We love to 'tablescape' and it can be an inexpensive way to impress your guests. We put together two different ways of presenting your table and sweet treats with Christmas decorations and props we already had and intentionally limited buying anything new.

We used flowers from the garden to add a fresh element to the table (and they are free!) and popped our baked goodies on plates and in dishes of varying height (TIP - using different heights adds a feeling of abundance to the table) We added a Christmas cookbook for height too, and scattered various decorations for added texture.

TIP - if you keep the colour scheme to two or three similar colours it helps keep everything looking 'pulled together'

Another way of presenting your desserts to your guests is on a bookshelf. As strange as it sounds, it's a lovely way to show off all your time in the kitchen baking away.
Here we decorated the bookshelf using some pom pom string (available at any craft store) and used the same decorations scattered, and the same dishes and stands.

Presenting a dessert table doesn't have to cost a fortune, just remember to use different height dishes and platters, add some fresh flowers, keep colours to two or three, and think outside the box about where (and on what) in your home to present your display.

Merry Christmas!
