Airplane Guest Dessert Feature

Wow, there have been some great features up today, right?  This kid-friendly dessert feature from Jordan of Polka Dot Prints in Australia is another adorable take on a fly away party.  Jordan said she was inspired by my own son’s birthday party here.  I adore the white chocolate cloud “fly” lollipop sticks, the airplane cake {notice – simple waffle cones and m & m’s are used to decorate the cake}, the milk cartons, and the airplane painting.  The grass floor is also a nice touch.

A few sweet styling and practical tricks:

(1) Make use of lollipop sticks.  For the first several dessert tables I ever created, I placed chocolate lollipops and cookies in decorated boxes like Jordan did here.  I did it so many times that my friends expected them at any party I created.  It is easy to do {simply decorate styrofoam boxes or oasis and stick your chocolate pops and cookie pops in boxes with skewers}.  Kids and adults love them because they are easy to carry around.

(2) Be careful with dark colored food!  It’s always important to think of your guests’ teeth.  We had an event this past weekend and blue was a big color in the palette.  We all tested every dessert {poor us!} to make sure that there wasn’t any blue residue left on teeth.  You do want your guests looking pretty throughout the event!  I’m curious Jordan…did your blue treats turn out okay with this?  I’d be a bit worried with the blue jelly bars and trifle.  How did it turn out?

Jordan – you rocked this party and I look forward to seeing more from you!  Okay, one more feature left for today.  I hope you’re all enjoying the marathon!
