Cupcake Ideas: How To Decorate A Vintage Dessert Buffet

Old is new again. Everything vintage has become shabby and chic. Vintage weddings are very popular right now with style conscious brides. From the wedding ceremony to the wedding reception, everything has to be vintage and elegant. As you guessed, the dessert table is no exception. Creating a vintage cupcake buffet is easy with vintage antique cake stands, designer cupcake wrappers and a palette of pastels. Match a lace table cloth with yellow and pink cupcake wrappers to have a romantic feminine dessert display.

Imagine a beautiful table lined with a white palette and decorated with soft yellow cupcake wrappers. Each cupcake can have its own unique cupcake topper for a classic dessert decoration. Vintage decorations incorporate lace, pearls and white together for a simple shabby but chic theme. These beautiful white jeweled cake stands would create the perfect presentation for a vintage table with an elegant theme. These white cake stands topped with white cupcake wrappers can create a stunning cupcake display but might be too plain for some brides. If that’s the case, mix it up with tan cupcake wrappers and a burlap tablecloth.

If you’re having an indoor wedding reception and your dessert table has a backdrop, decorate with strands of pearls and tissue paper pom poms. A beautiful “sweet treats” banner hung on the backdrop or on the edge of the table will let guests know they’re welcome to indulge. And don’t forget these beautiful heart shaped favor boxes for party favors. Any favor box lined with a doily can have a vintage feel.
