Champagne Bubbles, Sugar Plums and Seven Swans a Swimming....yummy desserts...

The family's antique sterling silver swan filled with white spider mums, roses, amaryllis, gold glittered ferns and platinum berries, guards the all-white dessert table from little hands.

Gold speckled tulle overlays a cream crinkle satin linen for a confectionary's dream.

Apothecary jars filled with clear glass bubbles and vintage milk glass goblets containing white carnations and soft pink glass pearlized balls capture the light from the house's bay window.

Meringues surround a vintage pressed glass bowl filled with fresh blackberries.

Decadent tiny cheesecakes are topped with homemade fresh blackberry jelly which was made from the Summer's bounty.

Aunt Hester's recipe for the decadent cheesecakes

Small glass globes filled with snow and miniature lit paper houses act as bases to hold vintage plates covered in coconut as delectable desserts are artfully placed on top.

A gingerbread cake, a replica of the Island's barn, sits amidst the lilies patiently awaiting the bride and groom to cut it.

Hand-glittered purple stars and balls dance amongst the hand-glittered and hand-snowed bubbles high above the table of desserts.

Bite-sized vanilla cupcakes sprinkled with sugar are placed on a vintage plate covered in coconut.

Champagne vanilla mousses sprinkled with purple sugar, fill miniature vintage glass champagne coupes.

Hand-sugared grapes cover a vintage milk glass plate.

The barn's weathervane proudly sits atop a snow-covered gingerbread roof.

A gingerbread snow-covered truck awaits to be eaten by the small hands that made it.

**A special Happy Birthday to Hester Smith (my Mom) who outdid herself in creating these amazing confections!
