Dream Catcher Party

We’re loving this dream catcher party and dessert table sent to us by Julie Harvey. Julie created this sweet party and dessert table for her daughter Tahlia’s 11th birthday party. This year was Tahlia’s last year of primary school in Brisbane and Tahlia’s friends are going to different high schools in the fall. Since these young ladies have all of their hopes and dreams ahead of them, Julie wanted to create a special party for Tahlia and her friends. Lucky ladies! The mint, peach and gold color palette is so pretty. Julie did all of the styling and made a buttercream cake, chocolate cupcakes, and vanilla cake pops for the dessert table. Other sweet treats included salted caramel and peach macarons, truffles, and custom wrapped chocolate bars. The girls drank peach lemonade and water in mason jars tied with twine and feathers and spent time crafting their own dream catchers during the party. A dream of a party! Scroll down for the beautiful photos, fun fact and vendor credits.

Fun Fact: The notion of a dream catcher is that it can catch your dreams in its web, allowing good dreams to slip through the center hole while bad dreams get caught in the web to perish. History suggests that dream catchers first originated with the Ojibwe people. Their Spider Woman named Asibikaashi caught all of the good dreams for the children of her land. When the Ojibwe people spread to different areas in North America, she directed mothers to weave dream catchers for their children so that their bad dreams would perish.
