Do you all read the Amy Atlas Sweet Designs blog? If not, it's very worth checking out. Amy Atlas is a dessert table creator. How cool is THAT job? And, on her blog she showcases the dessert tables she's created. Friends, they are incredible. I love checking in to see her latest dessert masterpiece. And, I've loved the concept of a dessert table since I was planning our wedding.
So, I decided I wanted to create a dessert table. And what better timing than Christmas when I can invite my friends over to eat all the desserts? Oh who am I kidding, my friends would be game anytime of year., but Christmas parties are just so fun! I snapped some photos during the day (yah! light!) before the party. So, I wanted to share a few with you.
The loose (very loose) theme was cookies for Santa. For colors, I went with red, white, silver and shades of brown. Recognize the wreath? :)
For dessert, there were cookies, and cake pops.
And cupcakes galore.
There were m & m's and gum drops.
And, milk! Because what's a cookie for Santa without a glass of cold refreshing almond milk? ;)
I had so much fun creating the table. Planning the table lended itself perfectly to my over-achieving, slightly o.c.d personality. You have to work to your strengths, right?
I'll be back later this week with the steps I followed for creating this dessert table, and the recipes I used. Because they were all awesome. I'll also let you know what was everyone's favorite treat. I was a little surprised, myself!
ps. Thanks for all of you who chimed in last week with holiday song favorites! Chris and I created an awesome Christmas play list, that I listened to all weekend long and was the perfect back drop to the party.
