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!

DIY: Emoji Cupcakes & Win a Personalized Emoji Party!

27 Jun

blog-emoji-cupcakeHopefully you’ve had a chance to make our homemade cocoa Emoji meringue cookies.  Now we want to share how we made our DIY Emoji cupcakes for our Emoji Birthday Party.  We simply made chocolate cupcakes and let them cool.  Once cooled, you’ll need the following:

Once cooled, level cupcakes with a knife so the tops are flat.  Spread a thin layer of frosting on the cupcakes.  Roll out the fondant according to directions.  Once rolled out, use a small cup or circle cookie cutter that is the size of the cupcake.  Make as many circles as needed as there are cupcakes.  Using the foodwriter markers, decorate each circle with Emoji faces.  Use Emoji images from your smartphone for inspiration.  Once decorated, lay the fondant on top of the cupcake and gently press the edges onto the cupcake.  Store in a plastic container once finished.  Serve within 2 days or the colors may bleed and the fondant can get hard.

Emoji cupcakes are a big hit from little kids to big kids!  Just add some personalized emoji products from The Stationery Studio and your Emoji party will be a big success! And don’t forget to enter our Emoji Party Sweepstakes for a chance to win a personalized emoji party package worth up to $350 from The Stationery Studio and Wilton!  Hurry … you need to enter by June 29, 2016.  Winners will be announced Friday, July 1, 2016.
