Display desserts in a prominent location. Your dessert bar should be placed in a prominent location. A large table, for instance, will draw attention to guests. Place the table in a well-lit location near the bar for the best traffic. Be sure to cover the table with linens that coordinate with your decor.
How do you keep dessert cold on a dessert table?
Use a large bucket of ice cubes or even dry ice to hold frozen desserts until they are eaten. You can position ice cream sandwiches, popsicles and other frozen sweets in the ice. The ice will keep them cold and should last long enough for the dessert session.
How do you add height to a buffet table?
