Rustic Woodland Christmas Treats Table

Okay, you can’t have a Christmas entertaining series without some delicious homemade treats can you?! Of course not – that’s why I put together a Rustic Woodland Sweets Table to coordinate with our rustic tablescape. I filled it with some of my favorite holiday candies & desserts, and am sharing the recipes so you can make them too. But first, here are the details of the table…

  • I was thrilled to find a flannel fabric that was almost exactly like the red & black plaid stockings hanging by the fireplace. By connecting this fabric element, the moss runner, and the printed papers, the two different areas coordinate creating a complete party experience, visually. Then covering the table with “rustic” homemade sweets reinforces the concept.
  • Printable party tags from Bird’s Party are used to label items and can be seen again in the dining area as place cards.
  • A simple swag of jute twine hanging as a backdrop is a great way to display Christmas cards.
  • Candy cane sticks are a cute addition to red velvet cupcakes as they have a “Merry Chritstmas” flag attached.
  • I found some adorable sled cupcake holders at Hobby Lobby and they are a great addition to the table display.

  • The treat table is filled with some store-bought items like candied popcorn mix, chocolate dipped nuts & berries, ingredients for s’mores, and red velvet cupcakes.
  • To add a homemade touch I included some of my favorite treats: Graham Cracker Toffee, Ritz Cracker Candy, and Brownie Button Surprise bites. These recipes can all be found by following the link.
  • Eggnog Punch is served up in tall glasses and topped with whipped cream and nutmeg {follow the link for the recipe}.

This table was easy to put together and your guests would love all the goodies. You could even have containers & recipe cards handy to give guests as they leave.

Happy Holidays!
