As Pretty as a Picture – Our Instagrammable Festive Table

As Pretty as a Picture – Our Instagrammable Festive Table

The last of our holiday hosting inspirational tables is one to keep a memory of. Make a wow statement with your very own instragrammable table – snap it and share it because it is so pretty, warm, and inviting.

Here is a starter pack of tips on taking gorgeous photos with your phone. Be sure to:

  • Check the photo mode – portrait mode is good unless you are in an area with low light
  • For perfect depth of field – tap your subject and wait for the yellow square to appear and position it on what you want in focus
  • Turn off HDR – it is challenging to get HDR right unless you are a photo fundi
  • Great pics need good composition - use the rule of thirds to create a balanced photo
  • Natural light is best for the perfect pic!

But first, you need to create the scene you are going to snap, and Château Gâteaux will help you do just that. The tone of our instagrammable table is simple and inviting.  We used a wooden table to create warmth and a homely feeling. The plain textured table runner sets off our uncomplicated but stylish table décor of green foliage and blue linen, bringing the look together. Metallic baubles create a dash of glamour.  

The picture is not complete until you produce our baked to perfection Cookie Dough Baked Cheesecake and place it on the table. Nobody will be able to resist the deliciousness of this statement cheesecake topped with cookie dough baked frosting. Add personal finishing touches to your cake by decorating it with star shaped biscuits which creates that festive flair. Because our cakes are freshly frozen, you can place your order well in advance through our online store, so all you need to think about is defrosting the night before your festive gathering.  



Use your newfound skills to capture your creative and stunning festive table. Shoot from every angle, shoot after you have cut a slice of the Cookie Dough Cheesecake, zoom in on features of your table, create a collage of pics. And post. You will be the one to follow for sure!

Do it for the gram with Château Gâteaux, your helping hand in making this Festive Season exceptional.
