5 Must-Haves for Dessert Table Design

If you follow this blog and/or a variety of other wedding end event-related blogs, chances are you’re into dessert tables as much as I am. And based upon the fact that the [Creating the Perfect [Candy/Dessert/Ice Cream/etc. Bar](http://theplungeproject.com/creating-the-perfect-dessert-bar) guest post featured here last year is still one of the more popular posts on the Plunge Project, I know quite a few of you are interested in creating beautiful dessert tables yourself. But of course, there’s a lot that goes into creating the perfect dessert table and a lot of supplies are necessary to make it beautiful. It’s not just about the candy and desserts themselves. That’s why I’m sharing a few of my must-have items for designing dessert tables…

**1. Apothecary Jars** –
I love, love, love displaying candy in apothecary jars — on dessert tables like the one I designed for my future sister-in-law’s [baby shower](http://theplungeproject.com/blue-yellow-badtz-maruhello-kitty-baby-shower) and in my home — so I really love this set of Terra Apothecary Jars. If you’re interested in purchasing any of these, find all 3 on Amazon (in order as shown above): [19.25″ footed apothecary jar](http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001HI5R3E/ref=as_li_tf_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=theplupro-20&linkCode=as2&camp=217145&creative=399369&creativeASIN=B001HI5R3E)![](http://www.assoc-amazon.com/e/ir?t=theplupro-20&l=as2&o=1&a=B001HI5R3E&camp=217145&creative=399369), [16.5″ footed apothecary jar](http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001HI7VRO/ref=as_li_tf_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=theplupro-20&linkCode=as2&camp=217145&creative=399373&creativeASIN=B001HI7VRO)![](http://www.assoc-amazon.com/e/ir?t=theplupro-20&l=as2&o=1&a=B001HI7VRO&camp=217145&creative=399373) and [Terra Collection footed glass apothecary jar](http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001HI1W4W/ref=as_li_tf_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=theplupro-20&linkCode=as2&camp=217145&creative=399369&creativeASIN=B001HI1W4W)![](http://www.assoc-amazon.com/e/ir?t=theplupro-20&l=as2&o=1&a=B001HI1W4W&camp=217145&creative=399369).

**2. [Martha Stewart Crafts Large Circle Cutter](http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0044JOO3M/ref=as_li_tf_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=theplupro-20&linkCode=as2&camp=217145&creative=399373&creativeASIN=B0044JOO3M)**![](http://www.assoc-amazon.com/e/ir?t=theplupro-20&l=as2&o=1&a=B0044JOO3M&camp=217145&creative=399373) – In the past, I had some definite trouble cutting perfect circles, so I recently picked up one of these. It cuts perfect circles from 4 inches to 12 inches in diameter at .18-inch increments, which is very handy for circular labels, table banners, cake toppers and more!

**3. Dessert Pedestal Jars** – Sometimes apothecary jars just don’t do the job, which is why I’m loving this set of 3 [Grasslands Road Just Desserts Cupcake Pedestal Candy Jars](http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004RSL5BO/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=theplupro-20&linkCode=as2&camp=217145&creative=399373&creativeASIN=B004RSL5BO)![](http://www.assoc-amazon.com/e/ir?t=theplupro-20&l=as2&o=1&a=B004RSL5BO&camp=217145&creative=399373) found on Amazon! Cute, right?

**4. [2″ Circular Scallop Punch by EK Tools](http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003DKS088/ref=as_li_tf_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=theplupro-20&linkCode=as2&camp=217145&creative=399373&creativeASIN=B003DKS088)![](http://www.assoc-amazon.com/e/ir?t=theplupro-20&l=as2&o=1&a=B003DKS088&camp=217145&creative=399373) **- I’m pretty sure I could not live without this punch. If you’re printing labels for each dessert table item, creating cupcake toppers, favor tags, napkin rings, etc., you definitely need this punch! [EK Success](http://www.amazon.com/gp/search?ie=UTF8&keywords=ek%20success&tag=theplupro-20&index=arts-crafts&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325) makes a lot of other great punches as well.

So pretty! _What are your dessert table must-haves?_
