Dessert Presentation

April 08, 2016
We had a little impromptu family gathering last weekend so I made two desserts.

Brownies for part of the family and homemade sugar cookies for the other half.

I wanted to dress things up a bit, so after dinner I created a little dessert presentation with 

two basic elements. 

These two basic elements will transform your dessert table from pretty to fabulous, in no 

time at all.

Tip One - A proper pedestal to display your desserts on is essential.

A tiered stand creates charm and adds elegance, it is a perfect way to serve cookies,

brownies, cakes, or cheese and assorted hors d'oeuvres.              

Tip Two- There is nothing that adds more beauty or charm to a table than a fresh bouquet 

of Flowers.

A scattering of flowers can can take an occasion from ordinary to delightful and with such 

little effort or worry.

No matter the occasion, large or small, planned or impromptu.

Add  fresh flowers and a proper pedestal to your next dessert presentation!

I sure hope that you have time to  drop by on Monday where

 Stacey from Poofing The PillowsLaura from White Spray Paint and myself are going to 

share some kitchen pretties.

Happy Friday and have a beautiful weekend,

  5. Very attractive! I will admit I'm OCD enough that I couldn't leave the bottom plate empty ( atleast from the photo it looks empty). I would have snuck a few cookies or maybe even a few flowers down there. That is certainly just me I am sure! Kind of like those kids plates with the compartments. I had to have a little something in each spot! Heehee! Happy Friday! Off to a bridal shower! ❤️

    1. Have fun at the Bridal shower!
      There were goodies on the bottom plate, unfortunately I took photos after the fact and not before:) LOL!

    I can't tell you how many times I've missed photo ops because I was too impatient (and hungry). lol

  11. Your flowers and dessert display are so pretty and charming. Fresh flowers do so much to pretty things up and lift your spirits! My hubby has been coming in with large bunches of flowers from Trader Joe's just about every two he something or what? He says he likes the way my face lights up when I have fresh flowers to arrange. Need I say....KEEPER! I also adore cake stands that make even the simplest of desserts look extra-special.

    Warm hugs, pretty lady!

  12. I couldn't agree more! A lovely dessert table for your lovely family! How nice!!!

    love, ~Sheri

    can I ask where you got this dessert pedestal? It's so pretty.

    Thanks for sharing this and have a great weekend.

  19. It's all about the presentation in food, gifts, and decorating. Those iced cookies at the grocery store are gourmet when served on a pretty platter. Great tips!
