This weekend’s wedding had one of the most AMAZING (and delicious if I do say so myself) dessert bars that I have ever seen. But until I can share those decadent photos with you – here is a little wedding inspiration for you in terms of dessert bars, pie bars and candy buffets. Of course they can be wildly whimsical (think bright colors, bunting, flags, etc). Or take a similar idea and run with a candy bar.
And yes, there are several sources for color coordinated candy. We have come a long long way from M & M’s being the only option. Just a few things to keep in mind for your delicious dessert buffet!
The pie bar above was created by Teacup Bakery for a lovely rustic wonderland wedding we did a few years ago. And the dessert bar below was for a smaller Ranch wedding. The key to the display is to pick an element (wood, glass, color, texture, etc) and carry it through the design
And this was certainly one of my all time favorites from Betsy and Craig’s wedding at the T Lazy 7 Ranch outside of Aspen last summer
Signage – make sure your baker sets up the display with the correct signage. In these times of overwhelming nut allergies and rising cases of celiac disease – make sure that your guests know what they are eating!
Portions – with smaller bite sized or mini desserts – plan on 3-4 per guest (in addition to the candy)
Bags and Boxes – provide your guests with a way to take some the delectable goodies home with them! Personalized bags, boxes, chinese take-out containers – the options are endless!
