Dessert Table Inspiration

Dessert tables are growing in popularity, and for a good reason. Beyond displaying an array of confections, creating a dessert table allows you to further enhance your wedding style and color scheme. For weddings set in a rustic venue, consider offering a spread of simple desserts—like pie, cookies, or brownies. Incorporate family favorites—like your Aunt Mabel's famous gingersnaps—for added appeal. If you're hosting a more upscale fête, consider a selection of color-coordinated treats on matching stands. Keep the desserts bite size so guests can quickly grab a snack before returning to the dance floor. If you want to give your guests a real sugar rush—nothing beats a candy buffet. For a stylish display, let your color scheme guide your selection of sweets and stick to a few hues. Arrange the candy in glass jars (we like these covered jars from Crate & Barrel).
