Dessert Table: Paper Crafts Whimsy

Today's dessert table feature is the most DIY-able one I think I've ever seen, but don't for a second think that means it isn't just as fabulous as a more complex design. Susana of Simplesmente Branco and Ana of Pinga Amor designed this whimsical, vibrant display, which was featured on Somewhere Splendid.

This design is a great example of bringing what you do best to a project. If you haven't mastered intricate frosting work or fondant skills, simply incorporate a craft (like paper fans and flowers) that you can do well to make a bold statement. Simple desserts are the perfect compliment to such a visually arresting backdrop.
This small side table only features three mini bundt cakes, one unfrosted cupcake, and some cookies. But when combined with the hot pink, white, and kraft brown garland it becomes an amazing display.
We also get a little extra oomph with help from some little friends. I love that the little deer gets a cake plate all to himself.
This simple design has so much personality. What's your favorite part?
