9 genius dessert table ideas

From vintage to modern and quirky, we have some serious #partyinspo for your next party. Here are some dessert table ideas to try:

1. No horsing around

Fun doesn’t always have to be loud and kitschy. The carousel theme is given a dainty and elegant twist with these mini hot pink-to-coral layered cakes, teal icing and a sparkly gold horse topper.

2. Chase away the blues

Sticking to one colour theme for your dessert table can work, as long as there are different shades of the colour and intricate details to prevent the table from looking flat. Just be sure to display them against a table that allows the colour to stand out.

3. Let’s flamingle

What do palm trees and flamingoes have to do with anything? Probably very little but you have to be a serious hater to be put off by a tropical-themed dessert table. Balloons in soft pink and orange, heaps of saturated green fauna, pineapples galore and flamingo standees … voila, the dessert table is instant Instagram bait.

4. Look at this stuff, isn’t it neat?

What a cute way to flesh out a mermaid/under the sea theme. We love the pastel coloured fondant mermaid tail cake toppers but obviously, the cakes take the cake here. There’s no need to be this baller and have three at your dessert table. Any one of them would be a worthy centrepiece.

5. Me want cookie

Don’t feel the need to limit yourself to the usual offerings. This cookie bar down to the handwritten heart-shaped labels for each flavour is easy to execute. You can even provide little bags for people to pack their own goodie bags of cookies!

6. Desert table

The theme for your dessert table doesn’t always have to be directly related to the nature of the party. Instead, draw inspiration from nature itself. These succulent and cacti treats are easy on the eye.

7. Are you cereals?

Another alternative to the usual approach to a dessert table. This cereal bar is something you can recreate on your own easily. You can even make it more lavish with a spread of toppings like fresh fruit, rainbow sprinkles and Nutella.

8. Ready, set, drawer

When it comes to a dessert table, presentation’s sometimes more important than the actual offering. The idea of using a white vintage table to display the goodies might not be anything new but we love the idea of using the drawers to reveal hidden treats. Just remember to line the drawers!

9. Painterly strokes

Going all out on every item on a dessert table can become an expensive affair. Instead focus on a few key items that people are going to talk about. These hand painted mini cake doughnuts are a great, simple way of making sure your dessert table is memorable.
