Dessert tables with a difference!

Wedding season has truly kicked off this summer and us vintage lassies have been very busy with all things Butler and Taylor the past few weeks! We have been gathering all our best vintage china and props for hen nights, and wedding dates all over the country. Last weekend we had a bride and groom hire 15 of our three tier cake stands to place in the middle of each of their tables! We can't wait to see the photographs!

We also have requests for cake stands of all different heights and shapes for dessert tables at weddings and events, this idea of a display of treats is becoming more and more popular as people are moving away from the traditional wedding cake and having a selection of lots of different cakes, tarts, sweets or even cheese!

Claire and I are really proud of our cake stand collection as it is all 100% vintage, our stands range from the 1920's classic art deco style to the 1950's bright florals. We also have bunting and all sorts of weird and wonderful props available for hire.

I managed to find some amazing snaps of creative dessert tables where people have used domes, cake stands, glass jars and all sorts of props to create eye-catching feasts! I love the way people are stepping out from the norm and showing their personalities. Enjoy the snaps, click on some to enlarge as they have so much detail. Let me know which one is your favourite!

This couple must of had a sweet tooth!

I have always loved green and white American milk glass stands, I found this image on this delightful blog - http://ohhappyday.com
 These cakes in particular reminded me of the illustrations in Mrs Beeton's famous cookbook pictured below.

 All this talk of cake is making me peckish!

Oooh those desert tables are to die for! It makes me think of the pink blancmange my mum used to make when I was a kid - she had a big old crazy mould which was like some of the Mrs Beetons pictures as well as a bunny rabbit one (reserved for birthdays!)

Love reading about all your lovely china! xx
