It’s a big week, folks! With Thanksgiving just three days away, it’s time to focus on the little details that can take your gathering to a different level. Joanna of blog Baked by Joanna teamed up with a few other bloggers to create this delectable dessert table with her favorite World Market goods. She shared her tips for creating a dessert table that guests will love, and one that will make hosting your gathering a little bit easier.
Tip 1: Reach for quick-prep edible treats. Maple pizelle cookies, Mexican wedding cookies and ginger snaps go well with after-dinner coffee and tea.
Tip 2: Create flow. When it comes to the dessert table, keep the eyes moving from one dessert to another.
Tip 3: Let the season guide your dessert choices. Focus on traditional Thanksgiving and autumnal flavors, like pumpkin, cranberry and maple.
Tip 4: Avoid clutter. Displaying desserts on tall and low serving pieces creates balance.
Tip 5: Tell your guests what they’re about to eat. Writing out a simple menu on a chalkboard display or labeling each dish lets your guests know what they’re in for at the table.
