I feel there is no need for your home accessories to be committed to one specific location in your home. As much as I like pretty things, I want these things to be functional as well as fashionable. My coffee table decor will change weekly, if not daily, depending on what we have going on. For a chill night at home I like to use our coffee table tray for desert.
This dessert tray only took about 5 minutes to throw together (excluding the 15 minutes it took us to pick out a bottle of wine). Rather than just bring out the wine and a big slab of chocolate, the tray contained the mess while allowing us to sip and nibble by candle light.
Dessert doesn’t need to be fancy, but it can be pretty. I love good dark chocolate broken up into pieces. The pretty dish makes it look like more thought went into preparing it. Fresh fruit or cookies are perfect to pair with your chocolate. Well, anything really is good to pair with chocolate.
