Goldilocks & Three Bears Guest Dessert Feature

We’re seeing a lot of classic nursery tale themed parties popping up in our inbox lately.  This Goldilocks and The Three Bears party guest feature from Paula of Frog Prince Paperie is “Just Right” as the famous author Robert Southey once wrote.  Guests were invited to the party with a Goldilocks board book and “Bear Mail” bookplate/invitation.  Paula created a bear house vibe for the birthday party.  She used a painted bead board as a backdrop with silhouettes of mama bear, papa bear and baby bear. She used tiny dollhouse chairs to display desserts that might find their way into a bear celebration: baked porridge topped with maple frosting and cinnamon, marzipan acorns, honey cupcakes, chocolate covered bear pops, and bear sugar cookies.  The kids ate all their goodies at a four-poster twin bed that was converted into a kid-sized table {how fun!}  Paula created a snack bar for the kids with berries (candy), mushrooms (cracker sticks with mushroom tops), twigs (pretzel sticks) and brown teddy bear grahams.  Party favors were porcelain bowls and wooden spoons personalized with each child’s name and a small teddy bear nestled in the bowl.  Fantastic job, Paula!

    This is really well done, clean lines, great ideas but not too many, which makes for genius, great use of colour, I suppose you didn’t repaint the walls so great choice to use the blue and enhance it. The framed silhouettes are brilliant. The bed, everything, really well done it is very inspiring. Are the blocks boxes or cakes?
