Show and Tell Monday ~ 1:12 Dollhouse Miniature Patisserie Delights

I can't believe Christmas is just going to be a week away...I don't have a habit of gift exchange, but I will be getting 2 presents for close friends. It will be quite easy as I already decided what to get for them.

I got this idea when I received a request to have a customized order for a "sampling plate" - meaning one of each of all the patisseries I made in my previous piece. I initially was thinking of the usual display tray, but knowing it was going to be one each, I thought this would be a better way to display it.

Here's my interpretation of a patisserie sampling plate. I call it the Patisserie Delights....

First, I wanted a vintage, elegant wood display to bring out all the pretty patisserie. To soften the look, I added some more faux grass and white pretty flowers.

The patisseries are not glued to the piece, so it can be arranged in any way.
