Land of Sweets birthday (23 photos)
I was invited to style a Land of Sweets themed party backdrop for a Pink Junebug Designs’ summer line. We shot at a wonderful historic location at Defuniak Springs, Fl with an adorable gazebo that I chose as the main party area.
When you think of Land of Sweets usually the mind goes to the Candyland setting with lots of candy and very typical colors. I chose to go with a slightly different interpretation, adding a refreshed style and whimsy to this old favorite.
It is a land where the trees are dripping with candy of all sorts, flowers spout lollipops and edible bunting makes the air alive. I chose several elements I wanted to incorporate: tulle, mason jars, pinwheels, lanterns… these were combined in different combinations throughout the setting.
THE DESSERT TABLE featured candies in different sized jars, including cupcakes in jars and marshmallow pops. I also used natural wood crates and green moss “rocks” as background.
THE TABLE SETTING included a pinwheels and lanterns centerpiece and a repeat of mason jar and tulle detail for the drinking glasses and place settings.
THE FAVOR TABLE featured sugar cookies and bubble gum necklaces. The bubble gum necklaces were inspired by the One Charming Party blog post, I decked them out with tulle and wider ribbon. A selection of bubblegum colors was available for this craft/ activity, again in mason jars.
The necklaces were packed in white boxes with stickers with the name of the birthday girl on the front. The girls also chose cookies as favors, packed in personalized flat favor bags that were sealed with stickers, with the birthday girl’s name on it.
