Space Party Spud Bar (11 photos)
I love pretty dessert tables as much as the next person, believe me! But I know that many parents send their children off to a party wondering if the peace and quiet of one less child for a few hours is worth the sugar-induced behaviour later that afternoon! There are lots more allergies around these days too, so for my latest feature in Peekaboo Magazine, (out last month...it's been a long time coming!) I designed a new printable collection; a Space themed, sugar-free party...
Enter the Potato 'Spud-nik' bar! - get it??!! (inspired by Ros from Friends!)
Based on my space invitation design, there were matching buffet labels, wallpaper, party dots (I made a cute transfer for the napkins, but can be used as regular cupcake toppers as well), sign, thank you tags & one-off party blowers.
The buffet featured heaps of hot foil covered potatoes with yummy galactic toppings! Each glass bowl rested on it's own 'launch-pad' made from ducting and poly fill.
Traditional silver slinky's made for a great sugar-free party favour and fit with our space them. It's sure to last longer than a lollipop and find a permanent place in the toy box!
I really like how the kids table turned out, and it had some clever 'space' placemats (made with matching A4 patterned paper and silver cake boards.) The foil covered legs make it look like this table is about to blast off into space!
I love the space garlands used behind this table from my beautiful friend Mel of The Paper Tie Affair. Seiously she is awesome and a kindred paper lover!!
And then finishing off with these co-ordinating party blowers following this tutorial.
All that fun and no sugar, means no hyper kids here!!
