How To WOW Your Guests With A Dessert Table Like None Other


Looking to make a splash with your wedding guests? Have you thought about setting up a "grazing table"? Not sure what that is? Well, we will let our partners in this post, Bijou's Sweet Treats, fill you in! 

"The grazing style table showcases an over-the-top opulence made with flat and low-height desserts in a fanned design. With occasional stacks of desserts and a few tiers and stands for height and to draw the eyes' attention to certain aspects of the table, the design nods to these elements and encourages to step back and look at the table as a whole before a more thorough close inspections of all the flavors, colors, and deliciousness."

A Top-notch team

Once the vision for the table was settled upon, the Bijou's staff gathered together an amazing, top-notch team of vendors excited to exceed expectations and bring the table to life. Walden Hall, as a premium, luxury bed and breakfast wedding venue, was deemed the perfect setting for this table! Abby from Blakemore's Flowers was brought on to create a gorgeous set of florals, a mini pampas runner with 2 stunning displays mixing both dried and real flowers. Besides the florals for the table, Blakemore's also made 2 beautiful bridal bouquets to match the theme, one for the bride and one for her bridesmaid. 

Valley Heirlooms provided the super cool low-legged farm tables, specifically designed and crafted for couples looking for a more communal and rustic feel for their wedding. Additionally, Valley Heirlooms arranged their vintage rugs stylishly beneath the tables with pillow seating to match the theme of the feast. 

Alexa Ann Photography did an unbelievable job capturing the entire set up and the full mood and beauty of the shoot! The gold stands used for the shoot were from Opulent Treasures and mixed amongst some long, clear acrylic boxes from Cal-Mil. Kaylee Rose did an outstanding job with on-site hair and makeup for the models, Kristen & Meredith. Both dresses were provided by Bridal Impressions by Amanda's Touch in Harrisonburg.
