Pick a Color Palette

Picking your wedding color palette is the number one thing to consider before designing your candy or dessert table. This is the very step before you can even consider thinking about your design of a sweet table at a wedding.

What is your wedding theme? What are your color themes?  It’s not necessary to limit yourself to a single color hue, as long as everything is aesthetically pleasing, feel free to choose a whole spectrum of colors that go well together.

Add Dimension

The next thing you should consider when planning out your sweet table at a wedding is adding some dimension to your candy jars as well as plates that you will be using.

Choose a range of shapes and sizes to add depth and height to your design!

Keep in mind the size of your buffet table. Typically a one 6 foot table works well for dessert tables. Don’t be afraid to stack some boxes under some jars to give it height!

If the boxes are not pretty, cover it with the linens you are using to set up.

Get all your jars from Amazon! They have amazing deals right here!

Accessorize, Accessorize and Accessorize 

We love to accessorize.

Use some of your decor elements to add to your candy buffet. A nice backdrop would work, large mirrors or frames!

Balloons also do wonders if they are huge and are a neutral color!

Add some flowers and candles to add to the theme and ambiance. Definitely theme it as much as possible like just like your wedding, every detail counts!

Don’t forget your cute scoops, tongs, and baggies for the guests to put the candy in.

Customize your napkins to match your theme (add your event date, your name to the napkin). Take a look at all your candy accessories right here
