Tis The Season for Holiday Entertaining

  I love when my friends visit.  If I know in advance that they're stopping over, I like to put together something simple to eat.  It's also a good excuse to indulge in a few sweet treats.

The pastries are store bought.  The trick is to display them nicely. 

I garnished the desserts with rosemary and sage for fresh-holiday look.

Then topped the danish with cranberries to resemble a wreath.

Mini pies wrapped with ribbon inspired by Jenny Cookies.

Wood Ellis Stand is from Magnolia.  

I refuse to spend money on expensive tablecloths.  Instead I purchased 2 yards of inexpensive fabric and made one myself.  You can also cover your table with a pretty sheet found at a thrift store.

Also if you serve your treats warm, your guests will think they're homemade!!

A pitcher full of eucalyptus to add a little color to the table.

Merry Christmas!  Thank you for stopping by today.  


  1. Great tips Brandi. And what a beautiful setting. Merry Christmas friend.

  2. Gorgeous Brandi and beautiful ideas. Merry Christmas sweet friend!

  3. Everything looks amazing. Love the idea of wrapping the pies with ribbon.

  4. Everything looks gorgeous! Serving the store bought desserts warm is such a neat tip! And I'll have to look into purchasing fabric for my tablecloths vs buying them! That would be such a money saver. Also love how you made a wreath on the danish!

  5. Beautiful, simply beautiful! I am thinking the drive from Alabama to Georgia is pretty easy!

  6. I Love your setting! Very inviting.
