Pastel Pretty

“Creating this table gave me the opportunity to indulge my lifelong obsession with soft greens, pinks, yellows, blues and lavenders," says Atlas.

This gorgeous dessert display is like stepping into a pastel candy land. Atlas’s sweet tooth inspired the mod pastel table runner – it’s made of Necco Wafers hot glued to a big piece of tulle. A few key design tricks keep the table looking chic, not cloyingly sweet: using simple glass containers and cake stands to highlight the candy, selecting treats in one predominant hue (pale pink) and grouping the items together in solid blocks of color. It’s simply dreamy.
