Kate's 4th birthday party was her fairytale come true!! Her request....a Belle party. So, we delivered! With the recent release of the 25th anniversary edition of Beauty & The Beast, timing couldn't have been more perfect to play with this theme!! And, for those of us who remember the original movie release, it was super fun to reminisce.

One of my favorite themes for Fall birthdays is the Lil Pumpkin, especially for 1st birthdays!!
When designing this party concept, we wanted to focus on traditional fall elements, namely pumpkins, rustic materials such as burlap, hay bales, dark woods and mason jars. The highlight of our dessert table was most certainly these putting pumpkin standees. For depth and contrast, we chose a chalkboard patterned paper roll as the base of our table's backdrop.
For softness and height, we anchored a 36” white latex balloons accented with boxwood garland on either side of the dessert table.
Drawing the eye downward, we used standard burlap linens dressed up with a fun, lit mason jar garland. We also used a large hay bale as a prop for one of our pumpkin standees. While we certainly love all of the sweet treats on a party’s dessert table, we also feel it is important to consider all aspects of the design, including above the table and below the table for the best overall look.
Our centerpiece dessert was this amazing, 3 layer pumpkin naked cake. While I am the first to vote for decorated cakes, sometimes the simplest options are the best choices for creating an overall design look. This cake not only looked perfect, it tasted amazing!!
For the birthday boy, we displayed a single pumpkin theme birthday party hat on an orange cake pedestal for the big photo op blowing out the candle.
For dessert variety, we displayed simple vanilla buttercream cupcakes topped with a single pumpkin candy on top of custom wooden risers. These risers are so versatile, giving just enough table height to distinguish a dessert without competing with other design elements.
Dessert was served on Little Pumpkin dessert plates paired with orange stamped wooden forks that were simply displayed in a single Ball glass jar.
One of my favorite things about a pumpkin theme birthday party is that you can often reuse décor elements in your own home’s fall decorating. The pumpkin standees would be perfect for dressing up a fall fireplace or even outside under a covered porch.
Happy Fall Ya'll!!

Happy Almost Halloween!! Well, with 3 small children in our home, our Halloween decorations are definitely not ‘scary’…they are super-duper cute!
For this year’s Halloween party, I pulled inspiration from a modern black and white color palette with a few pops of orange. The highlight of the party was most definitely the ghost standees. The ghosts were used in front of our table for height and then we used the coordinating bats on the backdrop.
The backdrop itself was covered in a black& white star print paper roll. For fun, we dressed the backdrop up with 12” mylar letter balloons, spelling “Spooky”. To pull the metallic through the design, we added this wavy foil silver table skirt overtop of a white base linen.
The focal point of our dessert table was this DIY ghost cake. To recreate, all you need is a simple store bought white iced cake, a bag of Oreo cookies and brown M&M candy. Simply add Oreo cookies in pairs of two using a small dab of buttercream icing when adhering; then add another dab of icing and an M&M candy. Voila! For fun, we set out this simple DIY “Boo” frame in front of our ghost cake.
We served our delicious holiday treats on these fun Eat, Drink & Be Scary paper plates alongside orange paper napkins dressed up with these too-fun bling spider napkin holders. Spooky punch was served in these simple black and white spider web paper cups.
We dressed up store bought cupcakes with these personalized “Happy Halloween” cupcake wrappers and spider ring toppers.
For other treats on the table, and for a pop of Halloween orange, we added spider web bags filled with orange gumballs and orange rock candy displayed in a simple glass vase. To accent each of our serving pieces, we placed these paper spider web chargers underneath.
While our Halloween party may not have been scary, it was definitely “Spooktacularly Cute!”
