How To Prepare An Instagram-Worthy Dessert Table

Everyone loves dessert. It’s one of those extra pleasures that you get to enjoy after eating. Nowadays, eating dessert isn’t enough. You also have to make sure that it’s Instagram-worthy. Most people nowadays love to immortalize the simpler things that they do throughout the day and the dessert that they’re about to down is one of those.

By hiring a team to help with dessert catering, you can easily prepare an Instagram-worthy dessert table. However, it’s still up to you to help the team help you. What do you want on your dessert table? Will there be a theme? Let’s take a look at the essentials in preparing a jaw-dropping Instagram-worthy table of desserts.

Find an Inspiration

When you think of dessert, what’s the first thing that comes to your mind? Finding inspiration is not going to be easy especially if it’s the first time that you have to prepare a dessert table. You can make it easier for you by searching on the very same social network that you are trying to feature your desserts on — Instagram.

Look for the desserts you have in mind on Instagram. How are they prepared? Do they follow a trend or are they trying something unique? Take all of the best characteristics, or at least the ones that you resonate with, and note all of those for your dessert table.

By finding inspiration, you are essentially lessening the burden on you and the team that you’ve hired with dessert catering. Planning will now become an easier task because you already have some things in mind such as color, assembly, and even utensils.

All Out or Conservative?

Your selection will definitely affect how your dessert table looks. Are you thinking of going all out with the variety of desserts? There’s also a different approach to going conservative. By going with the latter, you don’t necessarily have to reduce the serving. You just have to choose less for some aspects.

Certain aspects as the color, size, and even the dessert itself can be modified to fit the template of your dessert table. If you’re going to serve a lot of brightly-colored desserts, a random dark one may seem incredibly out of place. You may have to make adjustments which means sacrificing the loss of a dessert from your dessert table.


Decorating your dessert table goes beyond what you have on top of the table. You have to think about what’s going to surround it. While you envision the desserts being on top of your table, you also have to think about how the entire setup is going to be presented. Are you going to place brightly colored balloons on either side?

There are many things that you can do with the decorations. Depending on the event where you’re going to serve the dessert, you may even choose a unique table. One thing’s for sure, you are only limited by your imagination so you should find what suits the theme and work on that.
