A Dessert Party is the perfect ending to a night out or be part of a progressive dinner. It can also be a fun fundraising party or way to celebrate an adult birthday party.
They are easy to plan for, and family friendly.
Several years ago I worked in an office and our branch won an important goal. There were seven of us in the office, and as a reward, we were given a private mini-bus with driver, a nice budget and the day off. We spent the day shopping, having lunch and going to ride go-carts! And we finished the day at a great little dessert spot - that is all they carried. It was the perfect ending to the perfect day.
You can also have a party featuring desserts as an easy fundraiser. Just have a committee bring desserts and then charge admission!
If you'd like to put out a dessert spread, get creative. And nothing is better (to me at least) than getting creative with desserts!
Some ideas include:
You could also choose desserts from other regions of the country or world, and have a around the world party that is dessert themed. You could include things like flan for Mexico and Croissants for France.
We have a friend that loves pie. Every year he hosts a "piepalooza" party. It started out small, and now is huge annual event that they do at a community center. Everyone brings pie, eats pie, and leaves full and happy! There are so many pies, that the different varieties are each on their own separate table.
Need fun invitation wording? How about: "How Sweet it is...Join us for Dessert!"
