A well prepared dessert is a sight to behold; prior to digging into it that is.
Because so much effort goes into the presentation of a tasty tiramisu, mousse or other assorted sweets, the manner of delivery is crucial.
That’s where finding the right dessert table ideas becomes imperative. To assist you in this most important endeavor, here are the best dessert table ideas.
Hand carved, dual purpose dessert table ideas are ideal; as is this Pemberton Cordial Caddy from Design Toscano. Technically, this table is designed to be a classy way to bring the bar to you; rarely a bad use of precious energy. But slide the aperitif over to the side; drop on a few dessert samples and voila! Dessert table at your service.
Fashionable space maker
Multi-purpose furnishings, you gotta’ love ‘em. Quality furnishings are an expensive proposition, so why not get the most bang for your buck by focusing your search on porter tables like this one? Look for the best artisans in the country, and the hand finishing and attention to detail is easy to spot. Oh, and free shipping will keep an extra few dollars in your pocket, right where it belongs.
Exotic and functional
If your tastes in food – think green tea ice cream, ginger cake and Cham-Cham – run to the exotic, these clever and practical nesting tables make a statement serving desserts table-side or in the living room if your guests choose comfier seating for after dinner. Nesting tables save space and can be split for simple chair-side service.
A la Francais
Petite French table
Most any list of dessert table ideas needs to include at least a couple of French inspired furnishings; they certainly take their dessert serious enough. Which many of us are glad they do, because the results are outstanding. A great way to match a finely prepared example from the Patisserie is to present your culinary extravaganza via a Brasserie Café Table. Fine French pastries deserve a fine French dessert table from American Country Home Store.
Elegant cherry finish
A quick change here, a quick change there, and your beautiful dessert table ideas become stunning, functional coffee tables. The cherry finish adds a touch of elegance; somehow a bowl of M&M’s would seem to be lacking that certain something when offered on this piece from Touch of Class. No, this table needs some type of mousse, maybe a crème brulee or other delicious pastry; something worthy of craftsmanship.
Glass and metal cart
Classic dessert service
Taking desserts to your guests just got a lot easier, and more stylish, with this table. This glass top metal cart is custom designed and hand made. When you order one, that’s when they’ll build it specifically for you.
