Its official I am the Mommy of a 4 year old!



This was my very first dessert table. I was very happy with how it turned out. There are a few things I will do different next time, make sure table cloth is ironed, the table is the right size, and location is better for pictures {the back lighting was not good}.

But I have a feeling I will soon have my chance at another table! Oh and 6 months until I get to work on Bean's party. Do you think it is weird I already know what the theme is going to be?! Think paper and lots of it!














{images are courtesy of my Uncle and friend Jenni, thank you both!}

I would like to give a HUGE thank you to Kim from TomKat Studios for coming up with all the labeling for my table {stay tuned for a giveaway from TomKat!}
If you have any questions about my table please ask away.

I would love to share Buggies party. If you would like to blog about it please feel free, I would just ask that you let me know so that I can give you a proper thanks!

Wow! You did a wonderful job!! I don't think it is weird that you know the theme for your son's party! My girl is turning 2 in June and I already ordered an outfit for the party! Our theme is cupcakes! I don't think ours will be as great as yours. I bet all the kids were so excited! What fun!

Super cute! I love the rainbow theme. I've been thinking of a rainbow color scheme for a Arts & crafts themed party for my 6 year old's next birthday (which isn't until March '11). So, no you're not the only crazy mommy! The pom poms and rainbow balloons really add to your table display, and that cake is adorable!! Great job!

The pompoms - did you make them yourself? I followed martha stewart's tutorial on how to make them, but they turned out way TOO big - I was wondering what dimension tissue paper you used? Thanks!

Yours is my new favorite blog! I'm planning a unicorns and rainbows party for my daughter in september, so I'm loving the ideas. It's funny because I was already planning a rainbow-dressed clothespin girl for on top of the cake (though I'm still tossing around other ideas).

Great job!

Jennifer said...

This is the most beautiful party I have ever seen! I am having a Wizard of Oz party for my daughter's 4th birthday. I am going to incorporate some of your rainbow ideas. GREAT JOB!!!

Megan said...

I just wanted to thank you for sharing your rainbow party ideas and inspiring me so much while planning my own. I totally copied your idea for the tissue paper pom poms (and gave you due credit, of course!) and they look so beautiful! Thanks again!

Amanda said...

What a fabulous party - we are having a rainbow party for my 4 year old on Sunday so I was so excited to run across your blog vie Tomkat studio - you have fabulous ideas! Just wondering how you did the oreos - is that almond bark? How did you color it?
