Today I'm sharing a dessert table that I put together for a birthday party in honor of on of my son Sam's BFFs. I don't plan parties, so when I get a chance to throw a dessert table into a friend's celebration, I always jump at the opportunity to do it. I used our Wild Child Collection -- Catherine's jungle themed collection that features an adorable lion.
These lion cupcake wrappers are actually my favorite item in the collection.
Ever trying to bring budget conscious styling into dessert tables, I used brown paper to create a vine and then cut leaves from our jungle themed tent cards.
I made these meringues. They were delicious. Just had to put that out there as I am not known to be someone who knows their way around a kitchen. :-)
I purchased the fondant toppers -- including the lion on the cake -- from Edible Details. Speaking of cakes, the one on this table is a butterscotch cake I purchased last minute at The Cake Box. I saw it when I went to get the cupcakes. It was one of the best tasting cakes I have had in a very long time. I still think about it. For real.
Stephanie is in love with a boy named Sam. He has taught her that it's okay to jump first and look later, to wear a dirty shirt to the park and to decide that today is a good day to take a nap in your rubber boots. She hangs out here blogging at Spaceships and Laser Beams and at our printable party shop on Etsy.
