Autumn Dessert Table

Autumn Dessert Table

It is starting to feel like fall with all of the kids going back to school, and nights getting just a little bit cooler.  I personally love fall, because it means the smells of apple cider, cinnamon and pumpkin, follow you almost everywhere you go.  That’s why when Kathleen who is the owner of Sweet Table Chicago sent me this Autumn sweets table, I started craving a hot apple cider and pumpkin bread almost immediately and have been loving everything that has to do with Fall since!

The centerpiece of this table is what Kathleen calls a mile-high apple pie, and it is surrounded by cute leaf shaped sugar cookie favors for all of the guests that they topped with a gold shimmer and hung from the bare branches.  Some of the other goodies are chocolate French macarons that lined the front of the table, and mini taffy apples (plain caramel and almond covered), chocolate caramel corn, pumpkin chip muffins, cinnamon swirl mini cupcakes and homemade caramels adorned the sides.   And what is an Autumn table without glasses of apple cider and some white pumpkins to complete the Autumn look!

And lucky for us, Kathleen shared the details on how to make the cute and easy favors that you see above!  Just follow the four easy steps and you will have some autumn treats that your guests will love to bring home!  Happy Fall!

  1. I love this! The branches with the hanging cookies are my favorite part! I can’t wait for fall too :)

  2. I am SO EXCITED about fall! I love this time of year, and my only question is when is it socially acceptable for me to start drowning my house in fall decor? Autumn puts me in such a great mood. I love this dessert table!

    1. I asked myself that last week as I looked through BHG and found some awesome acorn decorating ideas!! I’m ready to decorate right now!

  3. Gorgeous! That pie looks incredible. How do you make a taffy apple mini like that? Love it all!

  4. Darling!
    Just so happens that we had my daughter’s cake tasting last night, and since she LOVES Pumpkin-Chocolate Chip muffins, we’re doing those as lighter cupcakes (with a dollop of cream cheese frosting) for her wedding cake.
    A separate Dessert and Coffee Buffet will hold batches of old-fashioned Snickerdoodles and Gingersnaps, Cinnamon Macaroons, Nuts and designer-wrapped Hershey’s miniatures for extra goodies! ….And guests will receive handmade caramel apples wrapped in cello at each place setting for favors……Did I mention the wedding theme is Vintage and the date is October 16th?

    1. Those Pumpkin-Chocolate Chip muffins sound DIVINE!! As does the rest, you can’t go wrong with Fall and a Vintage theme!

      1. Katie,
        Would you believe the request for Pumpkin-Choc. Chip cupcakes at her wedding came from her love of discovering them at a familiar Nashville coffee house across the street from her college (Belmont) – Bongo Java! Our ‘cake lady’ is trying to replicate them, with a lighter texture….so yum!!
        By the way, you girls are doing a fabulous job with Pizzazzerie! I also LOVE Phronsie’s collaborations, too…great talent all!
        p.s. I posted the Flamingo Party on my blog, since it’s too cute, and I’m totally crazy for the pink bird!

        1. LOVE Bongo Java!!! Phronsie is my Mom so I will be sure she reads this comment – it will make her very happy!

  5. Thanks for the post, Katie! So glad you all liked it! Hattie, the mini taffy apples were made by taking a melon baller and carving out little balls of apple. Pat the apple with a towel to remove excess juices. Push a lollipop stick through the center of the apple, coat in caramel and roll in nuts if desired.

  6. Kathleen, Thanks for the how-to! I’ll just have to give it a try. Thanks for sharing. Great job!

  7. this is so gorgeous and inspiring-fall is my favorite time of year(besides CHRISTMAS)!
    thanks for the beautiful and cozy post!

  8. Great post. These desserts look awesome and love the display!

  9. Love the neutral color palate for this dessert table. Very versatile and elegant!
