Dessert receptions are becoming more and more of a trend this year. Cupcakes, cake pops, cookies, mini tarts, flavored cake and mousse shots… the list of what you can include in a dessert reception is endless. I have a huge sweet tooth so this idea is right up my alley. Desserts could easily be served with champagne, a fabulous coffee bar, and perhaps a fruit tea.

Now before your wheels get turning too fast, there are a few considerations to think about. A dessert reception really only works if you are having your ceremony and reception in the afternoon, after your guests would have already had lunch, or if your ceremony and reception begin very late into the evening, after your guests would have already had dinner. If you ceremony and reception are near a typical meal time you should consider heavy hors d’oeuvres for your guests.

Now on to that fabulous coffee bar! Beve is a local mobile coffee bar service and is an absolute hit everywhere they go. So how does a mobile coffee bar work? Beve will come and set up shop at your event so that they can provide the most exceptional service. They bring the espresso machine, scales, tea kettles, pourover bar, the whole nine yards. It really is impressive. You don’t have to have a dessert reception to have a coffee bar. Coffee bars will work with most receptions, showers, and all sorts of parties!
