There was one thing I knew and that was that I absolutely did not want a big white cake. It was one thing I was adamant about. As our budget was small I also wanted the alternative to double as the dessert at lunch. The big cakes/pies are from Bills. Everything else made by some lovely family members as our wedding gift. Not pictured are some enormous pavlovas.
We couldn't have cared less about individual favours and instead had a pick 'n' mix table with all our favourite childhood sweets. The blue M&Ms were brought back by my Dad from New York. You can now buy them in the UK and even get personalised ones.
lovely paper bags.
The only thing I would do differently with the sweet table is buy bigger containers- possibly all the same as the IKEA vase the Flying Saucers are in. In our house, this set up looked big but in the venue which was a big open space it lost impact.
