Sweet Treats

I am so inspired by the many dessert tables that I have been seeing around town, but the most fabulous and inspiring dessert tables have to be from the one and only Amy Atlas. Now, if you are not familiar with her work and you are interested in having a fun dessert table at your wedding her site is the place to go.  The best part about drawing inspiration from others is that most of the time you can re-create all on your own! 

Damask Black & Green Inspired Table

It's such a great look when you put the candy in Apothecary jars. Over this past year I have bought some fabulous ones and reasonable at that! The best ones I have found are either at Home Goods (one of my faves) or at Save-On-Crafts (which has been an amazing "go-to" place for wedding decor). Click here to see...

Cupcake wrappers shown in this pic, are such an amazing way to dress it up! I have found gorgeous ones here...Cupcake trees are another way to display them too! Click here

Another example of how to display your candy/dessert table..
I love the idea of setting up your table to go with your color scheme. 
Here is a great place to buy all your candy by color..Click Here.

Having a candy table is also another alternative for favors. In lieu of having a favor at every person's seat, you can make it interactive for your guests and let them choose candy to take home!
Doing small takeout boxes in the earth tone is always a fun idea and you can always have a sticker made or stamp with your names to make it more personal...Click Here for boxes.
