The Rise of Dessert Tables for Weddings
A dessert table is table filled with sweets, bite-sized cakes and pastries placed near the reception table at the entrance of the ballroom, known also as the foyer. Initially they are for the consumption of guests who arrive early while waiting for dinner to start, similar to the function of a pre-dinner cocktail session.
Recently, it has come to include prettily packed sweets and also wedding favors placed on dessert tables rather than their normal placement at guests' tables. It is predicted for dessert tables to get bigger in size and significance in the coming year.
