{Dessert Table} White Table

There’s a lot that goes through my mind when designing a table.  I am constantly changing and tweaking my designs until I feel like it all just “fits”.  I won’t even buy anything until I can visualize the whole table in my mind.

I draw upon the art education I've had quite often.  One of the most important lessons I learned involves making sure that the eye flows properly around the "art work".  Typically there are several ways to accomplish this, but with this table I struggled since every food element on the table was white.  Colors, shades, even the shapes of things are very important in my design process. For example, when I designed my Pea in the Pod table, I not only coordinated the green, white, and accents of yellow, I also incorporated a lot of round elements in the table. It provided further cohesiveness, and visual stimulation.

White Dessert Table

This all-white dessert table was designed for a 40th Birthday Party.  When designing a monochromatic table, I found that texture was very important to me; it really helped separate the items and give contrast, without the use of different colors.  I tried to make sure I incorporated lots of texture in the cake frosting, through the use of popcorn, in the candies, etc. Another element I used, along with varying textures, was to create varying heights in this table.  Although this table doesn't incorporate a lot of taller elements, I used the cake as the focal point and the ferns to help draw the eye up a bit.  Other food items, like the donut holes, candies, and popcorn gave a smaller, but much needed, “lift” as well.

This table was so fun to put together, and I was really happy with how everything turned out.  I love how a dessert table will take any party to an entirely new level.  I hope you enjoy looking at it as much as I did creating it!

{Table} Halloween in a Box

WB 058

This table was made for all you lovely readers!  Halloween is just around the corner and I know you're thinking about pulling out your decor and maybe even throwing a great Halloween party.  Perhaps you need a little vision, something to get the creative juices flowing--any inspiration.  If you love any of the elements from this dessert table, you can get them!  Later this week, I will be opening up my Etsy shop and offering my first party kit.  Included are all the non-food items from this dessert table: the trick-or-treat bunting, the sequins around the cake, the fabulous twine and wrapping, and so on.  Basically, if you can't eat it you can buy it.  If you have any questions about this party kit, or to get your order in now, feel free to email me at whitney@whipperberry.com.

I have been giddy for days.  I can’t wait any longer to share this amaaazing  table with you guys!!  Suzanne from SHE PAPERIE & Design Boutique and Jeanna from Jeanna Hayes Studios put together this tasty table for a photography workshop.  A workshop that I would have died to go to.  Look at all of the details, they are sublime.

Isn’t it divine? Congrats ladies on an amazing table and a feature on Amy Atlas. The good news (for us here at WhipperBerry, anyway)  is Suzanne and Jeanna live in our neck of the woods!  I am having visions of fabulous things to come.  Thanks Suzanne and Jeanna for sharing your glorious tables.

So, let me ask you this: If you could create a dream party, what would it be?
