White and Pistachio Wedding Dessert Table

A few weeks ago both Coby (from The Lemony Cupcake) and I had the pleasure in designing this wedding dessert table for a bridal showcase hosted by The Powder Room.  These beautiful images were taken by none other than Todd Hunter McGaw.

A little side note: I grew up in Samford, a lazy rural town north of Brisbane.  I went to school from pre-school to year 7 with Todd's younger brother Lachlan.  About a year ago Lachlan and I reconnected via facebook he told me about Todd's fab photography business with his lovely wife Alyda.  It was such a treat to see Todd again and reminisce about the good old days.  And can I tell you, they were the good old days.

Classic and timeless.  We selected a palette of crisp white with accents of pistachio and silver.  I had the backdrop custom made to look like wall panelling.
