Dessert Table Anatomy

Dessert Tables 101

Creating a beautiful dessert table can be done quite easily if you understand the basic components the professionals use.  We used an Amy Atlas Dessert Table as a premier example of how to style your table.

We chose this table because it's colorful, simple, and effortless to recreate.  The color scheme can be used for most any occasion, the styling is so universal, and the selection of delicious desserts are would be familiar to your guests.
