Fabulous Quotes for your Wedding Dessert Buffet!

Words make the wedding, and when you feature fabulous quotes in your ultra-personalized wedding, the entire celebration is more you. So add an extra element of Wow Factor to your wedding, engagement party or bridal shower’s dessert buffet by incorporating sweets-themed quotes into your dessert table design. You might DIY a large sign to hang behind the dessert or candy buffet, display little framed signs on the dessert buffet, or invite guests to pick out their own sweets-inspired quotes from a bowl filled with your adorably printed out quote cards.

Here are some delicious little sweets- and candy-themed quotes I found out www.brainyquotes.com, one of my favorite sources for both classic and contemporary quotes on any subject you’d like.

I LOVE Ten23 Designs, designer and creator of some of the most gorgeous monogram decals I’ve ever seen. The intricate details are breathtaking, and their prices are really, really affordable.
When I spotted this unique use of a monogram decal placed on a mirror, I immediately thought, “That would be so amazing for an engagement party or at-home bridal shower!” It’s an easy-apply special detail that will impress guests and add a spectacular level of design to your party.
You’ll see that the party planner used it on the mirror above the dessert buffet, which I think is just brilliant!

This event was planned by Luxe Event Design, LLC (www.theluxeplanner.com ,) and owner Talia very graciously granted permission to show this fabulous party detail here on my blog. So reach out to both of these amazing wedding pros to see what they can do for you, and here’s the link to Ten23 Designs’ gorgeous circular monogram measuring 22” tall and wide: http://ten23designs.com/item_51/Elegant-Circle-Personalized-Wedding-Monogram.htm
