YES if you are planning a dessert table, believe it or not, you need to know about symmetry. You need to understand if you like everything to be perfectly symmetric or not, and if the answer is yes how deep in the rabbit hole are you paranoid with symmetry.
For example, throughout the years, I had clients that every single item and tray had to be identical the same on each side of the table, some not as crazy but pretty close to an identical visual impact.
If you are the type of person that prefers everything symmetric is not a big deal, however, you need to communicate that. Because is a very important factor, it’s an inevitable detail that can not and be not be forgotten if you want to be happy with the final result.
Imagine if you don’t mention to your decorator that you like symmetry, now you get into the party, after spending X amount of money creating this beautiful dessert table and you get there and can’t get past the fact that the table is not symmetric? Not a happy feeling, right?
So make sure you tell your decorator or as an event planner, make sure to ask your client. I did a live a few weeks ago on my Instagram and I have a few different tables as examples, so take a look at it, and if you have questions just leave a message.
