Tempting Sweet Trees for Your Reception

Got a bit of a sweet tooth? Why not serve a scrumptious sweet tree at your wedding reception!

For a reception decoration that is both pretty to look at and amazing to eat, a sweet tree makes a wonderful wedding centrepiece idea! Sweet trees can be decorated with all your favourite things and are guaranteed to go down a treat with your guests.

From love hearts to Ferrero Rocher, we challenge you not to feel hungry when you see our pick of the best sweet trees!

What is a Sweet Tree?

We spoke to Rachel Wolsey from Cuckooland to find out more about why these delicious delights are perfect for weddings (as if you need any convincing to involve chocolate!). ‘A sweet tree is to be shared, nibbled, devoured and admired,’ says Rachel. ‘It’s designed to look like a tree, but instead of leaves it’s covered in your favourite chocolate or sweets!’

If you have a dessert buffet at your reception then sweet trees are a perfect addition. They also make fantastic table centrepieces and are a great ice breaker for guests who won’t be able to resist getting stuck in!

Usually ranging from 20cm to 60cm in height, a sweet tree can be customised to suit your reception décor so that it becomes a fantastic decorative feature as well as an edible treat.

Bride and Groom Sweet Tree

All of Cuckooland’s sweet trees are provided by Sweet Tree by Browns, who create bespoke designs for couples. We love their bride and groom sweet trees which would make the ultimate reception centrepieces!  They are made from Belgian chocolate, marshmallows and Ferrero Rocher then personalised with icing – how could you resist these beauties?

Dessert Table Centrepieces

Sweet trees could make a brilliant alternative to a wedding cake if you’re on a tight budget, or could be a great accompaniment to the dessert table to complement the cake if it’s the main feature.

We love these marshmallow and chocolate trees from Cuckooland, which are surrounded by bags of sweets that you could give to your guests as wedding favours! Like this idea? We have a further 101 amazing wedding favours here on Hitched!
