Keep in mind that you can mix and match any of these and your sweet table will always be able to satisfy a sweet tooth. Read carefully as this will help you pick your poison...
CHOCOLATE SWEET TABLE
This is pretty self explanatory. A sweet table with chocolate as the shining star; this itself is pretty versatile. Keep it classy with chocolate drizzled and dipped fruit. Make it fun and interactive with a chocolate fountain where everyone can dip and coat what their heart desires. Nobody said there was anything wrong with going sweet and salty either. Think chocolate dipped pretzles or dark chocolate sea salt carmels (UHHH YUM!).
A dessert buffet would typically have an assortment of desserts, preferably mini, for your guests to pick and choose from. Imagine little cheese cakes, yogurt and fruit parfaits, truffles, brownies, mousse and tiramisu. If it's sweet and can be served in cutesy portions - you can put it in the dessert buffet.
COOKIES AND CUPCAKES
Serve 'em up with generous amounts of milk. Have them decorated with the birthday girl or boy's name, the bride and groom's names, smileys, flowers, or just plain frosted. You'll be lucky if you're with any left overs. Cookies and cupcakes are timeless and generally very clean eateries. I find this sweet table to tend to little hands and mouths easier if you have younger guests.
Of course, there is more to the sweet table than the sweets. Is it going to be themed? Gluten free? You can even feature candy and ice cream. There are seriously endless variations. Mix and match or keep it simple, your dessert buffet will be delicious either way!
