Behind the scenes of Sweet Little Birdy's Easter Shoot (Posted by Val)

Do you love dessert tables as much as I do? I love the way the table is styled to match the food, accessories and backdrop. I am known to frequently stare at photos for many passing minutes whilst I try to absorb all the creative ideas. So when Tara from Sweet Little Birdy asked if I would like to come along to her Easter Shoot, I jumped at the opportunity.

The city girl in me nervously typed in the address of a countryside location she had never been too and started the kid-free car. The GPS held true as it directed me past green pastures, cows, horses, big acre properties and down a dirt track to a barn (yes a barn!) decorated into the most beautiful Easter scene.

Here is a picture of the lovely Leighsa (from Michelle-Leigh Photography) helping Hannah (from Divine Drops) hang some pretty tissue pom poms and so trendy doiley lanterns.

The friendly girls, Rach and Bec, from Sapphire Designs set up a bright and cheery centrepiece of flowers in a 3 tiered cake shape, complete with fondant cake topper by The Cake Princess ... I have never thought of that! How cute would that look in any girly party as a centrepiece?

Have you met Tara from Sweet Little Birdy? There are very few pictures of her on her website, so I thought there would have to be one in my blog - she never ceases to amaze me with her creativity.

I can't wait for Easter because I am so going to copy these ideas...

Mousse in chocolate eggs!
Lindt bunnies!

As you well know if you have done a dessert table before, it definitely becomes a family affair. Here is the very handsome Mr J, Tara's eldest son who was so helpful on the day. The other photo is the adorable Mr C, Tara's middle son (dressed in Billynmoo clothing) who is having a 'rest' before the festivities start... sooo adorable!

And here it is, the ever so pretty Easter dessert table by Sweet Little Birdy. Do you see those egg shell cups? There are tea light candles in them! Those Easter eggs and marshmallows on bamboo skewer sticks are another party idea that can be used in many different ways on party tables.

But by far, my favourite moment was when the kids arrived and headed straight for the table. I think they showed a lot of restraint by not touching anything.

The cute labels are by Style Me Gorgeous. I have seen her work in several dessert tables and love her magical work on the computer.

Easter is a very symbolic day to Christians celebrating the resurrection of our Saviour Jesus Christ. I can just imagine Jesus having a giggle as he saw these little kids eyes open in wonder at the Easter festivities that happened on this beautiful green acreage.
