You’ve heard the phrase “life is short, eat dessert first.” What about only eating dessert? Instead of hosting a complicated brunch or dinner party, host a dessert party instead! Here are a few different ideas for hosting a dessert party for any occasion.
Girls night in
Wine and desserts are the perfect combination for your girls night in. Try a dark chocolate and red wine theme, with different varieties of chocolate desserts and red wines. Or keep things festive with champagne and various cakes!
Most dads I know love cookies. You could host a chocolate chip cookie tasting, where everyone brings a batch and dad gets to select the winner. Don’t forget the milk! Or try a homemade ice cream cookie sandwich bar, with several combinations. Chocolate chunk cookies with peanut butter ice cream? Yes, please!
I think a mini-theme is in in order here, so serve an assortment of baby-sized desserts! Pinterest is full of mini dessert ideas; my favorites are the mini milkshakes and mini cheesecakes. These could even be brunch desserts, such as small cinnamon rolls or tiny donut holes.
Is there anything kids love more than candy? I think not. A good old fashioned candy bar is the sure way to win over your favorite birthday girl or boy. Set up glass mason or apothecary jars (use small paper cups or tablespoons for scoops) and fill with candy. Arrange by type (chocolates, sour, hard candy) or by color for a festive tablescape. Let the kids create their own candy goodie bags. Look out for the sugar rush!
