This Seasonal Dessert Table is dressed for Halloween, but with a few quick changes, it can accommodate your fall wedding. Inexpensive paper fans are hung together to create a sculptural look. You can create the same style with any type of paper lantern. Check www.pearlriver.com to find a variety of styles straight from NYC's Chinatown. The dark iron urn could easily be holding willow branches in copper or silver to create a more seasonal (and not Halloween) feel. You might even want to incorporate this into your escort card table. Replace the sweets with favors, or give guests a pre-dinner snack!
This design was created for a birthday, but can easily take on many different wedding colors. The whimsical boards are easy to create. Buy a standard bulletin board and cover it with your favorite fabric or wrapping paper. Straight pins hold pre-assembled bags of candy (these could be escort cards), while more bags can be available to encourage guests to create their own assortment. I love the "Take a Sweet" message created with sugar cookies. What better way to let your guests know they are invited to partake than with cookies! Just be careful that the ring bearer doesn't steal a letter before the reception begins :-)
