Guest Post – Sweet Treats with Dog n Bird

By this point, my love for sweets and goodies is well documented so it seems to fitting to welcome the lovely Bird of Dog ‘n Bird Artful Wedding to share her picks for fun and unique wedding dessert ideas. Without further ado, I’ll turn it over to Bird…

Hello! I’m Bird. Cyd inspires me each day with her beauty and exquisite ideas. I’m delighted to be contributing to The Sweetest Occasion! Today I’m going to knock you a little sugar, serving up 11 high-impact treats to serve alone or create a memorable dessert buffet.

dessert-favori-ideas-pink-marshmallowsA modern take on the classics: Mini pink snowballs and pink meringue butterfly kisses. A fun update to the macaron, these sugar smooches are romantic served in rose petals. XOXO cookies would be adorable piled on vintage cake stands. Jello tarts with tiny strawberry kisses inside round out the love.

I am loving all of these ideas! They are perfect for a wedding, but would be equally fabulous for a great birthday party, backyard bbq or shower, too. Thanks, Bird! I’m so thrilled to have you visit The Sweetest Occasion! xoxo
