My sweet table will be made up of cupcakes, a variety of Swedish deserts, chocolate seashells, starfish and sand dollars and a simple wedding cake with chocolate seashells added for decoration. I love the lace doilies for the cupcakes, they remind me of the invitations. We like simple and hand made thing's.
