'Tis the Season...for Dessert!

I had the oppurtunity to work on something a little different a few weeks ago and I was thrilled to be able to collaborate with Ami Smith of Embellish Interiors and Jen Maton of IfsoInklined Calligraphy. The event was for the annual holiday party for the Community of Charlottesville Wedding and Event Professionals. With Ami's eye for detail and design she was able to create a beautiful backdrop and tablescape and with Jen's lovely calligraphy we were able to pull together a cohesive dessert table without sacrificing taste!

Dark Chocolate Cognac Truffles dipped in pearlized white chocolate...

Of course, a dessert table is not complete without a cake!

The hottest rage in dessert...Whoopie Pies!

Eggnog Cupcakes with Bourbon Buttercream and Pumpkin Cupcakes with White Chocolate Ginger Buttercream...complete with White Chocolate Ginger Bark.

My favorite part of the dessert spread...Shimmy Shimmy Cocoa Pops...just add hot milk (from sterling silver carafe) to hot chocolate pop and stir until melted...sprinkle on marshmallows and enjoy!

Jen's beautiful calligraphy...

One last look...

Beautiful photography courtesy of William Walker Photography and Tod Cohen Photography! Thank you both for your amazing talent and lovely works!

We would also like to thank Festive Fare Rentals for the beautiful farm table and the lovely hot chocolate mugs!
