Parties in Bloom- Father's Day Inspiration

I was just blown away by this party submission.  Virginie of That Cute Little Cake created this natural dessert table for her husband's birthday.  It is simply stunning- masculine and elegant all at the same time. I ABSOLUTELY love the wood log pile backdrop. Just gorgeous use of natural elements- perfect for any dad. 

Virginie explains:

The design started with the unique wood log pile backdrop (tutorial here) I created especially for my husbands birthday. I knew this was going to be the focal point so I kept the theme natural and I tried to create an elegant display. I picked a natural palette of white, beige and brown and added some green accents in order to introduce some of my husband's favourite Pistachio treats.

The sweet treats included a chocolate mud cake covered in chocolate ganache, brownies, pistachio financier, meringues, tiramisu, custards in 4 different flavours and caramel pots, all home baked. (recipes found here)

The log backdrop would also be great for a camp themed party or any fall celebration.  Thank Virginie for sharing this amazing dessert table.
