Holiday Table Challenge: Pizzazzerie

The next entry in our Holiday Table Challenge is from Courtney Dial of Pizzazzerie.  With a love of entertaining and design, Courtney is becoming a well-known stylist in the field of party design and décor.  A fairly new website on the scene, Pizzazzerie has quickly grown to be an online force in the entertaining industry, showcasing unique party designs and tablescapes.  I’m always excited to see what Courtney has up her sleeve for her next table…..and her entry for the Holiday Table Challenge certainly did not disappoint!

Here are the pictures and description (in her words) of Courtney’s table:

Gold & Cranberry Red Decadent Dessert Table was the theme. I wanted to use rich golds and cranberry reds because those colors are so gorgeous during the holiday season. It just reminds me of cozyness but also decadence.

Trees were also a theme using many different shapes and sizes as the decor. The mini doughnuts were hung on a wrapped cone tree and topped with a gold bow. Wooden rosette trees flanked the main sweets display. I made the 3 cake stands by using wooden candlesticks and wooden square pieces which I spray painted metallic gold. Then I hot glued them together, added a ribbon trim, and the gold glittered signs.  Laurel of Go Against The Grain sent me 2 gorgeous gold trees to add in that are made from recycled magazines, they are oh so neat and just gorgeous in person.

We kept the “decadent” theme with the desserts which were gourmet mini doughnuts from Dough-A-Deer as well as fabulously decorated fancy sugar cookies from Jimmemmajack Cookies. On top that I added in sea salt caramels, vanilla and chocolate macaroons, pumpkin mouse cups, white chocolate mouse cups, toffee and chocolate covered pretzel rods, and a gourmet chocolate caramel cake. Woo! Lots of sugar but all very gourmet and fancy which fit well with the gold and cranberry colors.
