{CELEBRATE} Chloe's Cowgirl Princess Birthday Party!

I was recently hired to design and style this FUN Cowgirl Princess themed Dessert Display! 
I absolutely love party planning and the dessert tables are always my favorite part to work on. 
You can see more examples of my work {HERE}.

To celebrate Chloe's 5th Birthday, her mother was planning a Cowgirl party using pinks and brown and also wanted to incorporate princess elements. To princess-things-up I added touches of gold, a few sparkles and a little glitter throughout the display. It definitely added a GLAM element to the shabby-chic theme.

The Birthday Girl's mother is quite the party planner herself and had found the PERFECT location to hold this party. The Timber Dome Lodge in Solon is such a neat space...and it was the sweetest setting for a little Cowgirl to celebrate her BIG day!

 RV Parties created these adorable Cowgirl Printables that were just perfect for Chloe's display! They have an entire package designed around this theme! 

I love using custom party printables in my displays because they're such a fun way to add those personal touches.  I definitely get the most use out of the 2-inch cupcake toppers because they can be incorporated into many different treats.

Another amazing creation from Jaclyn of Peckled! She made the adorable Pinwheel Banner for my daughter's Golden Birthday {HERE}and I knew her work would be perfect for this display as well. I asked her to add ribbon "tails" to the pinwheels so they would look like show ribbons. She, of course, took it to another level...each of the pinwheels was glittery and sparkled and it was more than I could have hoped for!

The Chocolate Horse Lollipops were created using molds and paper straws as sticks.  
 I created these sweet lettered Cake Pops and the Cowgirl Hat Cake Pops (in the back row).
They looked super sweet displayed in mini bales of hay!

 No dessert table is complete with a dish of nostalgic salt water taffy.
I used vintage milk glass serving pieces from my personal collection throughout the table.

A sweet gilded horse graced the table along with a pair of decorative spurs!

Vintage crocheted doilies were used throughout the dessert table. 
I love the texture that they add, so simple and sweet.
 I created these fun paisley patterned Cake Pops on paper straw "sticks" from Green Party Goods. 

A Cookie Family created the custom decorated sugar cookies and they were absolutely perfect! I am always amazed by the sweet talent of other decorators and Amber is a true artist. 
I gave her the colors, theme and a few inspiration photos and she took it from there!

Seriously...too cute to eat...almost :)
They tasted just as sweet as they looked!

 For a more rustic look, I used wooden rock candy sticks to dip some of the Cake Pops. 
I just loved how they turned out!
Arrangments of miniature roses, Baby's Breath and Peonies were spaced throughout the display in vintage milk glass vases.

I always consider it such an honor to be involved in such special moments in my clients' lives.
The desserts, the decorations, the display, the styling...ALL of that is really for ONE thing...
creating MEMORIES!
This job is a privilege and I feel blessed to be a part of these amazing celebrations.
