We are still full to the brim from all the desserts we had for Christmas. I definitely made sure that my family’s sweet teeth were satisfied. That being said, the last day of 2011 deserves to go out on a sweet note. I have salivated over so many pretty tables paying homage to the end of the year and couldn’t resist the temptation to prepare a small one of my own.
The lemon cookies and white chocolate dipped pretzels were a holiday item and were drastically marked down at the grocery store. Luckily Jelly Belly’s are sold by the pound so just buying a handful wasn’t a problem.
What’s New Year’s Eve or any other celebration without champagne? I also combined vanilla bean ice cream with a cream cheese, whipped cream mixture that I used in my banana pudding parfaits for a quickie frosty treat.
When Samara was here for Christmas she made a Crème de Menthe Dark Chocolate Cheesecake and I stashed some for this table. The Hershey’s kisses were already dressed for the occasion so I included them also. A little bling here and there set the tone for a send off to a great year.

Thank you so much for of the well wishes and great ideas on how to heal my heel. Although I won’t be dancing on the tables as the sign on the dessert buffet suggests, I will be drinking champagne. It’s truly been a blessing gaining so many new friends this past year. I hope 2011 has been an awesome year for you and wish good health and prosperity for you in 2012. Take Care and Be Well.
