Stunning Dessert Table Inspiration

Southern Maryland couples think outside the box when it comes to how they present their cake, cupcakes, and other sweet treats. Here are four creative ideas we’ve seen in recent real Southern Maryland weddings posted to our website.

Focus on the Cake

Not only is your cake delicious, it’s a stunning piece of art, too! We love it when couples choose a special piece of furniture for their cake table – something antique or vintage, perhaps. With the right table coverings and minimal decorations, you can put your cake in the spotlight.

Use Your Theme and Color Scheme

Do more than place your cake on a table with a table cloth that coordinates with your wedding colors. Work your theme into the display! Whether you’re going beach or nautical or are working with a defined color scheme, add decorations to make your cake pop.

Serve Favorite Treats

Whether you’re serving a traditional wedding cake or not, adding extra treats to your cake table is sure to delight your guests. Choose family favorites, Grandma or Mom’s specialties, or treats you love and present them alongside your cake. This treatment works for cupcakes, too, if you’re serving them in place of or in addition to your cake.

The most dynamic treat presentations use several levels – tiers and towers make your treat table dynamic rather than flat.

Set Up a Candy Buffet

Guests love a candy buffet, and it’s an easy favor option. The best candy buffets present sweets in interesting vessels – apothecary jars, plates, bowls, etc. – in a variety of levels. Like the treat tables above, levels make your candy buffet table interesting.
