Something Sweet for Monday

It’s not just about the cake anymore.  It is, but there’s another component to the dessert celebration at a wedding.  As your coffee is being poured and you take that last bite of cake, somewhere along a wall or tucked in another entry hallway, is a hidden treasure… The Dessert Table.

It’s not just a table that has a white linen thrown on top with a plate of cookies and hello dolly’s.  No no.  These are now decorative tablsescapes that catch the eye of anyone who passes and typically entice a person to grab a treat even if they are full to their maximum belly capacity.
