Happy Friday everyone! We’re back with our picks for dessert table “basics” – those decor pieces that will carry you through any dessert table scenario. Our last post covered a few dessert table building blocks such as apothecary jars and vases, cutlery, and cupcake stands and towers. Today, we explore a few more options to help you create your dream dessert table – let’s get started!
1. Cupcake Boxes and Bags – With an endless spread of cupcakes and other treats, it’s highly likely guests will be clamoring to take some of the goodies home. However, brown paper bags or even plastic bags will just not do the trick. Elegantly displayed cupcakes deserve to be sent home in style! Consider using cupcake domes, cupcake bags, or cupcake boxes. Guests will be delighted to be taking home a piece of the dessert table.
2. Crystal Decor – While you may feel that delicious desserts are enough for your display, if you plan on using your homemade desserts, you just may not be able to create a full dessert bar (but more power to you if you can!). That’s when a little extra table decor help comes in handy. Crystal decor such as magnetic hanging crystals, diamond rhinestone ribbon wrap, and diamond confetti decor, fill space on your dessert table while also providing a decorative touch.
3. Washi Tape – a current DIY favorite, washi tape is versatile and oh-so-cute! It’s perfect for dessert tables as it can be used in practically any capacity. Mix and match colors and patterns for a whimsical look. Apply it to wooden cutlery, favor boxes, cupcake domes, apothecary jars, and more – the possibilities are truly endless!
We hope we’ve inspired you a bit in getting started and creative with your dessert table. Remember that when you have the basics, you can build and create from there. Only your imagination is the limit!
