Something Blue

 I'm sure you've all heard of the sweets stylist, Amy Atlas, but if you haven't, be sure to check her out!  Her work is absolutely amazing and her dessert tables are incredibly inspiring!  As I was brainstorming ideas for my sister's bridal shower, I came across a gorgeous dessert table she designed for the Wedding Library that gave me an idea for the theme.

In other words,

Amy Atlas Moment
We decided on a color scheme and theme that was perfect for a bridal shower:
The invitations were designed by Amber from Announcing You.  She always does such a wonderful job! :)

I used leftover wood I had from another DIY project and fabric from Hancocks to create the backdrop.  I was so excited when I found the silhouette mirror for $14.99 at Ross!

The pearl Sixlets and candy scoops were from Party City and everything else was purchased at Sam's or Walmart.

I found the frame at T.J. Maxx and painted and distressed it to give it a more vintage feel.

I ended up spending just under $75 for all of the decor, desserts, candy, etc. :)
I love drooling over Amy's work and using it as inspiration for my own budget-friendly, much less perfect dessert tables!  Her "Perfectly Preppy" dessert buffet already has me brainstorming for Cole's first birthday party! :)
