Little bites of dessert are on trend when it comes to adding edible whimsy to your reception party.
Certainly, the cake is a highlight of the reception, but in addition, treat your guests to mini bites of pastry, gelato or candy in creative forms. It can be the perfect way to signal the end of the meal without stealing the spotlight from the cake.
