Why have a Dessert table at you big event?

Dessert tables and candy buffets are getting more and more popular especially at weddings. Why? 

Well, you will find that there are many reasons. First, they offer your guests more choice of dessert than just the wedding cake or the sweet that is served as part of a sitting down meal. They can include an amazing variety of goodies such as cupcakes, meringues, mini pies, centerpiece cakes, petit-fours, biscuits, macaroons, fruit tartlets etc...

Also, as well as to its size, dessert tables can be adapted to the style of the event, adding a special, memorable touch to the wow factor of your big day. Ribbon, stands, food tags, table cloths, buntings and other décor coordinate both colours and themes.  It’s a real work of Art!

And last but not least, dessert buffets take some pressure away from you. Oh absolutely! Don’t you worry about your guests not enjoying themselves and mingle with one another anymore! It will give the most shy person the opportunity to pass comments and get the conversation going!
So lovely brides to be, have I convinced you yet?

To sum up, not only dessert tables reflect who you are, they are also edible, decorative and even interactive. What more could you ask for?

Oh you may be worried about how much extra cash you will need? 
Actually, it may not cost you more than buying a highly decorated three-tiered wedding cake from a 'well-known' cake maker. Dessert tables are designed around your budget. Why not ask for a quote? Consultation is free of charge.

A bientôt.

  1. What a fun idea! And a beautiful display. Personally it would have to have some healthy options on there such as beautiful fruit as my boyfriend believes cake is the enemy. And I like to give my guests desserts that will help them party rather than give them an energy slump - I've always liked to serve tiramisu at midnight because it's a great pick me up and makes them party till 4am! So maybe a Scrumptious Table.

  2. Yes, candy buffet is getting more popular these days. I too had such buffet in my bridal show at one of famous Los Angeles event venues. Every guest loved buffet arrangements, and especially decorations were loved by every guest.
