Having a sweet table at a wedding is now a firm trend. Many couples choose this idea and offer various sweets and pastries in addition to the traditional wedding cake. Guests can pick what they like most among an assortment of mouth-watering treats!
As for decor, sweet tables are a great occasion to play with your wedding theme, thanks to pretty details: decorative garlands, beautiful serving dishes, suspensions, decorative objects and other elements can help your scene get alive.
For this exclusive inspiration, Lisa Renault and I chose to create a delicate sweet table with pastel colors. The decor was entirely handmade thanks Michael stores who supplied to necessary material. Tutorials to come within the next few weekd will give you all the tips you’ll need to recreate this soft and festive mood. Stay tuned!
Our color palette: pastel and gold
Pastel colors are trendy and we had a blast to build a decor that uses some. Light pink, mauve and minth green fed our inspiration. We added some golden elements for a glamourous touch. Of course, we gave a large part of the space to a classic and chic white, not only in the decor, but also through the French calissons placed with a geometric design.
Do you know les Glaceurs? If not, I urge you to discover this decadent boutique in no time. Their delicious mint green and pale pink cupcakes are just too pretty on the table. The bakery also prepared a cute naked cake for the occasion, with a mint green frosting: thank you, team!
I am also a big fan of the foliage, which gives a warm and cozy feeling to the whole table. It’s almost tropical and I love this! A darker shade of green emphasizes the rest of the color palette and I just adore the refined and gorgeous result.
A decor 100% DIY
You can’t ignore that Vous pouvez embrasser la mariée is a DIY-lover blog. We love handmade creations and we try to give as much importance as possible to do-it-yourself elements. It was then very natural for me to create the decor of the pastel colors sweet table inspiration from A to Z!
In the next few weeks, I will explain to you how to proceed to create each of these elements:
- A tassel garland made of tissue paper
- A mini bunting banner as an extra cute cake topper
- A thread suspension
- A lace suspension on a paper lantern
- Parchment paper cones very easy to make
- Luminous letters made of cardboard paper
