Pretty Party Treats

At almost every little girl's birthday party, lady's event, or tea party you can be sure to find pretty cupcakes with fluffy frosting, glittering cake pops, and beautifully iced cookies. But what about all the other fabulously dainty and beautiful treats that are so often over looked such as these adorable mini donuts
which you can ice to match the colors of your event. They can be made in a mini doughnut maker or in a deep fryer. The recipe is easy and they look so sweet and pretty when you lay them out.

Fruit is a real crowd pleaser, especially for health conscious individuals, so why not spice things up by making these cuties

so easy, so fun to eat, and so appealing to the eye! You are basically using cookie cutters to make the shapes out of the fruits and then skewering them with lolly pop sticks.

Cotton candy is fun to eat and is such a festive treat! Here is an original way to display it and at the same time add more color, texture, and spunk to your desserts table.

Don't forget about ice cream! No party is complete without that cold sticky goodness. How pretty are these little guys???
You can use store bought ice cream and add food coloring to make different colors, follow this recipe for best results. Make sure to keep them in the freezer until you are ready to serve them so they don't end up making a huge mess. Have fun with rolling them in the sprinkles of your choosing!

Chocolate dipped anything is beautiful AND delicious! The possibilities really are endless as far as what you can dip and how to display it. My personal favorite is dipped pretzel rods

and of course any fruit you can think of can most definitely be dipped (unless you are thinking about dipping tomatoes, I've never tried it so I can't really say...).

Add a personal touch to each cup! Great for birthdays, bar mitzvahs, anniversary parties, weddings.

Table Setting Inspirations

When I walk into someone's home for Shabbos dinner or into a hall for a sit down dinner event, I notice every detail about the way the table is set and all the little additional touches. I sometimes walk into stores selling tableware and just stand looking at the different styles, colors, and textures and putting table settings together in my head. I favor the vintage style with a lot of mixed matched dishes and a lot of color and different texture. Sometimes however, simple tableware is more effective and leaves room for more exciting and expressive accents such as centerpieces and table linens.

Mismatched China + Vintage Inspiration = Lovely

Rich Decor + Fine China = Elegance

Bright Color + Sharp lines + Simple = Creative modern design

Simple dishes + Colorful detail = Fabulous

Creative Buffet Displays

The most exciting part of party planning for me is the set up and layout design of the party specifics. I think going a little "creative crazy" can make a simple brunch or backyard BBQ a unique and memorable event. The buffet can be just a boring table with food set out very organized and simple, OR it can be an original piece of artwork with serving dishes of different shapes, colors, sizes, and heights. Take your guests on an adventure as they come up to make their plates, making it more of a fun activity then a simple act.
