One beautiful crisp morning in March I set out to capture a simple and elegant dessert table that I could picture in my mind – it had to be outdoors with a calm and petty backdrop.  I had been wanting to use the colours of yellow and grey as the work to beautifully together.
I asked Jacki from Blissfully Sweet Cakes to create two special cakes, some mini cupcakes and a dessert in a little glass jar – they were perfect for what I had in mind.
Nicole from Pretty and Print provided me with some amazing printables that captured the essence of the shoot which was all about Mothers Day.
My vision came together as the sun rose over the table – it was just me and my camera and a beautiful table full of lovingly created treats.
The morning also happened to be the 9th Birthday of our eldest daughter Laura – if you are a new visitor to my blog,  Laura is our angel in heaven – a little guiding light in our life – it felt so magical to be out there with the sunrise and the calm – like she was there with me celebrating our own mothers day.  It was truly one of those beautiful mornings that made me realise why I love what I do.
I hope you enjoy some more pictures of my special mothers day dessert table and it provides a little inspiration for your celebration this year.

The shoot was put together for the latest edition of the Bird’s Party Magazine which you can see below.
Special thanks to Jacki from Blissfully Sweet Cakes for her amazing desserts, Nicole from Pretty and Print for her perfect paper goods and to Contents Giftware for the beautiful console.  The stunning flowers are from Rebecca at Petal and Pod.
Please feel free to contact me if you need anymore information about the items included.

  1. Serenely beautiful images and what a special, poignant time for you.

    I’d love to know what delicious concoction was in the glass jars, please, and if you plan to sell the vases, etc or if they are antiques? I’ve collected a few similar pieces but I’m always on the lookout for more. Thank you for sharing the photos! xx
