Are you planning to have a party in the near future? You need to think about your guests: would they want a dessert table? If it is a kid’s party, you should definitely include a dessert table because children have a sweet tooth.
Here are some tips for creating a dessert table:
You need to pay attention to the dessert colors if you want to have some harmony at your dessert table. If you want the table to fit your overall color scheme, you should limit the number of colors that you use. For instance, you can opt for pink cakes, cupcakes, and sweets.
Consider different heights
Including a bunch of different heights makes for a visually interesting table. Make sure that you utilize different dessert trays and cake stand sizes. Moreover, you can place containers atop your wrapping boxes – this is a great way to add levels.
Consider adding apothecary jars
These jars are always a pretty addition to any table. You can find a great apothecary jar selection at Save on Crafts. Just make sure that your choice of color matches the overall theme of the party.
Add party printables
If you want to add party printables to your dessert table, you should print them on a glassy brochure paper –this will make them pop. You will find a variety of party printables designers online at affordable prices. As always, choose paper that matches the theme of your party.
Add a backdrop
Using a backdrop adds a frame and gives the dessert table some depth. For instance, if you are having a carnival-themed party, you should consider adding a backdrop with striped curtains.
Adding a matching backdrop will make your party theme appear realer.
Consider adding labels
While some people prefer not to add labels, others would rather label every item on the dessert table. You can opt to label just the items that your guests might find confusing. However, if you want to make things a little more interesting by using creative labels, you should label every item.
Make many items in advance
If possible, make most dessert items in advance to avoid wasting time on the day of the party. Cake layers can be wrapped tightly and frosted several days before the party. Balls of cookie dough can also be put in the freezer weeks or days in advance. This will give you freshly baked cookies with little effort.
Buy some desserts
Although some hosts prefer to make all their desserts, you can take this burden off your shoulders by buying desserts. You can shop for sweets at your local shops or online. When buying sweets from online shops such as Sweet Services, you should order in advance to prevent late arrivals.
Fabric is the most preferred decorative item because it is inexpensive. You should not go out of your way to find table décor. Just use any items around the house such as frames or banners.
Do you have candles in your house? Do not hesitate to use them unless you are expecting very rowdy guests who might knock them over and start a fire.
Consider the needs of your guests
Are you expecting some gluten-free guests? Make sure that you add some gluten-free desserts to your table. This will make all your guests feel wanted and appreciated. For instance, you can use a gluten-free brownie mix to prepare brownies for them.
Most importantly, you should not forget to have fun – it is a party after all. If you busy yourself with preparations, the party will come and go but you will not enjoy yourself.
