a personal favorite I used for a vase: Les Cookies Jar (this cookie jar was absolutely perfect to show off our pretty ranunculus and tulips).

The great thing about these white Rosanna products is they mix beautifully with white platters I already have at home. I used mini cupcake stands and oval cookie platters from my personal collection to keep the budget in check, and it worked out beautifully.

DESSERTS: I absolutely love a beautiful cake as a centerpiece, and this one turned out to be simple yet stunning. The edible bird’s nest is beautiful on a clean white fondant covered cake. In addition to the cake, I had white coconut cupcakes topped with fondant robin’s eggs, coconut jellybeans, french macarons, and a personal favorite–custom decorated cookies! Check out the beautiful hand-iced bird silhouette cookies, a lovely match to the table cloth. The edible 3-dimensional white flowers on pale aqua cookies are almost too beautiful to eat! The butterflies, ruched swirls, and dainty floral designs all compliment each other, but varying shapes give them a bit of contrast.

PRINTED DETAILS: Everyone’s favorite striped paper straws were a must, and Loralee Lewis provided the most beautiful cream and white ones with coordinating straw flags. I recommend having them printed with the event date and name of the guest of honor. I also wanted some dessert signs to identify the different flavored cookies. I knew that with the romantic ruffled look and feel of the table, rosettes would be perfect. Loralee created stunning double-layer custom dessert tags that I could easily stand by each dessert, serving a purpose and adding style as well.

I kept everything minimalist for this table, wanting it to be a real source of inspiration for your spring event. Note that keeping all items on the table crisp and uniform in white makes them easy to reuse, such as re-purposing the cookie jar as a vase for fresh spring blooms. Will you be hosting an event this spring? I’d love to hear about it!
