Planning to host a get together this Easter?  Design an attention-getting, impressive dessert buffet.  Dessert is our favorite part of a meal and even the simplest desserts can gain star power if dynamically displayed. Adding interest to your tablescape by elevating some items, adding decorative pieces and using tiered trays is aesthetically pleasing.

Just like great landscaping or flower arranging, a visually pleasing buffet will not only display items with varying heights but also a variety of textures.

Although color is great, too many will detract from creating an artistic impression. Stick to two or three colors that complement each other. Slightly varying shades of these colors is appealing to the eye and by limiting colors, the overall color scheme comes through in your presentation.

We have taken the gold tone pieces from our LA party collection, added a few golden eggs and a couple of gold embellished bunnies to create a chic dessert buffet.

Italian gold mini forks and gold sphere picks from our collection boost the allure of these gold dipped cake pops.

The forks made them top heavy so we use these mini glass bowls from the collection to create a striking presentation.

The artfully laden sweets are bite size for the most part, permitting guests to taste more of your luscious delicacies. Rich homemade and store bought candies were placed in the golden eggs for children and adults alike to discover. We couldn’t resist adding the egg cake to the buffet.  It is so fitting with the hand brushed gold bow.

A full bar may be excessive for a family focused event so keep the libations simple. We suggest chilled Prosecco wine served in our gold sugared rimmed champagne flutes . . . delightful, light and refreshing. With the kids in mind, make them feel special by sugar coating the rim of the champagne flutes  and filling them with chocolate milk. Drinking from a unique glass is a special treat for children.

Take these ideas and make them you own. If you’re looking for an easier way to entertain using less of your precious time, check out the party collections at Your Perfect Party.  The items used on this dessert buffet are from the LA Collection.  Happy Easter!
