Strawberry Lemonade is a favorite of the birthday girl so it was an easy choice for the party theme. Stefanie of Anne and Blue Paperie took my ideas and created a perfect vintage inspired birthday invitation along with party printables to coordinate with the theme.
Once the invitations were in the mail, I began the dessert table preparations. I started by looking for a white tablecloth that had a vintage feel. I was unable to find exactly what I was looking for so I purchased a simple white tablecloth from Target. I went with a size larger than I actually needed. After cutting the tablecloth down to the correct size and hemming the edge, I used the extra fabric to add a simple ruffle around the edges.
The backdrop of the dessert table was made using the "Happy Birthday" banner by Anna and Blue Paperie. I also made a few fabric flowers from vintage inspired kitchen towels and some remnant fabric using fabric stiffener (purchased at a local craft store) and a tutorial from Jones Design Company (http://jonesdesigncompany.com/flowers/gathered-flower-tutorial).
The rest of the dessert table came together with cupcakes, fresh strawberries and some amazing cookies by Callye of The Adventures of Sweet Sugarbelle. The birthday girl and her friends sipped lemonade and danced in tutus with her dance teacher. It was a perfect day!
