Weddings are filled with beautiful sights, sounds and smells, from the shoes on her feet to the band that keeps the party going. Dessert is a crucial part of the night that many people wait for. While the single wedding cake is a classic tradition, many couples are now opting for delicious and beautiful dessert tables. Keep reading for Hylah’s tips to styling your perfectly sweet dessert table.
1) Incorporate Dessert Traditions
I am half Italian and you can never have too much dessert. Add a Viennese Table (Dessert buffet) to your reception after your cake cutting for a delightful and delicious surprise for your guests.
2) Use a decorative table or linen
The table can make all the difference. Add a vintage table for a rustic look or a sequined linen for a little bit of glamour.
3) Incorporate decorative vessels and pair them with the desserts
A special cake plate, bottle of champagne, or beautiful cake knife set that fits your theme really makes the table look complete!
4) Add florals
Use floral arrangements to tie in your cake and dessert tables with the rest of your decor.
5) Don’t forget the candles
The classic look of candles instantly transforms your look. Tip: Make sure you check with your venue. Some venues require special permits if you want to light candles. There are many realistic looking led candles available to get the look and feel.
6) More cake
Instead of one large cake split your tiers into two or three smaller cakes. Add different flavors and and looks to create a unique look.
7) Create dimension with your desserts
Add some height to your dessert table with a traditional Croquembouche or a French Macaron Tower.
