Make the Perfect Dessert Table for Your Wedding With This Easy DIY
Wedding season is here! If you are a bride-to-be or know someone who is getting married, bridal showers, bachelorette parties and the big day are just around the corner! It’s the happiest time in a bride’s life so what better way to celebrate this special occasion than with a gorgeous dessert table.
Jenny Keller of JennyCookies.com here! You can quote me when I say, “Dessert tables are the centerpiece of any party!” They stand alone and make an impressive statement to guests. Whether it’s a shower or the wedding itself, a special dessert table will guarantee a wow from your guests. Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores has some gorgeous new products that will make your desserts shine this wedding season.
I always start the dessert table design with the actual table and backdrop. JOANN launched a new ribbon garland that makes the perfect table backdrop providing a pop of color and texture behind a classic white wedding cake. It’s made with a variety of pink, blush pink ribbons and white lace which are classic and neutral to complement almost any color palette.
Wedding cakes typically take center stage of the table so it’s best to display your cake on a cake pedestal that stands tall above the other desserts on display. This white cake plate is made of iron with an intricate design on the brims. The decorative plate will only add to the beauty of your cake!
When styling the dessert table, it’s nice to include flowers or items that add a little life to the table. The succulent trend is so popular right now so I added a variety of potted succulent plants to create visual interest. l loved the contrast of the green succulents and the pink in the backdrop.
If the shower or wedding is in the evening, it’s great to have a few candles to light around the dessert. These gorgeous glass votives provide the perfect ambiance around the treats. You’ll want to be sure to pick up non-scented candles to alleviate any competitive scents with the desserts.
Whenever I host events I like to offer guests the option to take home some treats to enjoy later. These adorable favor bags are just the right size to pack a few treats inside. There’s nothing better than getting home and remembering you have a little dessert to indulge in! You can also use these cute bags to pre-packaged goodies for wedding favors as well.
I hope these tips and products inspire you to create the dessert table of your dreams this wedding season!
