Artistic Inspiration of the Dessert Variety

Although the styling and use of dessert tables is something new, the trend of dessert displays and artwork have been loved for years! Of course, this shouldn’t be a surprise, given the beauty of sweets! Some of the most memorable displays are the ones from diners, when cakes and pies were set out on display, and one of my favorite artists captured this in a pop art style that is amazing! I thought I would share what is inspiring me today by sharing some of the art work of Wayne Thiebaud.

If you are now a fan of the bold sculptural forms and brilliant colors of Wayne Thiebaud, you can find some beautiful books on Amazon, such as Delicious.

OR, if you happen to have an extra 1-2 million, Wayne Thiebaud (b. 1920) Seven Suckers is available at Christie’s.
