We are also so happy to be sharing our Peppermint and Spice Christmas Party!  What a Joy it was to shoot!

The aroma of peppermints and spices is what makes the holidays magical.  Memories of our mother grating nutmeg on the eggnog and the smell of compotes filled with candy canes and spice drops is what inspired us to create our Peppermint and Spice Dessert Table.

Styling and Decor

We chose the traditional red and green with pops of gold as our color palette.  The green poinsettia wreath is the focal point of the table.  We made lollipop flowers using our Petite Blossom Cups to adorn the Christmas wreath.  Two golden branch trees were placed on each side of the table.  They were embellished with crystal clear ornament balls filled with red Petite Blossom cups poinsettias with a butter cookie in the center.  These were the perfect party favor for our guests.  We decorated a variety of trees with peppermints, candy canes and spice drops to add height and texture to the table.  A festive backdrop of paper fans framed our sweet display.

The Desserts

We crafted a zig zag cupcake tower inspired by Amy Atlas’ latest book (Sweet Designs:  Bake It, Craft It and Style It) where we showcased red velvet cupcakes lined with striped cupcake wrappers.  A traditional fruit cake was wrapped with old fashioned candy sticks and topped with shaved coconut.  Red mini teacups were filled with meringue cupcakes and Petite Glasses with eggnog pudding.  We also served donuts sprinkled with crushed peppermint and white chocolate cake balls in gold Petite Cups.

The Fashion

The children wore a Swedish style red sweater and dress from Hanna Andersson.
