I designed this mini dessert table to coordinate with my Holiday-Glam Tablescape. It’s great for an intimate dinner party, and serves up small bites so guests can sample a little bit of everything.
For the dessert area I used the acrylic beaded curtain as a backdrop – a great way to tie two areas together is to use the same elements but in a different way. The food and decor are all done in black and white and silver, and most items were found locally.
On the menu are chocolate whoopie pies, brownie bites topped with whipped icing and silver edible glitter from Sweet Baking Supply, and shimmering bonbons from Bedazzle My Bonbons. I like the idea of choosing one or two designer desserts to shine, and then dressing up purchased items or homemade items to round out the table.
To wash down the sweets, milk shots are served with cookie “straws.” You could also serve eggnog in these as well. For this table I did serve spiked eggnog and irish cream shots in chocolate cups – a fun festive addition! So that guests would know the difference between the two, I sprinked nutmeg on the eggnog shots.
In sharing this with you, I hope to show that you can have a beautiful, stylish dessert table without spending a fortune. It just takes a little thoughtful detail and creative display!
