Creative Dessert Displays

In my last post we discussed designing fabulous backdrops for your dessert tables. Today I want to show you some examples of creative ways to display your desserts. The party doesn't start and end at the cupcake stand, ladies!

I love how in this ice cream parlor station the toppings are neatly and beautifully displayed in a cutlery box that's been painted white. The box adds so much interest and gives the table a more professional look, than say... bowls. (Eat Drink Chic)

Check out how cute these cupcakes look when displayed in a cabinet instead of a cupcake stand! Now that makes a statement. (Katie Cassidy Photography, via Celebrations at Home)

How about displaying your desserts in a bookcase rather than on a table! (P.S. I Love This)

And while we're talking about creative dessert displays, the next photo takes the cake! The dessert was displayed on a miniature pink picnic table! Adorable, fun and unique. (Jose Designs)

I love the charming look of this 2 tiered buffet table. It was an old piece, given a new life with a coating of paint in a happy color, and it serves treats in an old world enchanting sort of way. (Pen N' Paperflowers)
