PARTY DETAILS as told by Heidi…
This dessert table was for gorgeous little Sienna’s first birthday. First birthdays are so
special and Sienna’s mother wanted something really ‘wow’ for her baby girl. She requested pink and gold with glitter and left the rest to me. I was really excited to have so much freedom theming and styling this table and especially love this colour scheme. Pink and gold are a match made in heaven and glitter is all the rage. The theme was set a Royal Princess dessert table which was perfect because Sienna’s parents call her their “Princess.”
We had to have some tulle to reflect a Princess’ skirt so we made a custom pink tulle and glitter double frilled tableskirt with matching double frill riser. We also made glittery gold fabric draping for the tableskirt and backdrop to suit the royal affair. Gold cake stands were a must. I used a variety including some with intricate detail to suit the royal theme.
For the backdrop I envisaged a large princess carriage and entrusted the talented Nicole from Pretty and Print who always shares by vision and designs the most beautiful printables. I loved the backdrop which included an ‘S’ for Sienna and a really royal look with the different shades of gold and large carriage wheels. The two tier cake was made by my favourite Mel from Paper and String who never ceases to amaze me. I asked for gold glitter and got it!! I wanted a tall double tier cake to make the table something special. I ordered the custom acrylic glitter cake topper ‘Sienna’ with a crown on top from Glistening Occasions.
Mel made the most adorable cupcakes in shiny golden cases and adorned with princess accessories including a gold shoe, hairbrush, mirror, necklace with a pink glitter princess dress for the centre. Mel made triple glittered sugar cookies with handmade fondant flowers and piped with frosting in a rose shape. They were stunning! She also made princess cake pops which were dipped in pink glitter and adorned in three-dimensional golden crowns. The cake pop sticks (also from Glistening Occasions) were acrylic and tipped with matching pink and gold glitter.
The remainder of the sweets which included gold glitter macarons, traditional Italian cannoli with a shimmer of gold, pink profiteroles and strawberry mousse served in crystal were made with love by My Sweet Celebration. The flowers also by My Sweet Celebration were my favourite, roses, and there were plenty!! They added a real softness to the table and also a variety of shades of pink. I also decorated some of the vases in gold and pink glitter along with a fine ‘1’ which I felt needed including someone on the table.
