Bridal Shower Dessert Table

I surprised my sister with a dessert table for her Bridal Shower: a fondant flower cake, Oreo truffles, and Bridal themed Sugar Cookies with Royal Icing. All desserts fit her wedding colors of coral and ivory!

Bridal Shower Dessert Table

I’ve mentioned this in several posts, but I threw my sister Lisa a bridal shower in March and tackled my first dessert table! When my sister got engaged last summer, I immediately started brainstorming ideas for her shower. I had never hosted a shower before, and I wanted it to be so special for her. I had such an amazing bridal shower, thanks to my sister, my aunts, and my cousins, and I wanted Lisa to feel the same way.  

Developing a Theme for the Bridal Shower Dessert Table

I’ve been inspired to do a sweet/dessert table ever since first hearing about them from my friend Kat (and seeing her amazing work!). Lisa absolutely loves desserts, and I thought this was the perfect idea for her shower. Her wedding colors were coral and ivory, so I decided to make that the theme of the shower and dessert table. I wanted the overall colors to be as light and “bridal” as possible. After many months of planning, shopping, and sketches, here is what I came up with:

And one of the biggest feats: the cake!

The menu (disregard my reflection in the glass!):

The table went over very well with the guests too. I think it was fun for them to get to sample a variety of desserts but still partake in the main dessert, the cake. I will be sharing the recipes for the desserts over the course of several posts. Here is the complete run-down of the desserts so you know what to expect:

Mini Cupcakes with Vanilla Buttercream
Meringue Cookies
Oreo Truffles
Strawberry Cake Truffles
(the truffles were stored in the freezer, hence the condensation)
Decorated Sugar Cookies: wedding dresses, wedding cakes, and diamond rings

(they were also the favor)
I also used Sour Patch Cherries
and White Fudge-Covered Pretzels

I hope you come back soon to check out the fun posts I have coming up, including the recipes for these desserts, a Salsa Showdown, and the Groom’s Cake I made for my sister and her new husband’s rehearsal dinner! 🙂
