The Partiologist: Is Your Tinsel Tangled?

Is Your Tinsel Tangled?

I promised more gold and because I always keep my promises.

I'll show you how I even made my buffet sparkle!  


Each chafing dish with tied with a big gold bow~
Across the top of the cupboards were gold and white paper stars lit up with a string of lights!
 The backdrop along the wall was Styrofoam (used from packing material) I had saved.  I wrapped it with white gift paper, added gold garland, gold paper dots and gold rhinestones.
The chafing dishes were placed on top of a white table runner.
On top of the table runner, I added gold fabric.
 The menu for the evening included...

Elf Chicks Chicken Italiano Wontons

Santa's Wagyu Beef & Ginger Dumplings

Rudolph's Bang Bang Shrimp

Mrs. Claus' Christmas Crab Cakes

Inviting my guests to enjoy the buffet, were the napkins...
 Yes, I do believe I'll have another!
 Before additional platters were filled, I glued gold garland and gold berries around the rim of each glass cake stand.  And yes, they peeled right off, only ruining a bit of nail polish!

Here's a sneak peek into what's up next...Shooting Star Cake Pops!
After dipping the chocolate cake ball in chocolate and sprinkling with edible glitter, I had to make something just as much fun for the cake pop stick!  Be careful not to get your tinsel in a tangle!
Always wanting more joy for my jingle, I used inexpensive gold stars and icicles.  I started cutting and gluing until I ended up with a shooting star, the perfect topper for my cake pops!
Are you ready for the Dessert Table????

  4. Yes, it would be fantastic if you hosted a blogger party! Great idea. Let's get on that!!!! Wouldn't it be so fun to gather all the fun food bloggers together for one giant party? You would be the perfect hostess:) Your gold party is perfect in every way. I love how you used gold tinsel to make the sticks for your cake pops. You are so clever.
