Here is another great idea for a buffet server that you can easily make yourself. This is a tiered buffet server centerpiece on a Holiday Dessert Table at a party I recently attended. This was made this with mirrors and hurricanes filled with ornaments! The candles added so much sparkle! I LOVE this idea! I have seen similar items in catalogs for over $300.00 and this is so simple to make.
Start with a piece of mirror for the base. You can buy these in all shapes and sizes at craft stores. I like to have several pieces of mirrored glass on my table or buffet to reflect the light and add interest. As you can see in this photo, the candles are reflected beautifully in the mirrored base. Next, add hurricane four globes and fill the hurricanes with holiday ornaments. Top the hurricanes with another piece of mirrored glass. Set a cake stand on top of this piece of mirrored glass and add desserts to the cake stand and also on the mirror. Add a smaller cake stand to the top and finish off with a holiday decoration such as this small tinsel Christmas tree.
Individual desserts are displayed perfectly on this buffet server. It is easy for your guests to select the desserts they want. Just be sure to replenish the buffet server during the party and have plenty of desserts made ahead of time so everyone gets what they want. Allow at least two to three individual desserts per person at a party. Some people will only take one but you will find that others may take five or six!
What are some good ideas for individual desserts? Brownies, individual puddings, and chocolates are just a few suggestions. You can also buy small individual glass serving pieces to make your dessert buffet really impressive. Be sure to include small serving spoons on the buffet as well.
If any of my readers use this idea over the holidays, please send me the pictures so I can feature them. Happy Holidays!
