Behind the Scenes – Constructing a Dessert Table

By: Amy Atlas, in Behind The Scenes

Last week, I showed a little glimpse of a table we were working on for one of my clients. The event was for a young girl’s Bat Mitzvah and the event decor for her party included a zebra pattern and bright citrus colors. We incorporated the pattern and colors from the event decor into the dessert bar. I’m back today to show you some more behind the scenes shots of what goes into installing a dessert table. Unfortunately, the lighting at the venue was dark and my photography skills don’t quite do the photos justice, but you can get the idea! I’ll show some shots of the complete table tomorrow, but again, keep in mind that the lighting was really off in the pictures!

We did a mock-up of the dessert bar in my office (sans desserts) a few days before the event…

This was a test of what our popcorn bar would look like…

An assembled zebra patterned candy bar…

A custom zebra patterned goody bag…

This is a shot of the amazing desserts. At this point, we were on site.

More shots of zebra patterned desserts…

Lots of popcorn cups for the popcorn bar…

A shot from the second floor of the venue. This picture shows my staff tidying up after the dessert bars are ready.

Be back tomorrow with some more shots!
