Delicious Dessert Tables

By Sophie Fleetwood

What’s one of the best parts of a reception? The dessert of course! These days, a dessert table doesn’t mean just one simple, white wedding cake. So many brides are opting for a charming layered cake with an assortment of goodies that guests can enjoy along with their cakes. Whether its delicate cake pops, gooey chocolate chip cookies, or a donut tower, nothing will get the attention of your guests more than a table topped with delicious sweets and treats! It’s all about presentation, folks. Organized rows of truffles and a plate stacked neatly with squares of fudgy brownies will look beautiful on camera and in person!


And don’t forget about the decorations on your dessert table! A display isn’t complete without a table cloth and some added décor! Some brides dress their tables up with twinkling lights, cascading tablecloths, elegant table runners, balloon letters, flowers or even little banners!


Dessert Tables + Banners

Banners are the perfect way to dress up any dessert table and label your display. You can find banners on Etsy or head on over to Michael's and find some blank banners that you can use to make your own sign!

Dessert Tables + Balloons

Balloon letters are a hot decoration for weddings right now and even just a simple arch of white balloons can add a perfect whimsical and celebratory touch to your dessert table.
