Dessert Table for Baby’s 1st Birthday

The Perfect Dessert Table with MINTED and Fashionable HostessCupcake and Treats by Minted on Fashionable Hostess2Treats and ForksDessert and Candy Bar by Fashionable Hostess copy

Recently a girlfriend of mine came to me and asked for helping planning her son’s first birthday party. I have always admired the long dessert buffet tables I have seen on Pinterest, so when I brought up the concept to her, she couldn’t wait to get started on the idea. We decided the easiest way to go about planning would be to find a package of party supplies rather than a few things here and there. We fell in love with this adorable “Let’s get this Party Started” set on Minted {the beloved stationary website!} which had everything from banners, centerpieces, table signs and more. Then after browsing the site we learned they had the big display items like cake stands and apothecary jars – it was the perfect one stop shop! Now that we had our color palette we were ready to start working out the details.

We started by laying down a Snow Dot Gold and White Table Runner across our table {love that it is paper – who wants to worry about mess with the kids!}. Next we placed our big centerpieces, a large trophy apothecary vase, a bubble apothecary vase, and a large white cake stand down the center. We wanted the whole theme to stick with this soft sea of baby blues so it was time to be on the hunt for pretty blue treats.

A lover of Sugarfina candy, a gourmet candy company based out of Beverly Hills, I custom ordered Princess Pearls in blue and white, Sugarfina Pearls in blue and white, and Chocolate Sparkles in blue {they can custom create anything here and it’s the classy candy with a beautiful shimmer – not like the ones you find at the grocery}. We filled the apothecary vases to the tip top and then placed little party cups from Marshalls right in front for serving. Then if you remember back to Holiday time, I did a popcorn bar on the blog, which was such a hit, so I thought that would be cute todo again, mixing pretty white popcorn with the Sugarfina candies and blue sprinkles. We pre-made the mixes in Always Lou Popcorn Boxes and held steady in a white tray. On the white cake stand we bought mini cupcakes {I always recommend mini’s at kids birthday parties!!} from Gigi’s Cupcakes in Nashville and placed wooden utensils and the Minted “Treats” sign right alongside the section.

The Minted set came with a “Sips” label, so we decided to serve glasses of fresh squeezed lemonade topped off with fun party straws, the perfect summer time party drink. The cutest final touch was that the Minted set came with a set of DIY party crowns {in a mix of colors and prints!}. We assembled a few of the blue ones for added decor on the table, but then left a bunch of the colorful ones out for the kids to do on their own come party time!
