When it comes to event design, we like to consider all elements – including the presentation of the food. Dessert buffets are especially fun to create. We like when we can reveal them as a bit of a surprise to guests after dinner.
Here are some of our favorite dessert buffets:
The library at the Fairmont Penthouse, with its iconic desk and dramatic architecture, made a great backdrop to this dessert buffet. We used stacks of old books to create risers and add some variation in height.
For this wedding at Farmstead, we placed the cake on a rustic stand atop a wooden farm table. Guests enjoyed jars of chocolate crème pies as others roasted marshmallows for s’mores by the firepits.
The bride’s family provided beautiful glass and silver platters for this elegant dessert buffet a Kohl Mansion. There were treats from the couple’s favorite SF bakeries (including Anthony’s Cookies and Mission Minis), as well as traditional Indian desserts served in hammered copper containers.
For a woodsy wedding in Santa Cruz, the bride and groom chose to have an assortment of rustic desserts: bread pudding, berry cobbler, pecan pie bites, mini fruit tarts, lemon bars, and dark chocolate truffles.
