Wedding Wednesday: Naming Your Tables after Desserts!

Here’s a fun sequel to last week’s Wedding Wednesday post about naming your wedding reception tables after your favorite places!  This is something I saw while at the Eat Write Retreat Blog Conference.  The first night at Eat Write Retreat, there was a kickoff dinner held at the Doubletree Hotel in Philadelphia.  When I arrived, I saw that I was assigned to sit at a specific table for dinner, the “Salty Chocolate Terrine” table.

My Table: Salty Chocolate Terrine

When I walked into the ballroom, I saw that each of the different tables were named after different desserts.  And not only that, in the center of each table was a display of the dessert that the table was named after!  What a fun idea!!  To add to the fun, at dessert time you could either enjoy the dessert that was at your table or you could take your dessert and go and trade it with another table’s desserts.  It was a great way to sample different sweet treats and get up and interact with different people!

After seeing this idea (and loving it) I thought it would be a great idea to share here on Food Marriage.  You could use this idea  for a shower, wedding, or any event where you have assigned seating!

  1. I was thinking the very same thing! So original and fun! If EWR is back in Philly next year, you’d better take us with on your cheese steak forays! 😉

    Great meeting you!
