Set a Winter Table for Dessert

Gather friends for an intimate, mid-winter’s night dessert party. This is one of the easiest parties to host by keeping it small and limiting the menu.

Create the atmosphere with an imaginative tablescape. Use candles and wintry colors. Here my table is dressed with silver, gold with winter white. Barren branches dress the table with bird napkin holders and dessert plates. Dress your table to parallel your climate. If you live in warmer climates, use some greens in season from your yard. For example, in south Florida the Calamondin oranges are in bloom. Pick some branches with the small colorful fruit for your table.
