Polka Dots & Pinwheels First Birthday

I am so excited to share this table with you!  I created it for one of my very dear friends' youngest son who just turned one!  The color palette for the party started with the birthday shirt she had gotten him, blues, greens, brown and polka dots, oh how I love polka dots!!!  I added some pinwheels into the theme and love the whimsical addition that they made!  I especially love how the look of The Pastry Pedestal, that I finally got to use (they are seriously amazing and the possibilities are endless!!!). 

Here are some of the photos from the day:
Dessert Table - Crepe paper ruffles act as a runner for the table

Coordinating jelly beans were used to cover the foam that that was used to hold the cake pops.  So cute!  Sugar cookies with custom labels were given as favors to the younger guests :)!

The Pastry Pedestal was used for a couple of cupcakes on the table.

The darling birthday boy!

 Thanks so much for stopping by!


Construction Themed Birthday Party

Just over a month ago (I know, I am very behind on my posts!) I had the pleasure of working with Emily from Busy Mommy!  She is a local blogger and her site is a super resource for so many things including food, fashion and family among many other things!

Her son was turning 4 and has a love of all things construction!  We worked together to create a dessert table for the celebration they would be sharing with their family and friends.  Emily's husband works for a construction company so I love that we were able to use "real" construction materials.  A sheet of plywood created the backdrop, construction cones made great balloon holders, concrete blocks were the perfect vessels for "caution cones" filled with caramel corn and of course caution tape was a must!  We also used a small pallet that they already had in place of a cake stand to display the cake made by local baker One Sweet Treat.

Here are a couple of the photos that Emily took of the party, be sure to check out her site for the complete post!
