Sweets table

Hi everyone! What would you include on a sweets table and how much of everything ?? We have 110 people and I don’t really want to waste anything. We’re doing a small cake for photo ops and such, but other than that everything will be desserts

    One thing we forgot to have was a vegan dessert option on our table, it completely slipped my mind until one of our guests asked me if there was anything that was dairy free.

    We had a couple of pies, cupcakes, macarons for a gluten free option (of course we remembered gluten free but not dairy free) brownies and our wedding cake.

    Everything got eaten, we barely even got to it ourselves except for during our cake cutting. For reference we had about 70 guests

    We are having sweet table as well with pies. cupcakes. cheesecakes, cookies etc. To ensure nothing goes to waste, we are going to have boxes for guests to take any extras home.

    Are you serving a dessert course as part of your venue. If your meal comes with dessert, that affects how much a sweet table you'll need if you don't want too much extra left that may go to waste.

    Jamie Wolfer has a video on YouTube all about dessert tables, I found it very helpful and will be using that video as reference when I'm finalizing our dessert table

    I've read that dessert should be for approximately 70-80% of your guest list (its possible you may have older relatives who leave early/people with dietary restrictions won't have sweets). Pick an assortment of petit-fours or cupcakes and fruit and get enough so that everyone can at least have one or two out of the selection. You definitely don't need one of everything for each guest (unless you want to make it simple and just do cupcakes for example).

    Assorted pastries can be a good way to serve different varieties. Cutting down on the servings may help since some guests don't have a sweet tooth. Fruit is also a great way to give the other healthy alternative.
