Years ago, I shared the prettiest little idea for a dessert bar, a Peach Shortcake Dessert bar to be specific. It was so easy to put together, and everyone absolutely loved it, so I thought I’d pull it out of the archives and share it again now that we’re smack in the middle of peach season.
When I initially put it together, I was creating an impromptu thank you for a crew that had helped me film for a week, and since I had a whole mess of beautiful Georgia peaches, I thought I’d do something using my Peach Shortcake recipe, and that’s where the idea for this Peach Shortcake Dessert Bar was born. Now, if you don’t mind, I thought I’d share how I decorated it and put it all together.
I started with my color palette—I love the colors purple and peach together, so I used them as the basis for the look of the whole thing. I laid down a lilac-colored linen tablecloth that I had picked up a couple years prior, pulled out all the hobnail milk glass I owned, and found a mix of beautiful silver forks. I found a beautiful white bowl that I could put sugar-laced, sliced peaches in and another to hold freshly whipped cream. For the shortcake itself, I sliced it and piled it high on a white pedestal plate.
