Maddy from Inspired Bride and Amanda from Bake It Pretty recently put together this absolutely stunning “Winter Wonderland” themed dessert buffet… seriously, how gorgeous is this?!

Better yet, they’ve broken the buffet down into a series of detailed DIY posts for each individual element – from the winter wonderland cupcakes (pictured below) to the dessert treat bags, so that holiday hostesses & brides-to-be can recreate this exact look at home!

The white & aqua blue color palette looks so pretty together and would also work nicely for a Tiffany-themed wedding or bridal shower

Leigh Wells of Ink Wells Calligraphy also provided the fantastic hand lettering on the set of downloadable table signs and favor bag labels.

Pictured above: marshmallow pops are always a fun, surprisingly easy treat that makes for an impressive display.

Dessert buffet treat bags make for very pretty party favors, especially when filled with winter wonderland brownie pops:
