Rustic Australian Christmas Dessert Table Styling Tips & Details:
Anna’s table styling description-
“This Christmas dessert table is inspired by the lovely sideboard I own with vintage hot air balloons painted on the drawers. I wanted the desserts to reflect the deep tones of the sideboard. I started with beautiful native Australian flowers. Sunshine yellow, Christmas tree green, and ruby red are the chosen colour scheme. These colors reflect the green and gold of our beautiful, sun-scorched Australian Summer.
Traditional Meets Aussie Design
As I began to build my design concept I realised that I was actually creating a Christmas dessert table that showcased our unique Australian climate and environment, rather than imitating a Northern Winter Christmas. Doing away with snowflakes and Frosty the Snowman, I included gum nuts, daisies and cherry topped cupcakes. Of course, there is a lot about a traditional Christmas that I could not part with. I used Tartan checked vintage tins and thermoses from my prop collection as decorations. Then, gingerbread deer cookies on top of a rustic spice naked cake gave the display a distinct woodland feel.
I kept the decoration of the treats minimal by tying tartan ribbon and rosemary sprigs around the gingerbread men. A red velvet cake decorated with dried orange slices and star anise is the feature cake. As the display was set up in front of a gorgeous sunshine yellow wall, I kept the backdrop simple using two old window frames sourced from a second-hand shop. Tying three iced ginger cookies with ribbon, I hung them from one of the windows for added interest. This was a very simple dessert display that could easily be adapted to your own home and style. Find inspiration in your own garden, wherever you live and use colours that are around you. Stand out from the crowd and create a unique Christmas dessert table this festive season.”
