Yesterday, I showed off all of the darling details from our Nesting Newbies photo shoot…..and today, I am back with the dessert table details! Let me tell you, this was one of my all-time favorite tables to put together. I loved the monochromatic green candy, the bold patterns on the paper goods and cookies, and the sweet silhouette that graced everything from the sign, to the cupcake toppers, to the fondant toppers by Two Sugar Babies.
I used a black console from our home as the table. Not only did I want the black piece as the focal point, but I also loved how I was able to play with decorating the shelves! And for a kids party….those candy jars were right at their level! The table was framed with pom pom garlands that I made from craft-store finds. I draped several garlands on each side to look like a set of drapes, and placed a hanging sign in the middle.
Candy Warehouse supplied me with an amazing assortment of green candy. I loved playing with the different shades, and by putting them in different glass apothecary jars and containers, it made for a really sweet look. I did pop in a couple of containers of white candy for a little “pop!” I asked two of my favorite dessert table ladies to create goodies for me – Charynn from Two Sugar Babies made incredible fondant toppers for my big cupcakes (can you believe how perfectly she matched our silhouette and exploded lattice pattern?) and Allyson Jane made us fabulous couture cookies with our coordinating patterns on them. Tip: I always line my platters with coordinating paper…..it helps pull together the theme!
The table was “branded” with coordinating food tent cards, candy jar tags and of course, cupcake toppers. I had white, metal tins (dressed up with polka dot ribbon and a darling sticker) for the kids to fill up with candy to bring home. Not only is it a perfect party favor, but it also serves as an activity during the party…..our birthday girl had a fabulous time selecting candy to put in her tin!
