Tasting Party

One of our favorite desert choices in restaurants is a sampler of tasting sizes for the family to share.

Offering mini deserts is a great idea because at the end of a meal we want something sweet, but are content with just a bite or two. Naturally I have been searching for mini dishes so that I can replicate the idea at my own dinner parties.

I bought a variety of dishes from Pier 1. These images from their website are just so inspiring, hosting a tasting party looks like a lot of fun.

Once you have you beautiful new dishes then you will need to find some recipes. This board on Pinterest has some great suggestions.
Do you have any recipes that you care to share?


  1. How wonderful is that. The best part of a meal (sometimes) and then you get to try three.

  2. What a fantastic idea!! It also helps when guests have varying dessert tastes!! Will have to scout out Peir One.. thanks for the idea!!! HHL

  3. What a great idea! I am with you on dessert, after a large meal I prefer a few bites of a couple different desserts, than one gigantic one. Your next dinner party will surely be a hit!

  4. Miniature things always seem better than normal sizes.

  5. I just had a dessert tasting this weekend. What a great idea to replicate this at home!

  6. What fun! I love the little dishes for kabobs@
