{Part 1-The Dessert Table} My Christmas Wish Collection By A Blissful Nest

I am so excited to show you our new holiday collection. If you popped in last Thursday then you saw it was debuted on the fabulous site Celebrations At Home. This collection is near and dear to my heart as this holiday season is all about family and being together (more so than ever!). You all know how I love modern but I really wanted this to still have a very classic feel. So the traditional red and forest green got a pop of lime green added to it. Coming from a designer background, I LOVE layering patterns and I have a mild form of addiction to the chevron stripe. Just mild. =)I found this classic dot fabric that I feel adds a classic base.

I created this berrie backdrop for the dessert table from a berrie branch (that was purchased at Michaels last year at the end of the season for 60% off!!) and these decorative wood pieces (also in the sale bins at Michaels). I spray painted the stars red and the letters in gold and adhered them together using wood glue. Then hot glued ribbon to the backs and tied them to the draped branch. SOOO easy!!

I am a sucker for cupcakes and love to dress them up as much a possible! I was so honored to work with Brittany of Edible Details to make these custom fondant toppers to match my collection.

Did you catch my little faux bois Santa on the back of the table? Picked him up the week before at the Salvation Army for $4!

She also adorned our cake by Baby Boy Bakery with these fondant holiday glitter ornaments and holly leaves.

These darling cake pops got a little fun treatment with these flags. So easy to print on matte adhesive paper and cut out!

Yummy sugar cookies also get some extra decoration with some fondant toppers with little holly leaves on them.

Our “wishing” tree was the idea behind this collection. Meant to inspire each person and to share each family members dreams and wishes for the new year. I took branches from the yard and spray painted them the same color as the stars hanging from the berrie branch. The sprayed them (once dry) with adhesive spray and showered them generously with red glitter. Last year I picked up these glitter clips on sale (but would be easy to make in the same way as the branches). Using the glitter clips each wishing card (made by using our printable tags) is attached to the tree with the wish written on the back and read to the family after the big Christmas meal.

Little hands can not stay away from all the treats and Lauren was NO exception!

Stay tuned for more details on this Christmas collection! There still is the Formal Dinner Table, Kids Table, Hot Cocoa Table, and Drink Bar.
