If you’’ve ever wandered deep into the woods and seen the moss and pinecones on the forest floor, you’’ll recognize the parallels with this gorgeous woodland inspired dessert table. Megan has captured many striking details and I love how each beautiful element encourages closer examination.

Every dessert was handmade and presented to evoke a woodland feel. Whimsical toad stool cupcakes and macarons in complementary party shades are elevated on stacked tree rounds. Toffee apples with twig handles are a splendid choice! Truffle pops in a handmade, wooden stand, promise to delight. Fruit adds a colorful, healthy option and pairs well with the fresh outdoor theme. Sweet vignettes of moss-filled glasses, miniature toadstools, pinecones and forest creatures heightened the enchanted woodland vibe.  The darling stuffed fox and raccoon were perfect accents to the impressive dessert table.

Beverages are displayed beautifully on a white, linen draped table.  Glass bottles accented with pretty mint and red paper straws beckon to thirsty guests.

Wooden utensils, bundled with striped twine, are an excellent option for this party theme; they’’re a great coupling with red and white polka-dot plates and the striped straws in glass beverage bottles. A natural burlap runner pulls everything together on the adult’’s table.

Children enjoy their own picnic spots, with miniature tables topped with faux grass and giant pine cones.

Gossamer fabric, twinkling lights, and paper fans hang from exposed beams to add to the party magic as the celebration continued into the evening.

What a wonderful first birthday celebration!
