….and we had a sweet table.
The venue had this perfect little alcove by the stairs to the balcony. It was the perfect place to put the sweet table.
We had a few old doors that the bride had borrowed from her cousin. I had one of the bride”s friends paint the word “Sweets” on a chalkboard that we had cut in half.
The other half we used for the cupcake tables.
The doors are standing up by screwing in large shelf brackets to the back of the door and holding them down with sand bags, covered in burlap.
The table is filled with all sorts of tasty treats. This is an inexpensive way to provide food for your wedding. We had tons of lovely women knocking down the door to help with this wedding. People want to help and refreshments is a great way to harness that help. A friend of the bride”s mom made tons of cookies.
Another friend made brownies and the bride ordered Texas state flag cookies for her Texas born groom.
I filled in the rest of the table with left over strawberries from the cupcake table, mason jars filled with lollipops, and Jars filled with candy.
We gathered together serving
platters from family members and friends. (every peice had a piece of painters tape on the bottom with a name) The table was sweet for sure! What was even sweeter was how inexpensive this little table turned out to be. The only thing bought for this table (out of the bride”s budget) were the texas cookies, strawberries, table cloth and candy!
I am not going to lie…I spent most of time here at the reception. Vickie”s cookies and Jana”s brownies are to die for. (Those who know them…can I get an Amen?)
Speaking of Sweet…isn”t it sweet that its Friday?
