DIY: Dessert Table Planning

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

So you have a concept for a grand dessert table. A magnificent plan. Maybe you've even sketched it out, like I did. But will it all fit?

Are you sure?

The last thing you want is to be surprised in the hours leading up to your big event.

To avoid just such a scenario, a couple weeks before the Cornish fairy party, I took all of the serving dishes and floral containers I intended to use, and played around with them until I had a solid plan. Then I took pictures.
 

 
When it came time to set up, I knew I had a roadmap ready. All decisions were made. If necessary, I could show the picture to a friend and delegate the duty (this always comes in handy, no matter how early I think I'm starting).
 
It may take a little extra time, but it is so worth it for the peace of mind.
