Dinner Party Entertaining Must Haves, Part 3: Dessert Decadence Menu

As the holiday season approaches it’s time to start thinking about all of those fabulous dinner parties that you’ll either be attending or spearheading! In this four part series I’ll be sharing some dinner party must haves that are sure to help make these occasions extra special.

If you have a sweet tooth, then you’re in for a real treat – part 3 of this 4 part series is all about desserts! At the end of your tasty, savoury holiday feast, it’s time to relax, enjoy a coffee or a tea & nibble on something sweet & delectable. To me, holiday desserts should be elegant in presentation, not to difficult to prepare & of course, just sweet enough – a delightful way to top off your fabulous dinner party. Here a just a few of my favourite festive dessert ideas:
