Set the table with tasty, easy-to-make food sure to impress your guests. When displaying foods or desserts, always keep height in mind. Stands and compotes of various sizes and heights add interest to the presentation.
When setting your table, simple place settings with a splash of color make a big impact. Ruffle place mats and table runners are paired with square white plates to balance the frilly with the streamlined. Add a cupcake to each place setting to make a friendly impression when guests sit down for brunch.
When planning a brunch, range food options from savory to sweet and include a signature drink, like mimosas. Favorite brunch choices include layered banana pudding, deviled eggs and individual Bundt cakes.
Get creative and think beyond traditional table seating and standard dessert-table styling. Displaying foods and desserts in an unexpected manner enhances their appeal, especially when using gorgeous serving plates and stands. When shopping, look for white or glass serving pieces so they can be used for any holiday or event.
Don't forget to consider the backdrop of the area you are working with and use fabric or decorations to complete the design and hide any unsightly distractions. Paper medallions add depth and color, creating an eye-catching background to the dessert table.
When styling event surroundings, get creative with what you already have. In addition to the rustic dining table and carved bench at this party, an iron shelf is used as an extra serving surface for everyone's favorite course, dessert.
