For this special first birthday party, the celebrant's parents requested a Hello Kitty dessert table. We decided to use the classic Hello Kitty and play on the sweetness of both the dessert table and the little birthday celebrant. With this in mind we created a sweet shoppe by taking a dollhouse and turning it into a cupcake stand. We filled the dollhouse with several flavored mini cupcakes: Ube (taro), Chocolate Nutella, Strawberry Cheesecake, Mocha, and Red Velvet. Each cupcake had a custom cupcake flag/topper. The two most sought after desserts were the Hello Kitty cookies and chocolate pops. Since every first year old needs to blow out their very first birthday candle, we created a dainty daisy cake made to look like a large cupcake by surrounding the edge with strawberry wafer sticks. For guests to take home some treats, we wrapped square favor boxes with ribbon and a happy birthday tag. Lastly, I created large pinwheels as added decor to the table.
