How to Arrange a Wedding Cake Cupcake Table

Many wedding receptions feature both a cake and cupcakes. To make the table more appealing, arrange boxes in a stair-step fashion on the table and cover them with cloth to create a display of cupcakes.

Things You'll Need

  • Empty boxes in various sizes
  • 4 yards of fabric in wedding coordinating colors
  • Platters

Instructions

    • 1

      Put a piece of fabric down over the table.

    • 2

      Arrange boxes on the table according to height, stair-stepping down as they move away from the main cake.

    • 3

      Cover the boxes with the second fabric selection. This will create a multi-leveled platform with surfaces at varied heights. Step back and look at it from a distance to see if you want to make changes to the layout before you place the cupcakes around.

      Place the cupcakes on platters on the steps you created.

Tips & Warnings

  • Place single cupcakes around the table to add a splash of color.
  • If you have light colored cupcakes, choose a darker fabric for contrast.
  • Don’t use a sheer fabric to cover boxes because the labels may show through.
