Fashion Advice...beyond your cakes.
Keep your party or wedding colors consistent and simple. Choose two or three colors and repeat them throughout your food, décor, and other elements of your event.
Label your buffet with classy handwritten signs. The rounded corner paper dividers in a jar of Dessert Skirtz make a perfect label for your delectable goodies. Just use a silver metallic pen for an instantly fabulous display.
Just like a real Texas hairdo, a fabulous looking buffet needs some height! Use bowls turned upside down, and covered with cloth napkins or pretty fabric, to elevate a couple of your platters.
Begin your décor outside. Whether it is a black and white color scheme, a bridal or baby shower, or a little girl tea party, carry your theme to the front door and beyond.
Give an invitation with WOW! Slip your cupcake into your favorite Dessert Skirtz, and put the party details on a square of cardstock...tucked right in the butter cream frosting!
Lighting makes all the difference in the party world. Set the mood with colored light bulbs, lovely lamps, up-lights, and candles.
Use red bandanas as napkins and mason jars as cups for your next BBQ gathering or summer party.
For maximum petal impact, choose one type of bloom in one color and use it from the entry to the buffet.
Get creative with your containers. Use pitchers to display your flowers and a watering can to pour the drinks for a little girl’s garden party.
Set up a self-serve drink station, and give yourself a chance to enjoy your own event! Stock it with a fancy tub of sparkling soda bottles on ice and a pretty pitcher of sliced citrus fruits in water.
Use cupcakes or muffins wearing Dessert Skirtz as your place cards. Write your guests’ names right on the Skirtz, or tuck the place card right in the buttercream icing!
If you can stack wooden blocks, you can make a show stopping dessert or cupcake tower to display your treats in seconds! Begin with a bowl turned upside down…top it with a plate…then another bowl…then a plate…then a bowl… and finally the last plate. Voila! A cupcake or muffin tower. Don’t forget to cover your cakes!! This looks best with 3 different size plates, using the smallest on top. To make it more permanent, glue it together.

Use frozen berries as ice cubes. Beautiful, healthful, and they don’t water down your drink!
Look beyond flowers for your centerpiece. Lemons, pinecones, pears, artichokes, or beautifully gift wrapped boxes are just a few ideas to get you started.
Keep the color of your platters matching, but mix up the shapes and styles for a coordinated, but not fussy display on your buffet.
For maximum impact, use a solid tablecloth in a color from the Dessert Skirtz.
Dessert Skirtz turn your cupcakes into amazing party favors. Place each one in a clear box with a ribbon and a tag with the guest’s name on top. They can double as your place cards for the table!
For an anniversary party, pair one of our Wedding Expressions Dessert Skirtz with your favorite chocolate cupcake recipe. Use silver platters and bowls for the buffet and sprinkle a favorite color throughout with flowers and linens. Be sure to display wedding photos of the happy couple in lovely silver frames.
Dress your cupcakes with your favorite Dessert Skirtz and enclose them in a clear plastic box. Tie a ribbon around the box and attach a tag. They make amazingly sweet party favors. Perfect for a wedding reception!
Room mom extraordinaire… grab your magic wand! Use Dessert Skirtz for the next classroom party to personalize those store bought goodies. Just drop muffin baking cups inside the Skirtz. They work beautifully for popcorn, small crackers, snack mix, or whatever treats are on your list…and of course the always perfect cupcake!
Use the shredded crinkle paper in the top of your Dessert Skirtz jar to decorate your party table. It looks amazing when peeking out the top of a jar of jellybeans in your party colors. Or, just sprinkle it across the table.
Eat dessert first. Just be sure your cakes aren’t showing!
