Winter Dessert Table







Last weekend I decorated for a "ugly" Christmas sweater party. I was in charge of the decor, desserts,  party favors, and then last minute I had extra decor so we whipped up a mini hot cocoa bar.  I hope my client liked it as much as I did. I found this a little challenging for me because my client was super easy and let me pick what I wanted to do but with Christmas decor there are so many options you could go: classic colors, vintage, bright colors, woodsy/rustic. Luckily after I debated what to do for a while, I made up my mind and went with a classic winter wonderland theme. 

 Enjoy...







Party Favors

Hot Cocoa Bar

Hot cocoa stir sticks for the cocoa bar (not shown in picture above)
I used white chocolate to attach the sprinkles to the marshmallow as well as the candy cane stick.

One of the host's of the party. I had to share because I loved his sweater (I promised I wouldn't disclose his face)

    1. It was just white chocolate. Once the chocolate hardens it is like glue!

    1. I bought them at a cracker barrel. Not sure if you have that where you are but here is a link on Amazon for cheap

      I have also seen them at specialty candy stores. you could always use candy canes and just break off the curved part and stick that end into the marshmallow and no one would know :)

  8. I like the stirrers with the marshmallow, but not with peppermint sticks. Wonder what else could be used?

  9. This is a beautiful table and made me want to indulge in some sugary treats. The colours and sparkle also left me feeling a little chilly, the power of fantastic design & photography.
