Entertaining: Dessert Party

Hubby and I hosted a pink-themed – okay, I chose the theme and he kindly went along with it – dessert party this past weekend. Fun, calorie-rich times 🙂


Brownie Bites with Strawberries & Whipped Cream

Red Velvet, Chocolate, Yellow Cake, and Oreo Cheesecake Cupcakes

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Mini Cheesecakes, Tarts, and Eclairs

Strawberry Shortcake

Cookies & Cream Milkshakes

Bottled Water, Sparkling Water, Milk, Coffee, and Moscato

Cake Stand: Target/ Platters: CB2

I usually set out my buffet well in advance of the get-together. Visualizing where things are going to go helps me get organized and makes things so much easier the day of the party.

Dessert Dishes: TJMaxx (these are similar)

Beverage Tub: Target/ Cups, Saucers, Sugar Bowl, and Creamer: Crate & Barrel

KuppyCakes Red Velvet Cupcakes

Ms. Cain at KuppyCakes (Atlanta area) makes from scratch the most amazing cupcakes! We were drooling over the list of cupcake flavors and had a hard time limiting ourselves to just four different types for this party. These red velvet ones are a must-have. Y-U-M.

More KuppyCakes! I love the design and the perfect amount of icing, plus chocolate sprinkles! See, now I’m going to have to type with one hand while I eat the only leftover.

Simple, easy dessert #1: Top small brownies with whipped cream and fresh strawberry slices. I love how they look displayed on a lidded cake stand.

Simple, easy dessert #2: Blend milk, vanilla ice cream, and crumbled chocolate sandwich cookies. Top with whipped cream, and garnish with a cookie. Throw in a striped old-fashioned paper straw, and done.

Simple, easy dessert #3: Layer cubed angel food (or pound) cake, sliced strawberries, and whipped cream for a no-bake strawberry shortcake.
