Q We want to create a sweet table for our guests to enjoy, but we're not sure where to start. What advice can you share with us?
A Kathryn Hague says: Sweet tables are lovely additions to receptions and doesn't always have to cost the earth. With such a huge range of sweets available, you can find something your younger guests will love as well as the adults.

The treats must be accessible to your guests, but you also don't want the table to be in the way – the best location is preferably against a wall. Depending on your chosen venue, it could also be a good idea to have it in the entrance way or canopy area.

One of the best ways to make the station look gorgeous is using a great colour palette. You can then incorporate sweets and decorations that match to create a clean, fun and put-together look – pink and white shades are popular choices.

Try to have a variety of treats for guests to enjoy. Incorporate chocolates and marshmallows as well as confectionery options.

To make the display look amazing, you'll want to cover the table with a cloth that ties in with your colour palette. This doesn't have to be anything fancy; it just helps tie everything together.

Make your sweets table look fun and busy by adding different dimensions – this is what will make your table look luxurious. You can do this by having different sized mason jars and cake stands.

If you want to jazz up the table more, you could add flowers and a fun backdrop.
