Baby Elephant Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids

We received this featured submission from Tanya at Life’s Little Celebrations in Australia.  She styled this party for her daughter’s first birthday. Her daughter received a lot of elephant items when she was born so Tanya wanted to have an Elephant themed party. She started with the cute elephant printables that she found on Style me Gorgeous. She used a color palette of pink, grey and light aqua blue. The cake with an elephant figurine was made by Cake Avenue. Other sweet treats included macarons, elephant cookies, pink sugared peanuts and Persian fairy floss. Since it was a celebration of her daughter’s first year, she used dessert tags representing milestones for her year, such as “Crawling cookies” and “Sitting up Swizzle sticks”. Roses were added to pay homage to her middle name, Rose. An “Elephant Watering Hole” was set up with cute mini bottles, straws and elephant tags. Guests were treated with a handmade cupcake as well as the Golden Book “The Saggy Baggy Elephant”. Trot on down to the bottom to see the vendor credits.

    TOO MUCH cuteness to handle! Love the soft color palettes.

    The details on the glass bottles are too cute – are they upside down cupcake wrappers? so clever!

    I just love animals! And another news… I just found out that Manila Zoo has a cute elephant named Mali, and she is the only elephant in the Philippines! She has lived there for almost all of her lives, for more than 30 years. The zoo should feel like her sweet and cozy home now. But then, I read some articles in, and I noticed that Mali is in fact sad and lonely! Look at her here: She is like a prisoner, who cannot spend her days with her friends, roam in vast territories, and have delicious adequate food! She even suffers from foot problems. Why does she deserve this? 🙁 Please Help Her!
