Step 1. Choose your Servingware…

Firstly, decide on the type of sweet treats you want to lay on. If you’ve decided to ditch the added expense of a traditional wedding cake, you may find a sumptuous sweet table filled with a few home made treats is a little more budget-friendly. Whether you plan to delight with an array of pick ‘n’ mix style sweeties or a decadence of desserts and cakes, Wedding Ideas Shop have every style of dish, pedestal, jar, glass, tub and bowl you’ll need to create a sophisticated spread. The secret to a visually stunning sweet table is to consider a variety of heights to create real impact. Don’t feel you have to cram every inch of your table either. While cakes, doughnuts and meringues will shine from a cake stand or pedestal bowl, vintage jars and fish bowls will seduce guests to the classic sweet shop shelf favourites.
