Every Wedding Calls For This Stunning DIY Dessert Buffet

Wedding Dessert Bar Ideas

POPSUGAR's own video host of Eat the Trend and Get the Dish had a stunning wedding in Malibu complete with the most amazing dessert table. If you're looking for inspiration for your own dessert bar complete with gorgeous cupcakes, candies, and more, read ahead for Brandi's story and see photos of every sweet treat.

My husband Chris and I both have a major sweet tooth, so when it came to choosing a dessert for our wedding, we decided to feature all of our favorite treats. It was so fun curating all of the candy and cookies we both love. Instead of using a traditional rectangle table for the display, we used a metal shelving unit from Cost Plus World Market. Not only did it make for a great way to feature all of the desserts, but it provided a beautiful backdrop for our sweetheart table.

My former business partner (we used to own Sweet Party Stix, a desserts catering company) and friend, Miranda Kelley, helped with the design and setup. She used apothecary jars, cake stands, shadow boxes, and mirrored platters for the sweets and placed them symmetrically on each shelf. I made the menu tents using one of my favorite watercolor fonts and rose gold cardstock.

We were beyond happy with how everything turned out. After our cake cutting, we opened the dessert table up to our guests, and it was like watching kids in a candy store filling their plates and to-go bags. I even got texts from family and friends days later with photos of treats they brought home.
