How many desserts do I need for a dessert table?
We normally recommend 3-4 mini desserts per person if your guests aren’t eating a slice of cake. As far as options go, you don’t want to overwhelm your guests with too many choices so we typically say only do 2-3 more options than the amount you are allotting each guest.
How do you display desserts?
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 I keep my dessert table cool?
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 calculate dessert buffet?
A simple trick: if you’re working with small, individual desserts (cookies, cupcakes, petit fours, donuts, etc.) in lieu of a typical tiered wedding cake, multiply the number of guests expected by 2.5 to determine the number of desserts you’ll need.
How do you set up a party table?
Party tables are perfect for pretty much any event. Simple tips on how to set up a party table
- Choose a simple, elegant style. The style of your party table is obviously going to depend on what kind of party you’re planning.

What goes on a dessert table at a wedding?
Fill a table with chocolate-dunked goodies like Rice Krispies bars and caramel apples. Or have a chocolate fountain with dippers like fruit skewers, bite-size brownies and soft pretzels (for that delectable salty- sweet combo). And if chocolate brown doesn’t fit your wedding palette, choose a different hue.
How many mini desserts do I need for 50 people?
Is that ok? Contrary to the recent thread in etiquette re. this issue, I do not agree that you need enough of each flavor for each guest (e.g. 4 cupcake flavors x 50 people = 200 cupcakes; 5 mini pie flavors x 50 = 250 mini pies; 50 cookies, 50 servings of cake). That’s 550 servings of dessert for 50 people.
How much dessert do I need for 30 people?
It’s a safe bet to count one serving per person. You’re planning an event for 30 people? Order three dozen. That extra six is a good buffer.
