What better prelude to our April in Paris Soiree later this month than a delectable French-inspired sweets table! Sisters Lizbeth O’Brien and Debra Lynn Forgue, dessert designers and curators behind Fancy Candies & Sweet Buffets, have some advice for incorporating the Parisian theme into a focal point that will spark conversation and appetites alike on your big day.
Of course, no French table could be so-named without macarons. The tiny layered meringue-based cookie is a French staple and can be found in so many flavors, as well as colors to suit your wedding palette. Petit fours, the petite icing-covered cakes, are the perfect one-bite treat and can also be customized to you and your groom, such as your new monogram piped onto the top. French pastries such as flaky croissants and cream-filed eclairs offer a slightly-less-sweet contrast and add visual appeal. Rich chocolate truffles in a variety of flavors and fillings look incredible on a tiered stand.
Speaking of stands, the vessels used to display your treats and additional table decor will elevate the Parisian theme to a grand level. Fancy Candies has used classic Chanel accessories, French poodles, perfume bottles, topiaries, antique cameras on recent tables—and we can’t wait to see what they’re designing for our big event! Be sure to join us on Tuesday, April 24th at 6 PM to admire and sample from their table, and to celebrate all things French. Ooh, la la!
