Bake Shop Dessert Table

We’re loving this Little Bakers Party that Carly from The Creative Journal designed for her daughter Amelie’s birthday party. As soon as Amelie hears that the mixer is on, she runs out for her apron so it was an easy decision to create an Amelie’s Bakery for her party. Sweet treats on the bake shop dessert table included 4 homemade cakes {caramel mud, white chocolate mud, chocolate mint mud & chocolate mud}, tartlets, rolling pin cupcakes, mini pancake stacks, donuts, croissants, and chocolates. Lil baker guests also were able to decorate their own cupcakes and cookies and take them home in personalized bakery boxes. Absolutely lovely! Scroll down for the […]

Corner Store Themed Party

We’re loving this clever “Corner Store” themed party that Kendra Plastow created for her nephew Oliver’s first birthday. The birthday boy loves to spray water on vegetables and fruit with a spray bottle so Kendra came up with the corner store/market theme. Kendra cleverly tied in the theme “we’re there for you at every corner” throughout the party signage. Kendra named the 2013-established mock store “The Happy Bluebird” since Oliver’s family calls him blue bird. The menu for the lil store owner’s party included fresh market vegetables and fruit as well as a few treats. The backdrop and packaging, especially the canned food packaging, are so well designed! We also […]
