{Event Recap} Alexa's Candy Shoppe 1st Birthday

Candy and ice cream reigned supreme at Alexa's 1st birthday party. I had so much fun working with her mommy to design a scrumptious dessert table for her big day. I was given a palette of different shades of pink and a bright blue and threw in some splashes of red for contrast.

There are so many little details on this table that I loved putting together. The gumball machine was a DIY project I got from Kara's Party Ideas. I decided to create a bigger version of her mini gumball machines for the table and spray painted it blue instead of the standard red.

The treats included: red vines, pink and white marshmallows, gumballs, M&M's, pink and white meringues, sixlets, candy bracelets, rock candy, standard cake pops and ice cream cone shaped cake pops (made by my client!), lollipops, custom sugar cookies by Fairytale Frosting, and custom cake decor by Parker's Flour Patch which decorated a simple two tiered homemade cake. I suggested using a cupcake for the cake topper and my client found a special cupcake pan to make a larger and more decorative cupcake for the design!

Ice cream was also served with the cake so I created a topping section for the dessert table where guests could choose between chopped nuts, white chocolate chips, mini chocolate chips, crushed Oreos, and shredded coconut.
