The holidays are upon us and that means holiday parties are happening right this moment. I created this dessert tablescape with the colors and textures of a traditional Christmas palette—and palate—in mind: deep reds, forest greens and woodland touches, and of course, peppermint, chocolate and mulled wine flavors.
A bowl of Mulled Wine adds grownup flair to the otherwise family-friendly dessert table.
