Let’s Fly Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids
This simple yet stylish dessert table was styled by Jayme from Jayme Marie Designs for her son’s vintage airplane birthday party. We love the chic black table against the red and aqua palette. Notice how the white on the vertical runner, cake, wall and beverages give the design a crisp look. It’s a major player in the design. We love the use of stripes as well. Sweet treats on the dessert table included chocolate and…

She incorporated the blue and white color scheme and line drawing to the cake elements. How fun are those sugar “oyster” cookies?

Nautical Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids
We love this nautical party and dessert table that Rachel of Sol and Rachel created for her son. Rachel created a menu that consisted of sailboat shaped sandwiches, blue jello cups with apple slice sailboats {we love!}, chocolate dipped pretzel oars, goldfish crackers, and little plastic boats filled with fruit. Guests spent time playing in the SS Finley, which Rachel’s husband crafted from a huge cardboad box. The printables by RV Parties tied the whole…

Rustic Silhouette Guest Dessert Feature

This nautical guest dessert table came to us Monika from Stylish Party Bazaar in the UK. She created this table for a wedding show.

We love this nautical baby shower from Amy of One Divine Party.

The Love Boat Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids
Our last Valentine’s Day post of the day is from Ebony at Sparkling Events & Designs.  She sent us her version of “The Love Boat”.  I don’t know about you, but I loved watching The Love Boat as a kid.

A Pirate’s Life Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids
This pirate themed party almost threw us overboard! Johanna from Mums Little Party Secret sent us these photos from her son Morgan’s birthday. She and her husband decorated and constructed that pirate ship by hand (amazing!). Johanna also created the cupcakes and cake. After months of construction, the day finally arrived for Capt’n Morgan III’s maiden voyage. Johanna and here husband were fearful of housing the ship outside as storms were predicted. They made the…

Nautical Guest Dessert Feature

We received this nautical themed submission from Louisa and Melissa at The Little Big Company in Australia. She created this party for a client whose husband was turning 60. The party was a surprise and they only had one week to put it together. They wanted the table to have a very masculine feel so they went with blue, black and yellow as the color palette. Their client had mentioned that her husband wanted to…
