Dessert Table: Succulent Sweets

I've got two great posts for you today, so let's kick things off with a beautiful dessert table. This Cinco de Mayo inspired butter was featured on Green Wedding Shoes and is full of succulent plants and luscious flowers. Soft hues and subtle cultural elements make it feel more like an intimate Mexican party rather than a loud, late-night fiesta. The cake is strung with a traditional papel picado banner, while margarita cupcakes, candy favor bags, and churros sit amongst glass covered succulents and rock beds.
Just look at how well the dessert table coordinates with the event's other decor. In all dessert table planning, this type of cohesive design is my ultimate goal. I want the buffet to be a seamless addition to the look, rather than just a random assortment of sweets. That doesn't mean everything has to match or be mirror images of each other, but the dessert table should feel like it belongs in its surroundings rather than being just a colorful afterthought. I also thought this dessert table was fabulously cohesive.

I really like how the entire design reflects a Mexican theme without seeming cliched or gimmicky. It's subtly is it's beauty. You can tell from its styling that it's a planned design, but it doesn't feel too structured. It's much more organic than that, and it's lovely. What's your favorite element of the design?

Don't forget to come back later today for the second post! See you soon.
