What better way to pair your daughter's 2nd birthday with the Kentucky Derby races than with a full blown Derby Day party!! We had a blast working with Claire's mommy to put together this overall design that appealed to both the birthday girl and her guests as well as the adults.
The centerpiece to our desserts table was definitely this custom backdrop from Created by Jackie. The 3D, hand-cut wooden horse was adorned with felt roses and mounted on a large scale moss covered backdrop. We selected a sweet white buttercream cake and topped it with a horseshoe and fresh pink flowers. Pink rose buttercream cupcakes were displayed on this rustic 3 tiered stand custom created for this project. Horseshoe cookies in our party's colors were displayed neatly on 2 silver trays in front of the cake. For a pop of color, we hung this handmade paper rose garland in front of the table and chose a bright floral pattern for our paper plates.
