Set up a rustic Christmas dessert table for holiday entertaining. Add woodsy decor and plaid fabric to carry out the theme. Provide a mix of homemade sweets and store bought treats for an easy party plan.
Rustic Christmas Dessert Table
Okay, you can’t have a rustic Christmas entertaining series without some delicious homemade treats can you?! Of course not – that’s why I put together a rustic Christmas dessert table to coordinate with our rustic Christmas tablescape. I filled it with some of my favorite sweets & desserts, and am sharing the recipes so you can make them too. But first, here are the details of the table.
Ideas to set up a rustic Christmas treats 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 Christmas” flag attached.
I found some adorable sled cupcake holders at Hobby Lobby and they are a great addition to the table display.
What Sweets to Serve
- Fill the treats table with some store-bought items like candied popcorn mix, chocolate dipped nuts & berries, ingredients for s’mores, and red velvet cupcakes.
- I included some of my my favorite homemade sweet treats & desserts – Graham Cracker Toffee, Ritz Cracker Candy, and Brownie Button Surprise bites. These recipes can all be found by following the link.
- Serve the easiest eggnog punch recipe in tall glasses and top them with whipped cream and nutmeg. Just follow the link for the recipe.
PARTY TIP: You can have containers & recipe cards handy to give guests as they leave.
This table was easy to put together and your guests would love all the goodies.
