Party Recap

I grew up loving “The Golden Egg Book” by Margaret Wise Brown. It has all the things I’m fond of- a jewel toned color palette, a vintage vibe and an adorable story about 2 unlikely animals becoming friends, how could I NOT put together a Spring shoot based on this adorable little book? Hannah of Hannah’s Cookies and Treats and I decided to combine our talents and put together this lovely little dessert table with the wonderful Christina of Moments Captured Photography behind the camera photographing her daughter Julie and her 3 friends having fun stuffing themselves with some sweet treats! For the décor I thought a pennant flag banner for the front of the table made of actual “The Golden Egg Book” pages was a must have. I love the way it themes the table right away. I came across the glitter eggs and the large golden egg both at Target and fell in love- they were a perfect fit with the coloring of the book. Another easy (and inexpensive) décor idea I used were the paper doilies to create the scalloped look on the awning. Making the silverware bags for the girls was a fun and quick little project. The cute paper baggies included their napkin, a jumbo paper straw, glitter fork and a cute felt decoration clipped to the front. I live for little details like these! They turned out super cute and made everyday party items a bit more special. We wanted to keep all the desserts as themed to the book as possible which was a fun little challenge for us both. We had Garden Carrots in Push Pops (brownies with sugar filled carrots), Tulip Cakes drizzled with melting chocolates and topped in sugar (made from Little Debbie Tulip Cakes- a no bake idea everyone can make!) and plenty of character based cookies as well as Hannah's beautiful egg cookies that were almost too pretty to eat! Our cake pops were tied with frilly and fun ribbons and our Peanut Butter Nests made out of chow mein noodles (SO easy!) were a total hit with the girls (and their moms!) Other desserts included chocolate dipped grahams (perfect for kids!), mini cupcakes, peeps, different sizes of robin eggs and don’t let me forget the cups of cotton candy which were the hit of the table- go figure!
