We’re loving the party trend of candy and dessert buffets! Don’t worry, nothing will be replacing the beautiful wedding cake or themed bat & bar mitzvah or party cakes anytime soon. Rather, the dessert table has gotten much bigger to make room for a variety of sweet treats.
Dessert tables are another area where you can get creative, and leave a lasting impression on your guests.
