Wedding Favor Table

Amy Atlas created this dessert table for Claudia Hanlin's Wedding Library in New York City.  Inspired by the Wedding Library's lovely, hand-screened Alan Campbell paper, the table included delicate treats such as cupcakes decorated with feathers and pearls, fleur-de-lis cookies and silhouette chocolates.   

One of our customers emailed this to us and we love the idea.  Visit Cut Arts to have your custom silhouettes done!
