Milestone Birthday Dessert Table Ideas

22 Aug

My Mom just celebrated her 70th birthday with her family and closest friends.  She loves sweets and we decided to do a huge table full of her favorites to celebrate her milestone birthday (Since it was an outdoor party and the weather wasn’t cooperating, we quickly had to transfer everything to the garage). To make it even more fun, we added personalized touches to the table.  I put together photo collages as a backdrop for the table.  I used black foamboard and had pictures printed on cardstock so I didn’t damage the originals.  I attached them with clear glue.  I used a pink banner kit to add some fun to the boards.


We served her favorite ice cream in personalized stadium cups.  The cups featured a crown and said, “KEEP CALM … Susan is 70!”


Her friends and family could make their own ice cream sundaes with different syrups, whipped cream and of course nuts and cherries.


My aunt made an old fashioned doll cake to remind her of her childhood which was a big hit with her friends!

My brother brought one of her favorites, a tres leche cake with fresh mango and peaches.


So many choices for dessert!  We also had personalized napkins for the sweet table to add another personal touch and they complimented the personalized stadium cups.


Hope these ideas inspire you!
