My husband was turning 30 and had one request 'No party... Can we just go away for the weekend, you me and Angel-Rose' our three year old daughter. I agreed as I need any excuse for a holiday. But what he didn't know was that I'd organized for twenty of our family and friends to come away with us. And to top it off I organized for a surprise birthday party while we were away. What a shame he did end up finding out about his surprise birthday party, however, he still loved every little detail that went into it.
The birthday party was held at The Wharf Seafood Restaurant Nelson Bay. My inspiration for the theme was my husband’s true belief in Archangel Michael his protector. Archangel Michael is considered to be the Protector of Love. My husband keeps his statue on his bedside. What a theme to work with.
Jacki from Blissfully Sweet made the cake, cake pops, cookies, pannacottas and chocolates.
The colour palette for the dessert table was purple (Archangel Michaels colour), white, silver, black and bronze.
The cake was a Two Dimensional replica of my husband’s Archangel Michael statue which I ended up featuring on the table as it means the world to him. The cake was a white chocolate and raspberry mud with white chocolate ganache.
The Pannacotta’s were placed inside pillar candle holders. A small silver candle was placed inside each Pannacotta to make them resemble real candles.
The cookies were white heart angel wings as Archangel Michael is the protector of love.
Cake pops were featured along with the Archangel Michael statue and had silver dusting on top.
Chocolates had Archangel Michael wrapping with diamonds along his chest to symbolize his love radiating towards us.
I also included Rock Candy as they looked like purple crystal rocks (Archangel Michael’s colour) with protection power which were obtained from Sweet Style. They were displayed alongside his Scorpio statue.
Each family also received a bottle filled with sugar almonds (purple rocks).
The bonbonniere was designed and made by myself. I made the Thank You tags and attached a purple flower to each box and two Chocolate Truffles. All Printables were created by me to match the Thank You tags.
