My FI wants one, it’s one thing he’s made reference towards, so we’re including it and im excited about it. I’ve contacted a local bakery and they’ll be doing it for us, and it will included a traditional but small two layer cake, two types of pies, assorted cookies, cupcakes and maybe more, depending on our final number.
Anyone done one? How did you display it, and what did you have in it? And did you make that your favor? We’re going to get some small boxes and do that as our favor, as I leave all favors at weddings unless I can eat them lol. And any photos of yours? Or if you”re planning on it, what are you doing for yours?

cirk: Make sure that whomever is cutting your desserts knows that they need to be cut into smaller than normal pieces. When there is a dessert buffet, people tend to try more than one dessert.
You can personalize the presentation to the theme or colors of your wedding. Make sure to elevate the back row of desserts so they are easily reachable.
You can collect pie and cake stands, or you can make your own using plates, candlesticks and E6000 glue.

We had a dessert bar but it consisted of with brownie sundae bar, strawberry shortcake bar, and apple pie bar. It was just set up on a long table with decorative linens and bowls and other decor. Our guests had a blast creating their own concoctions.
We did not make the dessert bar our favors but also had homemade jams, pickled veggies, etc in decorative jars with personalized labels.

We are having mini strawberry cheesecakes, mini pecan & cherry pies, heart shaped sugar cookies, & cake pops. Yum!!!
Yes, it is their favor. We bought custom kraft baggies off etsy with our names on it so they can take some with them. A banner that says “love is sweet” & monogrammed napkins.

cirk: Adorable!! OMG – pies!!
We’re having 5 different flavors of regular sized “gourmet” cupcakes (lemon vanilla, smores, snickerdoodle, salted caramel and I forgot the last one!!), mini “classics” (choc, van, red velvet) and a makeshift candy station. I found these interesting vases and will stock up on halloween candy come November 1 when they’re practically giving it away lol. It STILL cost us less than a traditional cake and lends itself to so much variety!!
Oh, and score, we found these cute single serving coffees in unique flavors for $1 each, so we bought 50 and will have them in a basket for people to take!
3 words: CHRISTMAS. TREE. SHOPS.
cls9q: I JUST commented on your stamp thread and said I nixed the napkins, but I didn’t consider to use them for dessert! LOL now I’m back on that bandwagon!!
