It’s the Holidays…. that means parties, drinks, great food and the ultimate Christmas Dessert Table. This classic dessert table, I created using textures and keeping it monochromatic. Let me share some of my tips and ideas for a head turner Christmas Dessert Table Set-up.
Over the years, I’ve collected a beautiful selection of entertaining pieces. The latest edition to my collection is this large blingy tray. It compliments the smaller tray I already had. That’s the secret. Buy timeless pieces that will last you for years.
Balance is the main thing to go for while setting up your dessert table. You want the eyes to move around the table. Height is essential when creating your dessert table. Like most of my buffets I like to create different height and sizes in specific items to become the focus. Odd amounts of platters and apothecary jars are place strategically because its visually pleasing.
Achieving the best dessert table is simple. Don’t lay your dishes flat and spread them all over the table, I get it! You want to fill up the blank space. Instead bring your platters and dishes closer. Doing so will make it look like you did it purposely. Fill in the wasted space with decor or flowers. Use cake stands or pedestals like I did. This pedestal is from my hurricane vases. Removing the glass makes for the perfect pedestal for placing your focal point dish.
Although it looks fancy, I will be keeping my food selection realistic. Making sure there will be enough sweets to satisfy my guest, and enough for them to take some home. Be sure to check back with me so you can see all of the assortments of desserts to satisfy every ones palates.
