Entertaining Inspiration: Winter's Bounty

Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean that there is not delicious fruit to enjoy. The winter season has great fruits and veggies that are ready to be gathered. A fun way to celebrate the fruits of winter is to plan a “Winter’s Bounty Dessert and Cocktail party”. Plan it as an evening or weekend afternoon celebration around winter’s delish fruits. Ask your guest to join in with the preparation by preparing a dessert or bring along a cocktail recipe that incorporates the winter fruit.

To see how to get the party started

Setting the Scene

Keep it simple. Set up the desserts on a rectangle table that is draped with a cream or white tablecloth accented with a colorful runner to match the hues of the party. A large clear bowl with the star fruit will suffice as the centerpiece. Print up some place cards to identify each dish, this will be of great help to your guest and you, as you will not spend the entire evening answering the question “And what’s that dessert”.  If you need a template, here’s one. Also if you’re going to set up the place cards and have guest bringing dishes, find out head of time what they are bringing. Set up the bar on a round table with a drink menu that list the signature cocktails for the evening.
