Break the ice with an eye-catching macaron tower in the shape of a Christmas tree. Unconventionally, this tree uses aqua and pastel turquoise macarons decorated with white bows, very Tiffany-esque. For something more playful, cosy up to some cute wintery characters. Choose from a modelled penguin topper or some spectacular Nutcracker-themed cupcakes.

Deck your table with a stunning violet arrangement of sugar flowers or say season's greetings with a bright red showstopper adorned with seasonal sugar blooms. For something more inspired, a selection of hand-decorated temari balls would really enhance a winter tablescape.
