Dessert tables are trending this season and the elaborately designed table goes a long way in creating the WOW!! the effect at a party.
There is a difference between having an elaborately dressed up a dessert table and just laying out a few desserts on the table. A lot of thought , not necessarily money goes in creating the dessert table. We decided to throw a party at home and after a lot of discussion we finally decided to make it a winter wonderland theme, to compliment the season. Let me take you to this entire process of how we that is me and Manali (My SIL) designed the dessert table
Theme: It’s important to have a theme in mind while designing a table it helps you bring together the decor in perspective we chose a winter wonderland theme to go with the season’s celebration. Now with the theme in place the colors that came to mind were blue, white and silver.
A focal point: we needed a focal point around which we could design the table usually tiered cakes are used to create this but we decided to go for something different I found a dried branch which I spray painted it white and used a storage bottle we had lying around to secure it in place.
Height: It’s important to create a varying level of height to create an interest in the table for this one can use inverted bowls, cake stands, boxes etc at varying heights we had some keepsake boxes which we wrapped it with a blue wrapping paper to go with the theme.
The Props and Decor: This was very easy we already had some Christmas decor at home we could use and for the rest of the decor we made a quick tour to the ever cheap and cheerful B&M and pound stores.
The Desserts: This was the easiest to make I didn’t go for anything elaborate but something which all of us in the family could contribute making .The cupcakes were made by our little in-house chef Reyansh (My Nephew), Allwyn (My Brother) made the Naked Cake, I made some of my chocolate cookies ( as a party favor which I boxed and made it look pretty with some silver boxes I ordered online. I bought panettone from Aldi which I used to secure my marshmallows dipped in chocolate.
This whole process became our family project every one of us contributing to creating this beautiful dessert table which hardly cost us 20 pounds and the guest went Ga! ga! over it for days
