Guest Dessert Table Feature from South Africa

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions

This guest dessert table comes all the way from Durban, South Africa. Zalita of Cupcake D’Lights sent us pictures of a recent dessert table for a young girl’s princess birthday party. Zalita makes cupcakes but was inspired by us to try out a dessert table. The wrapped lollipops are SUPER cute. Dressing up lollipops with tissue paper is an inexpensive and easy way to instantly dress up pops. The Zoe banner is also really sweet. Okay, some tips from the dessert table designer – next time dress up some of those jars with decorative ribbbon. You could use solids or a patterned, but I always think a princess table could use some bows! I also would have used more delicate {less bulky} vessels for the marshmallows since the overall princess feel is fanciful. Overall, great job Zalita!

    thanks for all the comments,and Amy and her team for blogging our tables.

    i love the suggestions and would def add more ribbons to the jars. the only problem i have esp here in South Africa is finding gorgeous stuff that you guys in America and elsewhere have. On this particular table the mom insisted i must fill the mallows and other sweeties into plastic containers and finding attractive ones was a huge problem. i know il still use these in the future unless i find cuter plastic items for kiddie candy tables. the original table had feathers and little baubles all over which added a princessey touch.


  • Thank you Amy, for sharing your experiences with all of us, and showing the all around the wold people’s tables… it’s a really helpful way, and at the same time good for you to show the rest your love for this job!
    I come from Spain, and although here people is not so “in” those kind of celebrations (we don’t use to celebrate baby showers or bridal shower, etc…), I am openning an “unnusual” pastry shop, wich will offer also this kind of “sweet tables” service…
    Your tables and displays are just wonderful, and I would like to know where do you find all the cut outs, and written papers? Do you do them yourself, or do you have any web to print all the little “notes”? Also, I’ve notice that Zalita, in the Zoes party table, wrapped the lolipop in tissue paper…but would any type of paper go fine? She also used a regular paper to do the chocolate bars boxes? or it must be a speciall paper that can be use with food? (I mean…some inks could go into the sweets?). Are these kinds of materiales difficult to find?
    Do you recommend handcrafting your own decorations, or do you rather go for buying some of them? (I mean in time consuming versus price)?

    Well…I know those are lots of questions, and obviusly the most of them can only be answered by years of experience…but maybe (as you are already doing) you could share some more tips with us). Thank you in advance, and hope you get more and more submits! 🙂

    Good Luck from Spain!

  • So pretty! The details and the whole set up is adorable:-)
