Deck out your Holiday Dessert Table
It’s already that time of year! Christmas Season! Ok, maybe for our friends in the US it happens on Friday, but we here in Canada are already in the spirit. Last year I showed you some pretty awesome dessert table set ups in different colours and textures. You can find them here and here. This year, I’d like to share with you some creative ways to deck out your holiday dessert table.
This was a table I did a few years ago for the Magazine Vision Jeunesse located in Quebec. We went with the typical Christmas colours: red, green, brown and ivory. (Spoiler alert: I created 2 other tables this year with the same colour theme but completely different, yet repurposing some of the decorations. Will be up on the blog in a couple of weeks!)
To be creative means using what you have on hand sometimes. So I took out my Christmas decor a little early (as this is taking place a few months before Christmas is even on the radar) and went to work.
Its simple really! Some ornaments, gift boxes, any flashy decoration you have on hand like nutcrackers, gift boxes and glitter trees. I LOVE GLITTER TREES! Although you get glitter pretty much everywhere, it still so pretty on the dessert table.
I used some fake snow and added that to the bottom of some apothecary jars I had and haphazardly placed some ornaments in it. Also, I had some plastic juice/ milk bottles. I made them into little snowmen with a mini donut as a top hat. SOOOO CUTE!
Now comes Desserts!
For the desserts, I went pretty simple. Cupcakes, cake pops, sugar cookies decorated with Santa boots and verrines. Verrrines are single serve dessert cups. I’ve done mousses, trifles, fruit and English cream, tiramisu (my absolute favourite) and so many more. I would recommend getting a pasty shop to create your cake. You don’t want to have too much on your plate, setting up for the holidays.
Until the next table, stay sweet!
