Alphabet 2nd Birthday Party!

Believe it or not, I have ANOTHER kid…who I’ve never blogged about. 😀 Until now! I’m still in the process of digging up his first birthday pics but in the meantime we’re just gonna skip ahead to his SECOND birthday.

We did an alphabet theme for this one because the child knew his alphabet forwards and backwards way before he turned two. And boy themes are TOUGH…farm animals, cars, jungle, cartoon/tv shows…ugh. Not my style so much but the alphabet theme turned out cute! Here are a few pics from our fun day…

It was a fun party with beautiful weather and awesome friends! And a certain two year old ate WAY too many chocolate letters off of the chocolate chip cookie bars while mom wasn’t looking but hey, it was his birthday and c’mon chocolate is just GOOD. 😉  We love you E!

Kitty Cat 4th Birthday Party!

Since birthday parties are rolling around again, I thought I’d finally get around to posting LAST year’s birthday party pictures. I’m so on top of it! Avery decided on a Kitty Cat theme which was super fun to come up with all the decor and treats for. All the little desserts were made by me except the AWESOME cat cake. Goodies included chocolate cherry mice, feline faces, cat claws, meow mix and hair balls!

We had such a fun time! Hope you enjoy the pics!

P.S. If you want to see past birthdays here is her Rainbow Sprinkles and Confetti FIRST Birthday Party, Ice Cream Shoppe 2nd Birthday Party and Sparkle Princess 3rd Birthday Party!

The table!

Fire Truck Birthday Party

A few weeks ago I was asked to do a dessert table for a little boy’s firetruck/firehouse birthday party.  Of course I said yes!  It sounded like so much fun.  But then I realized…what kind of desserts do I do for a firetruck theme?!  I have done plenty of dessert tables for weddings, baby showers and bridal showers but a boy’s firetruck birthday party?  Ummm, no.

I immediately turned to Google for ideas and was able to come up with some fun stuff!  I honestly am not a big decorator/detail person when it comes to desserts.  I like to make stuff that tastes amazing and just looks good.  Fondant and decorated sugar cookies have never been my thing.  So it was challenging to find desserts that I could do that didn’t require crazy decorating skills.  But I came up with a great spread! If I do say so myself.

We had Twizzlers to represent a firehose, fire hydrant sugar cookies, “flaming” yellow and red swirled marshmallows, red and yellow Jelly Belly’s and of course, cupcakes!  I was SO happy with how everything turned out and so was the client (which of course is the MOST important thing).  It was a fun challenge and more importantly everything was delicious!
