Guest Dessert Table Feature

I get a lot of emails from aspiring dessert table designers with pictures of their creations. This is the second one that I am posting from Sharnel Dollar of My Life My Loves from Brisbane, Australia. She created a pinwheel-inspired dessert table for her young son's birthday party and it is just too lovely not to share! I love the use of the wooden crate boxes, the play on the pinwheel theme, and the color palette. With my inbox often flooded with pictures of dessert tables from people all over the world, I am thrilled to see that Sharnel just gets it! Maybe I should start a regular column on my updated blog of featured dessert tables. Would you all like that? I could give constructive criticism for those who need it in those features since I can't personally get back to everyone's emails. What do you think? Anyway, Sharnel, no advice for you except to keep doing what you are doing! Fab job!

Amy,
What can I say? I'm absolutely flattered by your kind words. Really, you have no idea how I'm feeling right now.
I truly love creating these dessert tables and getting this feedback from the "other Martha" is just overwhelming.
Thank you again, you've made one Mum in Australia very happy indeed.

Sharnel, your table is beautiful! I love the colors and all the details. I made my first dessert table recently (photos on my blog) but I still have a long way to go to get all the details down. :)

Amy, I think your idea is fantastic. I'm sure many aspiring dessert table designers would love the feedback from you. I'm following you religiously on Twitter and your sites. Thanks for all you do and share.

Wow Sharnel! Very whimsical! Love the color scheme and the colors. The arrangement is perfect. The green apples are a great touch.

Amy: This is a lovely gesture and thank you for featuring Sharnel's work. I think a blog post on occassion featuring your admirer's work is a lovely idea.You are so talented and amazing. I love your work! Keep the pictures coming. So inspiring!

Cute designs. So bright and colorful. I love your idea of a dessert table highlight blog with constructive criticism. I'm not a tablescape designer but I'd still love something like that, I'd read it daily.

Amy,
I enjoy each photo of your dessert designs, and would love to see more! As a party planner, I've created a few myself, but would love suggestions! How do you begin your design process? I'd like to know what it is that 'gets you going'! Is it a color, or an object that sets you in motion? Please share and keep up the great postings!

I love MLML and this party was just beautiful- no detail left out! A friend of mine is planning her son's first birthday so I e-mailed her the pictures immediately...turns out she was already drooling over them herself!

K said...

Simply gorgeous! And yes, Amy, more of these features would be fantastic!

Thanks for your blog--

I would love a column with some feedback. And things like tips for photographing indoor tables would be a huge help for me! Sometimes I'm really proud of a table, but for the life of me I can't get the photos to show it off properly.

Jeanette Mc. said...

Fabulous idea. It's great to see what can be done with different budgets and how we can all improve. Very generous of you and I'm really looking forward to it. LOVED Sharnel's table.

Christi Bennett @ pisforparty said...

Wasn't that dessert table great?!

I think an ongoing dessert table feature is a great idea!

citygirl - Stacey said...

Looks great! I like how she used the gift wrapped box as a holder for the caramel popcorn. Very creative!

Sarah said...

i think a column to critique others tables is a GREAT idea! Now if you would just let people shadow you on the job... :)

Emily said...

This is a beautiful table - what lucky kids! I can never get enough of Amy's pictures... I love the idea of a blog section with others' tables.

"Pink Party Girl" said...

Uh-oh, Amy!
Looks like you got more than you asked for! :) Hope it's not too much more work to add extras to your blog, but we are all just DYING to learn more, see more and be more inspired!
thanks for sharing!

Leanne Ambrogio said...

Hi Amy - I love Sharnel's work as well and I follow both her blog and yours and you have both inspired me to attempt the dessert table for my daughters 4th birthday party in March - I think your idea of guest dessert tables would be fantastic. Thanks again. Leanne in Australia
