Holiday Heritage Series: Lowcountry Dessert Bar inspiration

We love dessert in my house, so when I’m hosting family and friends, we try to have a variety of sweets. Dessert bars a great way to show your selection of treats and allow guests to choose what they want. Add a little extra holiday cheer by decorating the area with some easy, low budget items to create a Holiday Lowcountry Dessert Bar. Please take a peek at mine below and view the delicious treats on our holiday menu here made by Carolima’s Lowcountry Cuisine & What’s Gina Cooking.

Choose a Color scheme: For this dessert bar, I chose traditional Christmas colors; red and green. Use the colors in a mix of different materials, patterns, and shapes to add dimension and texture to your design.

Add Natural Elements: Flowers and plants are a lively way to add nature to your design. I chose Poinsettias because they are a traditional Christmas plant. Still, they were first brought to the U.S. to greenhouses in South Carolina in the 1820s, giving them history in the Lowcountry. Of course, I added palm leaves for a traditional coastal Lowcountry touch. We layered the platters over the palm leaves, placing a poinsettia on each end of the island in our kitchen. Recreate this design by using flowers, plants, or mini Christmas trees you already have around your home.

High Low Elements: Add high and low elements to your dessert bar with flat platters, various sized bowls, tall vases, cake stands, or faux Christmas tree decorations.

Classic and Clever Decorations: Add some eye-catching elements with items found around your home. We used a variety of classic serving bowls and fill with extra ornaments in our color scheme with a touch of gold. I added serving spoons with pineapples for another Lowcountry touch. Use different sizes and shapes of bowls and ornaments to add dimension.

Linen Napkins: Add colorful linen on your platters to lay your desserts over. Beautiful linens or even paper napkin makes cleaning platters easy and bring attention to your delicious sweets. Add they make clean up nice and easy. We chose napkins in a beautiful indigo another nod to Lowcountry style.

Variety of Desserts: The essential element of a Lowcountry Dessert Bar is, of course, the Desserts. I like to have at least a couple of options for guests to choose from, including cookies, cakes, pies, or custard. These desserts were from our Holiday Heritage Series; Carolima’s Lowcountry Cuisine who made their Charleston Chewies, Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies, and Carrot Cake and “What’s Gina Cooking?” made her Sweet Potato Bread Pudding.
