Christmas Dessert Table Tips:
With Willie Soto & Liliana Cuellar
Set the mood
Put on a good Christmas playlist and let the creative inspiration flow!
Color scheme Find Christmas colored cake stands, plate or tableware in your favorite holiday colors. Most of us have white cake stands - so why not add a hint of green, red, silver or gold.
Props If you can't find the perfect cake stand or plates - play with other props - such as: gift boxes, a small Christmas tree, cute plush animals or house decorations. This is the time to take advantage of all those beautiful cute decorations you have collected over the years. These little props and a well maintained color scheme will make your table look festive and organized. Also be sure to add a touch of class to your petite fours with small Christmas themed fondant accents.
Set up Choose a cozy location to make your guests feel right at home. If available try to set up near the fireplace or Christmas tree. Start to assemble the table attest two hours ahead of time. This way you will not be pressured by guests and your will have plenty of time to decorate, place your desserts and take amazing shots of your work without being rushed!
Center of Attention Include a main theme cake in the center of the table. It makes the dessert table look more appealing and visually impressive.
Follow these tips and you will be well on your way to setting up the perfect holiday table!
