Blue & White Christmas Dessert Table Inspiration

17 Nov

Last week it was like Christmas at The Sweet Hostess HQs. Long awaited boxes of pretty and delicate paper decorations had arrived safe and sound from the US. Yes, the usual honeycomb balls, tissue pom poms and even a few new items like honeycomb hearts and diamonds had arrived. But my absolute favourite new arrival are the snowflakes, the white ones are so pretty but it is the blue and white frosted versions that have stolen my heart. I really just want to keep them all for myself 🙂

I just knew I had to create a dessert table backdrop with them. Just even adding a few makes a huge impact! I love the traditional white snowflakes, but I absolutely LOVE the blue and white frosted snowflakes. The photos on my website don’t really do them justice, definitely need to learn some new photography skills!

A tower of mini doughnuts is one of the easiest and cheapest ways of adding some impact to your dessert table at home. To tie in with the Christmas theme add a sprinkle of icing sugar. I have blinged them up by adding some embellished cake toppers.

Some silver striped straws are perfect for Christmas and New Year celebrations. As well as gold and silver stripes, chevron and stars we also have the most adorable red snowflake paper straws which are now available from our shop.

All the cake toppers you see are from the Danish brand Miss Etoile which we have been stocking from last month. Their products are simply gorgeous. As well as those we are stocking silver and gold vintage bird cake stands. You can see the silver version above, each has a lovely bird printed on the top of the stand. So much love for this!

Happy September lovely people!

What a busy August! How was yours? If you live in the UK like myself you must be feeling pretty chuffed about the gorgeous weather we have been experiencing – Thank you England!

I have loved August and looking back on my photos their has been so much going on! Two of my friends have gotten married and you will see a vintage inspired candy buffet I did for one of them. It didn’t really go to plan as the table provided was way too small and the immense wind meant I couldn’t display all my decorations, but the busyness of it all sort of goes with the vintage theme.

Plums. My lovely plums 🙂

Bottom right is a baby shower dessert table, which incidentally will be one of my last for a while (more on this later). The heart shortbread and cupcakes featured on the dessert table. I loved the little glitter heart cake toppers.

I discovered crazy jelly beans. Loads of different flavours and shapes – Tasstttttyyy!

Gold and white shredded paper, cute and crafty. New in the shop.

Wishing you a wonderful week xx
