Pastel Pink & Blue Christmas Party Ideas

Glory of Glorious Treats sent in these beautiful shots of the creative “Vintage Pastel Christmas Dessert Table that she put together for a holiday party this year.

Inspired by the lovely vintage pink pottery that’s incorporated into the design, the  table features a vintage-pastel palette of pink & blue, plus sparkly holiday accents, colorful floral arrangements, and a variety of gorgeous treats. I seriously just want to pull the pretty iced sugar cookies right out of the screen!

Pastel Pink & Blue Christmas Party Ideas


I’m so excited today to be sharing a special Christmas project I’ve been planning for several months! This year I wanted to create an extra-special dessert table for a home holiday party…something to kick off the Christmas season in style!

I took my inspiration from some vintage pink pottery I’ve been collecting and then added some color accents of light blue and aqua. As a former florist, I had to include some beautiful flowers, as well as some sparkle in the form of Christmas ornaments. Please enjoy my Vintage Pastel Christmas…
