Valentine’s Day honours love – love for your partner, but also friends and family. So how about giving your loved ones a special treat by designing Valentines Dessert table decorations? Because the gifts must not be missing sweets, whether in the form of chocolates, a cake, chocolate biscuits or other delicacies. The dessert table that we would like to introduce to you consists of any desserts that you can prepare yourself or buy ready-made, as well as some decorations such as pretty ribbons and roses that add a little colour to the whole. The idea is an inspiration from the film Chocolat.
Dessert table for Valentine’s Day – a feast as a surprise
After laying on any tablecloth (in this case a blue one), you can start decorating the dessert table for Valentine’s Day with a gold-coloured ribbon. As an alternative, you can also use masking tape. First, lay it down so that an “X” is created.
Decorate the dessert table for Valentine’s Day with golden ribbons
Then cross this X with additional ribbons. There are triangles in which you later place the vases with the roses. Instead of roses, you can, of course, use any other flowers and you can also choose the vase and its colour. But it should best match the tablecloth.
The dessert table for Valentine’s Day gets prettier with roses
As already mentioned, you can prepare the desserts yourself or buy them from the baker or confectioner. The best variant is to combine both so that the dessert table for Valentine’s Day gets another personal touch. But since it would really take a lot of time to do everything yourself, just get a few finished things.
Dessert made from delicious cookies for Valentine’s Day
Since muffins are a very popular dessert, you can consider baking them yourself for the dessert table for Valentine’s Day. You can find many delicious recipes with us, but the main thing is that they are nice and chocolate-like for Valentine’s Day. The chocolate strawberries from our recipes are also a great idea. The advantage is that they take up little time, but are all the more delicious.
A candied blood orange dessert
You can also place candied blood oranges with chocolate on the dessert table for Valentine’s Day. This also visually contrasts with the dark, chocolatey desserts that will be on the table. To prepare them, all you have to do is slice the oranges and then blanch them, after which you put them in an ice bath to stop the cooking process. The slices are then boiled in a mixture of 1 1/2 cups of sugar and a cup of water for about 45 minutes. After you have cooled down, you only need to dip them in glaze, which you can get with the help of a water bath.
A delicious idea for Valentine’s Day with chocolate as a dessert
Now you can design a chocolate plate for the dessert table for Valentine’s Day. Here you can let your imagination run wild. In our example, a star shape was created with a mixture of cocoa powder, cinnamon and chilli powder. You can now spread chocolate pieces, chocolates or nuts (preferably almonds) on top.
Enjoy a cheese platter for Valentine’s Day
The cheese platter, which you can design for the dessert table for Valentine’s Day, offers a great change. Choose any cheese, whether Gouda, mountain cheese or Emmentaler. The main thing is that it tastes good to you and your loved one. Of course, blue cheese looks particularly luxurious and would be the best choice. But we admit that it does not suit everyone. Decorate the cheese platter with a few grapes.
Diverse dessert selection for Valentine’s Day
Depending on the time of day for which the dessert table is intended for Valentine’s Day, you can offer wine, coffee, tea, juice or something carbonated as a beverage.
The dessert cookies can be replaced by muffins
Put together the dessert table for Valentine’s Day
All you have to do now is to distribute all the plates nicely on the dessert table for Valentine’s Day. You can use the gaps between the belts or place the plates partially on them. It’s all a question of aesthetics. Cake stands or cake stands are also pretty, which you can use wonderfully to highlight certain desserts.
