How To Create A Rustic Wedding Dessert Table

A wedding cake table backdrop is guaranteed to look gorgeous and it’s an easy way of adding the wow factor to your wedding venue. A hessian or burlap backdrop will look wonderful behind your dessert table. However, you could also use some rustic brown paper as a backdrop. If you’re providing your guests with various yummy treats, we love the thought of writing the menu selection on the paper.

Wooden pallets would also make a unique backdrop your dessert or cake table, and they’re the perfect way to add a rustic touch to your decor. If you wanted to add a pop of colour, simply tie some ribbons or pretty balloons to the pallets. Blooms and foliage are also the perfect match for wooden backdrops.

Make a statement with a rustic wedding dessert table by using a combination of wooden crates and ladders. You can decorate the ladders with greenery, lanterns or vases full of flowers. If you are using wooden crates as part of your rustic wedding dessert table, we suggest using them as part of your centrepieces too. You could also use them to hold your confetti cones or wedding programs. This will keep your wedding decor looking coordinated.
