Dessert Displays that Make the Party
Paper Medallion Display
Forget balloons! These paper medallions are sure to lure guests the second they walk into the party. Petite Party Studio doubles up on adorableness with a fringy garland.
Hanging Dessert Display
Lovely like watermelon, this dessert display sticks to shades of pink and green. Be Crafty gets extra fancy by stringing not only streamers, but fringy garlands, paper medallions, and even a string of ticket stubs!
Floral Cake Display
Naked cakes are super trendy right now. This one -- shot by Louise Vorster Photography -- intrigues guests with a little floral persuasion. Serve it atop a thick slice of tree trunk for a rustic finish.
Dyed Tablecloth Display
Who knew an old white sheet could be the life of the party? We use liquid Rit Dye in hues such as fuchsia, petal pink, and golden yellow to color it up.
Take that vintage dresser hiding in your basement and turn it into a showstopping dessert station. The Wedding Display uses tiers in an assortment of heights for contrast.
Dreamy Garden Display
Crisp apples and both real and paper flowers dress up this dreamy dessert display. Give it some glitz with rose gold accents, then top with fruity sodas for the best ice cream float bar you've ever seen.
Painted Paper Plate Display
Painted paper plates deck the walls of this sweet little treat display. Be Crafty plays off her poppy pink lemonade with fresh, summery hues. And that cute chalkboard memo: golden!
Dress your dessert table in dahias -- aka the garden's most fiery flower. Burnett's Boards scatters the pretty bloom across her autumn berry wedding display for dramatic pops of color.
Candy Bar Dessert Display
Because who doesn't love a good old-fashioned candy bar? This display calls for pails of candy and bunches of balloons. Pick an analogous color scheme to keep the display cohesive.
Succulent Cheese Cake Display
Surprise! This gorgeous cake shot by The TomKat Studio for Real California Milk isn't actually cake -- it's cheese. Play up your "dessert" table with something unexpected, then decorate with succulents for a fun, desert feel.

Ice Cream Display
Play it cool at your next party with an ice cream social. This display stars homemade purees and edible flowers. A simple striped table runner keeps it colorful.
DIY Tablecloth Display
You'll never guess the secret to this hazy watercolor tablecloth -- and no, it's not tie-dye! We used a mix of fresh berries to stain it, then strung a wire over top so you can pin up as much fun flair as you please.
Cake Tier Display
Paint cake stands of various heights and sizes to show off your gorgeous cupcakes. This one sticks to a spring palette with soft pastels and a sunny yellow.
