Making a Display: Tips for your dessert table.

Want to create a killer dessert table? Mini displays of varying heights will create visual interest, while a custom backdrop will bring the setup center stage. Small details like matching cupcake liners help tie in your theme, while dessert tags are great for your pickier guests (and can be as cute as you want). To make it even more special, include some pretty fruits like pomegranates or dragon fruit. And don’t forget the mini take-home boxes so guests can get a sweet fix after they go. —Sari Baum
