Styling a Dessert Table:
With Willie Soto & Lili Cuellar
Select a Theme
Any successful dessert table setup must have a theme or color to guide all decorations and desserts.
The essential and the most important part of the table are the sweets! Avoid using too many colors or props. Select cake stands and plates in a variety of shapes but a single color to achieve a charming but elegant result.
Make it cost-effective by using things from around your home, a simple piece of wood could be perfect for a Rustic dessert table. If you’re in the business of making dessert tables, make sure to get props on clearance seasons so you can get beautiful things in a very low price...
Make your cake the center of attention! Start laying out the table from the center with a cake or cupcake tower and then go from side to side placing coordinating sweets. Use a variety of heights on each side to keep visual interest.
Time it right!
And finally, when the big day arrives, arrive at least 2 hours before the party starts. Give yourself ample time to decorate and perfect your table (and take some great pictures, too!)
