Wedding trends come and go and over the past few years, we’ve seen some decadent dessert ideas, from delicate macarons, extravagant cake tables and now, strawberry towers.

Referred to as the ‘queen of fruits’ the strawberry is not only packed with health benefits, but it’s as delicious as it is beautiful to look at.

Strawberry and Co9

Jamila Houchar, Founder of Strawberries and Co., turned strawberries into art after decorating chocolate-dipped strawberries as miniature bride and grooms for her nieces wedding. What started out as a hobby, soon turned into a business as Jamila got more and more creative, designing strawberries topiaries and bouquets.

What makes these towers so popular is that the bride and groom can customise their tower to suit their own unique personalities. Jamila also includes florals, Ferrero Rochers or Malteasers into her designs, for an extra indulgent addition.

Just in case you need more convincing that strawberries are a must-have at your wedding or event, we’ve put together 5 health benefits of this tasty little fruit.

1. Strawberries help burn stored fat – the red colouring in strawberries contains anthocyanin, which stimulates the burning of fat in your body.

2. They boost short-term memory – If you want your guests to remember every little detail of your big day, try plying them up with strawberries. The same chemical that helps you burn fat, anthocyanin, also boosts your short term memory.

3. They reduce risk of heart-attacks – The flavonoids found in strawberries lower your risk of cardiovascular disease.

4. They’re good for your bones – Strawberries are full of potassium, vitamin K and magnesium, all of which are essential for keeping your bones healthy.

5. They’ll keep you young – Strawberries contain biotin which build strong hair and nails. They also have ellagic acid, an antioxidant which helps prevent the skin from sagging.

Strawberries and Co. create divine dessert towers using the freshest strawberries, finest quality chocolates and flowers, macarons, truffles and nuts. Each tower is individually created to suit the style, colour palette and theme of the event, meaning you’re only ever limited by your imagination.
