In the midst of planning the design, Kelly of The Party Dress invited me and several other bloggers to participate in her Holiday Table Challenge. Needless to say, I thought this unconventional color palette would be a fitting addition to her holiday themed table posts.
Even though my little one is a winter baby, I didn't want to rely on traditional red and green colors for her party. I designed custom cookie favors, chocolate bars, and popcorn boxes using a snowflake or peppermint stripe pattern in a red, pink, and fuschia palette. The cake's pink hue graduated from palest pink to a rosy blush shade, while snowflake 2s cascaded down the front. I created these white evergreen tree favor boxes for guests to take goodies home.
Remember the Gingerbread Place Cards from the second day of the 10 Days of Craftsmas? I used the remnant dough to make these sugar-topped gingerbread snowflakes. I designed a custom snowflake and peppermint stripe paper pattern, which I used on these favor bags.10 Days of Craftsmas, decor elements like Felt Ribbon Wreaths and Merry Mistletoe can add a finishing touch to a dessert table design. Here, I created doily snowflakes. They drifted and twirled above the table, creating a dynamic display.
