You know y’all, entertaining doesn’t have to be so difficult. Heck, I didn’t even need Brandon to help me with a centerpiece on this one.
I was home last week doing a little filming with my own team from Paula Deen Enterprises. We were shooting some really fun pictures…with live animals y’all! I can’t wait for everyone to see them in the coming months here on my website. We even shot behind the scenes video so you could see when Tom the turkey got to flapping his wings and nearly took my head off! Well, I wanted to do something special for the crew and I had a mess of beautiful Georgia Peaches to make into my Peach Shortcake. It was really simple and reminded me how important it is to thank those around us for all the hard work they do. Here’s my recipe for a Peach Shortcake Dessert Bar:
I love the colors purple and peach together, so I used them in this impromptu dessert bar. I laid down a lilac colored linen tablecloth that I picked up a couple of years ago. Got out all the fun hobnail Milk Glass I own and a mix of my silver forks. I needed a lot for this large crew! I put my sugar laced sliced peaches in a beautiful white bowl and the whipped cream in another. My shortcakes, I sliced and put on a white pedestal…piled high.
I hope this inspires you to throw together an impromptu party for all the wonderful people in your life. Your only limitation is your imagination. I’d love to hear your thoughts. Please leave me a comment and let me know if you tried my idea or did something even better!
