Adorable Holiday Dessert Tables

I have always wanted to be one of those ladies who has awesome parties…all color coordinated with a perfectly designed buffet.

I guess it wasn’t in the cards for me.

I am more of the frazzled hostess who uses paper plates and Solo cups.  I have ideas-a-plenty, but the execution is where I struggle.

My friend Glory is the party-thrower I always wanted to be.  Perfectly put together and easy breezy.  I am not easy breezy….I am a tornado…my kitchen would be a disaster, my hair would be a mess and I’d be wearing clothes covered in frosting.  Story of my life.

So, Glory put together a round-up of some of the most perfect Holiday Dessert tables you could imagine…and a few are her own designs.

Sigh, a girl can dream, right?


First up let’s talk elegant:

This is a vintage pastel holiday party designed by Glory.  It’s perfection.

Here is a beautiful one from Tracy Lau.   I love the simplicity.

Another one from Tracy Lau is this elegant, yet traditional table.  You really need to hop over to the site and check out the juice bottles.  They are completely adorable!

A more traditional table is this one from Glorious Treats.  Classic holiday colors really make an impact.  What caught my eye were the yummy looking White Chocolate Cranberry Bars…she has the recipe HERE.  I will definitely be making them!

This next one from Montresor uses a color scheme that I am obsessed with…teal and red.  It’s a pretty, modern twist on a holiday table and the candy canes pull it all together.

Now, for the most adorable kid’s tables you will ever see.  If I could just get my act together…

There are so many fun details on this table from Celebrations At Home.  The milk bottles make the table, I mean serious cuteness.

This one from I Do Invitations by Michelle might be my favorite.  The colors are just too sweet.  Ohh, to have a little girl.

In the same color scheme there’s this Penguin party from Glorious Treats.  Forget having a little girl, I want to be one again!!  Glory, could you please adopt me?

And last, but not least a Gingerbread House Party from The TomKat Studio.  Nothing is more Christmasy than decorating a gingerbread house…my kids love to do them every year, but of course I buy the prepackaged houses.  I am completely shamed by my lack of craftiness.


I hope this has given you some fun ideas!

I will now crawl into the fetal position and cry knowing that my reality is red Solo cups and Dixie plates.

    Only in my DREAMS could I pull off beautiful dessert tables like these. I, too, am more on the frazzled end of the spectrum, but I sure enjoy the eye candy!

    I see pretty tables like these , then go to the local party supply store and buy paper plates/cups in the colors and call it good. :) I’m almost always still cooking when guests show up. But you know the sign of a good friend is one who shows up early with extra cups and ready to help stuff things under the couch before anyone else shows up
