Blame It On Rio Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids

Today we are traveling from the heat of the safari to the tropics of Carnival! This submission came to us from Belinda from Styled By Belle. She created this party for the birthday party of Australian photographer Lee Bird’s daughter. Lee’s daughter wanted a “Rio” themed party based on the movie. Belinda chose a bright color palette to give the party that tropical feel that Brazil is known for. A multi-colored ruffle tablecloth was used for the linen and bright paper fans became the focal point on the backdrop. Sweet treats included cupcakes, layered jelly pots decorated with paper umbrellas, multi-colored macaroons, mini fruit tarts, sugar cookies, bright cake pops, and lots of colored candy. Tropical fruit punch was served in cute yellow pineapple drink bottles. Belinda made tropical trees out of fresh pineapples and styled it using fresh fruit and hibiscus flowers. Great job. Scroll down for the vendor credits.
