Making a party unique can be a surprisingly difficult task, simply because most things have been done before. Of course, choosing decorations, or a theme, or other things of that nature can personalise a party to some extent, but to really make someone feel special when throwing a party for him or her, it is important to address every last detail to really accomplish your goal. One great place to start can be the desserts present at the party, as most guests look forward to and enjoy dessert.
So, how can you personalise desserts to help make a party unique? Start by foregoing the average trip to the grocery store and instead think about some of the following unique dessert ideas.
Themed Cake - The most popular way to personalize a cake is to simply have a message written on top of a cake in frosting. While this is a nice gesture, you can actually take things a step further - particularly if young children are involved in the party - by picking up a themed cake from a store like Marks and Spencer. Cakes can be made in various designs, almost in artistic ways, and presenting a themed cake at a party can make the person the party is for feel very special.
Pie Selection - If you are throwing a party that would typically have a cake, but the person the party is for doesn't have a favourite cake - or doesn't even like cake - providing a selection of pies can be a unique and fun idea. With a few different pies available, the person being celebrated will have a personal choice of desserts, and guests will be able to enjoy options. In this way, by providing options, you can make the party dessert more unique.
Personalised Sweets - If you want to provide a light but personal touch, you can actually have various chocolates and sweets personalised for the occasion. This may involve something as simple as having a message or name printed onto candy wrappers, but it can definitely provide a unique dessert touch and make the party more personal and authentic.
Ice Cream Selection - Finally, and again particularly for parties for younger children, providing an ice cream bar can make for a very memorable dessert experience. With a few different flavours, a selection of toppings, and perhaps some warm brownies, party guests will be able to make their favourite ice cream dishes right at your party! This dessert itself isn't as personal, but it makes the party unique and memorable.
