{event showcase} Sweet 1st Birthday Party

Last month, I had the honor of producing a first birthday party for the sweetest little girl.  Appropriately, her mother wanted a {sweet} theme complete with cake, cupcakes, cookies, ice cream cones and candy not to mention a lunch buffet and entertainment for the children.  Below are some of the details to inspire your next {sweet} celebration!

The party was held in the Auditorium at Frying Pan Park Visitors Center.  It's a lovely space for a small gathering.  The room was instantly transformed with a little color - pink lemonade and sunshine yellow.

This was the dessert buffet.  The display included birthday cake and a separate smash cake, as well as a tower of cupcakes and tiers of lemon bars, raspberry cookies and macaroons.  So yummy!

This was the candy table.  Guests were invited to scoop up a few candies to take home.  Pink and yellow candies included jelly beans, M&Ms, rock candy, salt water taffy, sunkist chews and pineapple licorice, as well as milk chocolate covered almonds for the adults.

Kids had a blast eating candy and cupcakes and making ice cream sundaes!  The ice cream station included vanilla, chocolate and strawberry ice cream served in small styrofoam coolers wrapped in tissue paper; cherries, chopped nuts and sprinkles; chocolate and caramel syrup; and whipped cream!

Children were entertained with face painting and balloon sculptures!  Pretty impressive work!

For table centerpieces, we used washcloth cupcakes set on a pink melamine plate (mine) atop a plastic cake column.  It was simple and mostly inexpensive considering the washcloths are reusable - love, love, love it!  Children took home their goodies in a cupcake felt treat bag embellished with a custom tag.

Isn't she adorable?  So sweet!

Photos were graciously provided by my client and her photographer, Christine Meulemans Photography

Additional vendors included Lille Patisserie (desserts), Festive Effects (face painting and balloons), Saint Germain Catering (lunch buffet) and BBJ Linen (linens).
