Hi, I’m Jennifer

Creator of The Dessert Course

I’ve helped thousands of moms plan their children’s birthday parties. I am an Atlanta-based wife and mom of twin girls. Since 2011, I’ve been making it easier for moms to create parties their kids declare “the best ever!”

Before my daughters’ first birthday party, I did what moms everywhere do: I walked around and around the party store, and left with a pack of paper plates and napkins, and a lot of disappointment. I was not inspired. At all.

It took a few years of teaching myself everything I didn’t know that day in the party store, but by my daughters’ third birthday, guests were saying that I should be a party planner. I finally decided that my friends might be on to something.

Now, I’ve packaged everything I’ve taught myself into The Dessert Course, so you can plan the best dessert table ever.

Questions About the Dessert Course?

who is the course right for?

Maybe you’ve never designed a dessert table, and you’re nervous about making the wrong choices. Or maybe you HAVE created a dessert table, but it just didn’t turn out the way you imagined. Or, maybe you’ve got the party hosting bug and you want to improve your skills. If any of those statement sound familiar, The Dessert Course is right for you.

  • Save time and money planning your dessert table
  • Choose the ideas with the most impact

  • Build your serving pieces collection
  • Style the layout of your dessert table so it looks just right
  • Dress up your treats — even if they are homade or store-bought
  • Create a dessert table backdrop that becomes the centerpiece of your party
what's included in the course?

The course is taught online through six video lessons. Each lesson includes a homework assignment that will help you plan your next dessert table. There’s also a 57-page transcript that includes all the content, homework, and worksheets from the course. You can use the transcript to guide your planning of your future dessert tables.

What is the guarantee?

I want you to love The Dessert Course. If complete your homework and think the course hasn’t helped you plan your party, just send me your homework, and I’ll refund the full price of the course.

Couldn't I just teach myself all this?

You can do it yourself – I know, because I taught myself. But consider that it’s taken me more than a decade of party planning to feel that I was expert enough to bring you this course. Wouldn’t you like to shorten your learning curve and jump right to the part where you’re creating amazing dessert tables?

What if I don't have time to take a course?

Here’s what I’ve learned about taking highly-actionable courses: they give me focus. Once I’ve made the investment, I want to work through the material. The structure of the course and the homework assignments ensure that I’m working toward my goal.

The same is true of The Dessert Course. Yes, you will spend a few extra minutes each day watching the lessons and doing your homework. But the end result is that your dessert table is planned, so in making time for the course, you’ve accomplished the goal. Win win.

Let’s plan your dessert table!
