How to Make the Perfect Sweet Table
Firstly, you need sweets or desserts that you actually enjoy eating. As visually appealing as some sweet tables look, you want one stacked with crowd-pleasing treats that guests will want to pick from all night long. Consider having lots of textures, such as chewy sweets, crunchy popcorn, creamy chocolate and something more toothsome like brownie bites, macarons or cake pops.
What you serve will be partly dependent on the time of year of your wedding - chocolate will melt into a sticky mess on a hot summer’s day, but a chocolate fountain with warm running chocolate will be ideal in winter.
Think about your colour scheme – it looks extra effective if you can match your sweets to your chosen wedding colour scheme. For example, pick sweets in pink hues for a visually stunning display at a pink-themed wedding.
Consider the extras – what will your sweet treat table come with? If it’s on a cart or a designated table, do you need to supply the table cloth? Are scoops included in the hire? And do you need signs so your guests know what they’re eating (and the allergens)? What jar size will work?
Buying all the jars and scoops can get costly and you’ll need space to store them after the wedding. It’s much easier to rent them from a sweets and treats supplier or hire them to put together the whole thing and set-up on the day.
