Mastering the art of Amy Atlas

How to create an Amy Atlas Dessert Table:
  • Start with a theme
  • Put attention to the table linens and service ware. They should be beautiful and coordinated to get a refined look
  • Vary the heights of trays, stands, bowls, jars and footed plates. Design cute tags for every vessel.
  • Repeat elements to create a sense of collection.
  • Add festive decorative elements to enhance your table. Your goal is to impress.
  • Create a backdrop to your buffet table.
  • Survey the bakers and candy purveyors on your area. Make sure to taste everything; it has to be delicious not just pretty.
  • Order desserts or candies based on what you want the table to look like instead of limiting the quantities to the number of guests. Plan for refilling, when applicable.
  • Provide goody bags for your guests to take home desserts or candies. The goody bags can be a container that fit with your party theme.

How much Candy do I buy?

You need an abundant choice to create an impact. Get 8 to 10 candy varieties. You need a least 8 ounces of candy per guest. To give you an idea, 6 ounces fill a small gift bag. Better to add more and round up because people will take some home.
