Cute As A Button Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids

Today’s cute-as-a-button submission was created by Dawn for her daughter Ruby’s fifth birthday. Sometimes the simplest ideas yield the prettiest results, as you see here with buttons and bows. Dawn chose demure shades of pale pink and baby blue to make dozens of sugar buttons. The buttons cascaded down the side of Ruby’s two-tiered birthday cake and were also used to top cupcakes. Dawn also used the buttons to adorn a plate of cookies that were made by a local baker. To extend the button theme, the girls made button bracelets as a party activity. We love Dawn’s decision to use the vintage white hutch to display all of the sweet, girly deserts. For another cute as a button party, click here.
