Happy Halloween from Preoccupied Bride! In honor of the sugary holiday, we have four fall themed self-serve wedding dessert bar ideas for you. And to top it off, a dessert bar can double as wedding favors for guests to take home. Include take out containers or bags with your dessert bar, and your guests will leave your wedding sweetly satisfied.
A better form of trick or treating is here for your guests. Have different sized apothecary jars or mason jars filled up with your favorite candies. Include some Halloween favorites such as candy corn, Reese’s pieces and candy pumpkins. Have serving spoons next to the jars and cellophane bags ready for guests to fill up with candy.
Caramel Apple Bar
Not only is this idea delicious, but it allows your guests to play with their food. Here’s what you need:
- Apple slices
- Sauces like caramel, melted chocolate, Nutella and marshmallow fluff
- Toppings like toffee bits, chopped almonds, mini chocolate chips, mini M&Ms and crushed graham crackers
Have bowls for the dips and toppings as well as plenty of napkins and to-go boxes because this is one sticky, hands-on dessert.
Who wouldn’t want to take home pie to eat post wedding festivities? Especially if it includes fall flavor favorites like apple, pumpkin, pecan and caramel apple pies. To make it more transportable for guests to take home, turn your slices into squares. A pie only serves eight slices, but squares can serve many more guests and is equally delicious.
This fall dessert idea is both yummy and cost efficient. Besides the three key ingredients—graham crackers, chocolate bars and marshmallows—a planter box, gel cans and a lighter is needed to create a portable flame station as well as disposable bamboo skewers to roast the marshmallows. Don’t forget there should be plenty of plates and napkins too.
