Nothing sweetens up a wedding reception or party event quit like a dessert buffet, a visual delight to inspire the inner-child. It’s an overflowing sweet buffet that lets guest pick their own take-home treats. Setting up a dessert table buffet entails a lot of patience and creative styling skills. Here are a few ideas and tips in designing and setting up your delicious dessert table. Dessert Table Ideas Set the table. Decorate the table with something that inspires you then put the table against a simple background. Cover it with fabulous cloth and add flowers and ribbons as an accent to the theme. Create platforms or place fabric-covered Styrofoam raiser boxes with different heights and shapes on which you can set up your desserts. Choose a collection of containers. Pick bowls, jars, vases, trays, platters, canisters and footed stands in combination of shapes and sizes. Scoops and spoons make the perfect accessory to a jar of lollies. Clear glass containers are great for holding colourful hard candies. Pick a color theme. Everything you put on the table must match your color scheme or theme. Try to use two or three monochromatic colors. Add labels. This is alway diffucult because it take so much time infront of the computer or at the craft store, but it sure looks beautiful.Use matching stationary, handwritten signs, chalkboard signs, and calligraphy to describe and name your delicious desserts.
