Dessert Bars by Amy Atlas

April 7, 2009

Oh, how I love a beautiful dessert bar.  They are one of the biggest trends in weddings right now, and it’s easy to see why.  One part sweet, one part fun, a dessert bar will enhance any party.  

New York-based Event Planner Amy Atlas is the QUEEN of dessert bars.  I’m sure you’ve seen her work before.  Somehow she finds a way to hand-pick the most perfect, most coordinated, and most delicious candies and confections.


Designing a lovely dessert bar is harder than it looks.  First, pick a simple color palette, then design the bar around one or two points of inspiration.  

Look at this oh-so-chic dessert bar by Amy Atlas….



It is important to vary the heights of the elements on your table, while keeping the vessels and colors consistent.
