Mini Holiday Dessert Table

Entertaining & Parties, Holidays & Gifts

This past week I hosted a Stella & Dot Jewelry Party for my friend Alexis. Not content to just leave it at that,  I was inspired to create a small (but cute) dessert table for the party. My dining room walls are green (Benjamin Moore’s “Sweet Caroline”) so I though they’d be the perfect backdrop for red tissue paper pom-poms. While I think the table turned out adorable, I am so mad at myself for not ironing the tablecloth ahead of time! Hopefully this is a good learning for anyone out there doing a dessert table (and myself!). Regardless of my lack-of-ironing, I wanted to share the pictures, taken by my friend, the lovely Elisa Cicinelli, who is based here in San Francisco. She is a fantastic wedding photographer — take a look at her website, here.
I like to “anchor” dessert tables with something as a backdrop (the tissue poms here) and then added a Hip Hooray banner.

I love these mini cupcake pom-pom toppers from Potter & Butler. In the background, pretzels dipped in white chocolate and candy canes!

Marshmallows dipped in candy cane. YUM!

Holiday bumblegum and crazy addictive chocolate covered Oreos topped with candy cane dust.
