Dessert Display Ideas | The 530 Bride

What is your wedding style?

Brides are finding freedom with their wedding cake designs, flavors and display options then ever before.  Couples often use their wedding cake and desserts as the focal point of their wedding reception which means it will get a lot of attention from guests.  It's not all about the cake itself, how you display your cake  and desserts can also add to the overall effect.  Display your wedding desserts with one of these five display styles: 

Classic

Remember your desserts can be an accent, or a standalone feature of your wedding and doesn't necessarily have to jive with your whole "theme" or specific palette.  Go for a personal touch or use materials that really create a focal point for your reception, and if you need ideas ask your wedding planner, or consult with your photographer as they will know the types of materials that photograph well.

Take this time to celebrate the ones you love, and enjoy all of the candy that comes along with this fun holiday! Cupid works his magic around this time of year, so we aren't suprised we have already seen several couples get engaged this week! While every couple celebrates differently, we believe you can show you care in simple ways and you don't have to go over the top.  Whether you are a new couple or have been married for years consider some of the fun gift ideas and activities available in our area. 1. If your sweetie has a sweet tooth pick up some goodies that you both will enjoy Cupcake Crusader, Chico Sublime Cake Design, Redding Upper Crust, Chico CocoAmatrice Artisan Chocolates, Paradise Shuberts Ice Cream & Candy, Chico Powell's Sweet Shoppe, Chico The Cookie Tree, Yuba City

2. Suprise your sweetie with lunch or his/her favorite coffee Stop by his/her work with some lunch or maybe a coffee, we bet you will get a smile from ear to ear!  Guys: throw in a single stem flower to add a simple and romantic detail to her suprise. 3. Confess Your Love If cards aren't your style and you have a smartphone or camera phone, confess your love in a short video. Be yourself, if you aren't comfortable in front of the camera consider making a slide show including some of your favorite photos together. Add some music as a finishing touch, and your sweetie is sure to keep it forever.

5.  Say Cheese Valentines Day is a great excuse to get dressed up and snap some pictures, why not have a professional take them for you? Call around to some of the local photographers for a casual photoshoot to capture this romantic day.  If you already have photos, choose your favorite and find a beautiful frame.

Last but not least, you can't go wrong with a beautiful bouquet of flowers! Chico Florist Salvagno's Events Marshall's Floral & Fine Gifts The Garden Gate The Country Florist
