In this series we’re learning about our colleagues. What exactly is the value that they can bring a client of yours? And how does that affect your business? Learn about other wedding pros and learn how to refer them to brides and grooms working with you.
Today, Andrea Scatuccio, Owner of The Dessert Fairy, shares what a Dessert Table Designer does and how a dessert table (or ‘sweets bar’) can add a lot of flavor to your clients’ weddings. (You’ll also want to keep an eye on Andrea’s new venture, Sweet Petite Soirees, the Hamptons’ source for stylish upscale children’s parties.)
How a dessert table can augment a wedding…
The majority of wedding tables are coordinated with the style, color and theme of the room. From formal to whimsical, every table design is custom and created using details that are important to the client.
The dessert table is a treat for the guests. It’s an opportunity for them to be wowed and surprised by all the delectable tastes available.
Misconceptions about the candy buffet table…
One of the most common misconceptions is a candy buffet table is primarily for children attending the event. It brings out the ‘child’ in everyone, and adds a touch of whimsy to even the most formal of occasions. There’s no sweeter way to end a special day and to say ‘thank you.’
Listening for the signals that a dessert table may be a fun detail for a wedding…
Many couples look for a unique favor idea, and edible favors have become very popular over the past year. They love the idea of presenting an entire table filled with sweets and treats for their guests to choose from.
In addition to wedding and event planners, I have had referrals from photographers, DJ’s, florists and venues, as well as guests who have attended an actual wedding where our tables were featured.
