DIY Dessert Table: Your Guide to a Sweet & Show-Stopping Spread

DIY Dessert Table: Your Guide to a Sweet & Show-Stopping Spread

Hey party people! Simer here, your Dessert Chef from EatWithSimer.

Let's be real – who doesn't love a gorgeous dessert table?

They look like something straight out of a magazine, all fancy and intimidating.

But guess what? You can totally create one at home without breaking a sweat (or your budget!).

Setting Up a Show-Stopping Spread is Easier Than You Think 💬

 This list has all the inspo you need for an easy & dazzling spread! ✨

1️⃣ Guest List & Budget: Planning is Key

First things first, let's get organised. Figure out how many people you'll be serving and how much you're comfortable spending on desserts. This will help you stay on track and avoid any last-minute stress.

2️⃣ Pick Your Canvas: Get Creative

Forget needing a fancy table. Your dessert table can be anywhere with a flat surface. Kitchen benchtop? Perfect! Dining table? Absolutely! A random antique chest you found at a flea market? Go for it!

Bonus tip: Spread a beautiful tablecloth on the table to instantly elevate the look and create a polished backdrop for your sweet treats.

3️⃣ Order Desserts: Shameless Plug Time 😜

Listen, I'm not saying you have to order from me (okay, maybe a little bit). But seriously, supporting small businesses like us is the way to go. Our Gulab Jamun Rabdi Mousse and Mini Gulab Jamun teacakes are basically dessert table royalty. Plus, who doesn't love a dessert inspired by everyone's favorite gulab jamun? 🤤

4️⃣ Tier-rific Presentation: Kmart to the Rescue!

Time to channel your inner interior designer. Head to Kmart and grab a wooden tiered platter and some cute platters. Not only does this look super chic, but it's also practical. More tiers = more desserts!

Who knew Kmart could be so fancy?

5️⃣ Theme It Up: Unleash Your Inner Pinterest Queen (or King)

Okay, this step is totally optional, but hear me out. A theme makes your dessert table look cohesive and Instagram-worthy. It could be anything from a tropical paradise to a vintage tea party. Let your imagination run wild!

6️⃣ Add Some Flair: Think Beyond the Dessert

Flowers, candles, fairy lights, cute little signs – these are your secret weapons. They add personality and make your dessert table look like a million bucks (without the price tag).Greenery Touch: Add a touch of nature with eucalyptus garlands from catchaustralia just like in this reel. It's a simple way to bring the outdoors in and create a fresh, inviting atmosphere.

7️⃣ Don't Forget the Basics: Plates, Napkins, and Utensils

I know, I know, this part isn't as exciting. But trust me, your guests will appreciate having something to eat their desserts with.

8️⃣ Take a Step Back and Admire: You Did It!

Now step back and give yourself a pat on the back. You just created a dessert table that would make Martha Stewart jealous. All that's left to do is snap a few pics (don't forget to tag @eatwithsimer on Instagram!) and enjoy the sweet fruits of your labor.

Ready to get your dessert on? Let's chat! I'd love to help you create a dessert table that'll have your guests drooling.
