Parties by WH Hostess: Sunflower Soiree {Part II}

I hope you all enjoyed the decorations and food ideas in Part I of our Sunflower Soiree feature this morning.  I’m back with all delicious details from the desserts, which we were lucky enough to have featured on Amy Atlas last week!

The dessert table received many “oohs” and “ahhs” and is personally one of my all-time favorite tables to work on!  I wanted a fitted tablecloth for this table, something that resembled a cabana awning.  I sewed it myself in order to make it fit the table perfectly and even added a white pom pom trim on the hem.  Two wrought iron trellis’ anchored the table and held sunflower pomander balls.  A banner made out of our coordinating patterns was strung between the two to frame the table.

Allyson Jane created stunning, hand-iced sunflower cookies, as well as “6” and “0” cookies to go along with our birthday celebration.

The two-tiered cake with scalloped design held center court, and was dressed up with fondant flowers by Two Sugar Babies.  Cake pops by Flour & Iced sat atop mini cake stands that were decorated with gingham pom pom trip and polka dot ribbon, and mini chocolate cakes were topped with fondant flowers.  Color-coordinated candy was placed in glass jars and labeled with coordinating candy jar tags.

JP Creatibles decorated darling cookies that incorporated both the sunflower, and all of our coordinating patterns (swiss dot, sunflower grid and yellow chevron).  We sent guests home with a striped take out food box with a sunflower sticker on it full of sweets to enjoy.
