Reception Style: Dessert Display Inspo

After the I Do’s, the first dance and the speeches, everyone’s looking forward to the sweet treat waiting for them at the end of the night! Go beyond the slice of cake – check out these dessert displays!

A S’MORES STAND

This is essential for a backyard/lakeside reception – especially a venue with a gorgeous fire pit. Allow your guests to enjoy their favorite outdoor dessert!

How fun and whimsical is this? Stock up on the bride & groom’s favorite ice cream flavors for cocktail hour or following a garden-party buffet!

candybar

THE CANDY BAR

A classic candy bar lets your guests fill up on their favorite sweets and doubles as the perfect favor to send them home with. Add customized mason jars or monogrammed canvas pouches for added charm.

A MILK & COOKIES STAND

Conclude your reception with an all American classic – the chocolate chip cookie! With glasses of milk (strawberry, chocolate & 2%) to pair, this is one fresh & flavorful option.

A pie bar is the perfect complement to a mid-summer wedding or a rustic-chic barn bash. Give your guests an array of goodness by displaying them on vintage pie stands! You can ask your groom-to-be, your bridal party and your parents for pie flavor suggestions.

A DONUT WALL

One of my favorite early 2017 trends – a wall of glorious donuts. When you’re out on the dance floor, the last thing you want to do is try to juggle a piece of cake and a plastic fork. Your guest will love being able to pick their flavors right off the display and keep the party going!

DIY ICE CREAM SANDWICH STATION

Cookies + (Ice) Cream = 

If you prefer your guests stay seated during dinner & dessert, consider passing out individual ice cream sandwich stations! Provide cookies, toppings and pre-cut ice cream slices so guests can get creative with their sweets.

A COFFEE BAR

Are you and your significant other a pair of latte lovin’ baristas? A super cute way to top off your reception dinner is with a decorated coffee bar! K-cups, creamer and sweeteners can be stocked – along with custom favor mugs or to-go cups.

CUPCAKE TIERS

Everyone loves cupcakes – you can’t go wrong with these delectable minis. You can ask your bakery to include a variety of popular flavors so everyone’s sweet tooth is satisfied. The display possibilities are virtually endless so it’s a perfect dessert option for any theme or venue!

cakepopcastleA CAKE POP COLLECTION

Another super functional way to pass out sugar! Aside from cake pops being being so frickin’ cute, they are fabulous because they’re so easy to eat and guests won’t need extra plates/utensils/napkins to enjoy them. Less waste + less clean up + more money to put towards other things (like shoes) = one happy bride.

DESSERT IS A MAJOR HIGHLIGHT OF THE RECEPTION – SERVE IT UP IN STYLE &

TREAT YO SELF.
