Making Some Changes

I've been lucky to have good friends, and for some reason the stars have aligned in such a way that I've been able to see nearly all of my closest local buddies in the last week, with an option this weekend for yet another get-together. The last couple of visits— lunches out in restaurants— have yielded some pretty good photos for the dessert series.

Originally, I'd thought that I'd do all of the backgrounds in the same color— a sort of Burnt Sienna that matched the tabletops for nearly all of the images. I guess the tables all come from the same manufacturer... But recently, I've been sat at tables with a different color faux wood. And they're lovely. So now I'm thinking to abandon the original plan, and mix it up where the backgrounds are concerned.

The tablecloth in the restaurant where this was delightfully consumed was white, and it picked up a lot of the ambient lighting and color, but I painted it reddish brown to match the other ones in the series. Now, however, I'm going to return it to its real, original color and have fun with the hues.

Here's the hot fudge sundae one:

I do love the dark wood on this one.
The birthday lunch I attended included a really fine strawberry shortcake dessert. These desserts are little works of art in themselves! I'll get started on that one soon.
