A Sweet Treat!

Erin, Stylist

I love the holidays for the time spent with family, the gifts, the good cheer everywhere you turn, and (I must admit) for the amazing desserts! Sweet treats aren't just for the holidays, though, you can incorporate your love of pastry, candy and cookies on your big day, too! I am not just talking delicious wedding cake either, imagine a delectable dessert table piled high with every kind of tatsty treat imaginable! From the elegant to the comforting, here are a just a few treats showing up at receptions today:
  • Coke floats: Have vanilla ice cream pre-scooped in tall glasses with cans of coke and fun straws to match your color scheme. Your guests will be glad for sugary pick-me-up to help keep the party going!
  • Macarons: This chic french delicacy can be made in any flavor (and color) combo you can think of. A lemon macaron with vanilla-lavender buttercream, I DO!
  • Doughnuts: Thats right! Give your guests something to smile about by serving fresh hot doughnuts or beignets right at your reception. Don't want to do a-la-minute? Give guests a cute bag of two mini doughnuts-the resemblance to wedding bands is deliciously uncanny, and a monogrammed sticker adds that personalized finishing touch.

  • Cookie Bar: Homemade cookies are hard to beat when it comes to wedding favors. Have different sized and colored bell jars with hand-made labels filled with family recipes like dark chocolate cherry and molasses sugar cookies. Or, give out colorful bags of a few different flavors with the recipes as tags!
Hope you are inspired to create a unique sweet ending to your wedding day!
