One styling question we are often asked is how to dress up a dessert display.  There are so, so many variations on how to incorporate your favorite vintage or rustic pieces into a cake or dessert display, I thought I’d show you a few of my personal favorites as well as pieces from our inventory that can help you achieve the look.

Dessert Display Styling

There’s a lot to think about when styling your dessert display, including the backdrop, linens or other table coverings, labeling, the vessels used and of course, the goodies themselves.  Some pieces to help you with your dessert display styling may be vintage serving ware such as pedestals, wood crates and suitcases to give height or layering vintage plates on candlesticks for a more customized cake (or pie) pedestal. There are also other options aside from a plain table and linen, such as a vintage sewing machine table, dresser, desk or a rustic farm table.
