The red, blue and white party décor looks absolutely fantastic, but Carol’s attention to detail is what made it come alive.
The blue backdrop and red-and-white striped table is reminiscent of Great Britain’s flag and the nearby favor table was disguised as an iconic red, double-decker London bus — what fun!
The suggestion of a colorful telephone booth added to the scene, too.
Balloons always contribute a celebratory note, but Carol took the balloons a step further by having GloboArte create a lamp post and a larger-than-life British guard to watch over the main table.
The quintessential little London guard was the inspiration for the cake topper and he also appeared on the dessert table banner and the water bottle labels (Did you notice the straws with stars? Super cute!).
All desserts and candy were labeled with stationery so guests could decide which delicacies to try.
The dessert table carried everything to satisfy a sweet tooth: mini trifles, lemon cookie biscuits, French macarons, red, white and blue striped Jello cups, cupcakes, cake pops, sugar cookies and candies.
The cupcake topper images, cake-pops and cookies coordinated perfectly.
Attaching spoons to the dessert cups with washi tape or even popping a spoon right into the dessert cup is a thoughtful touch to save guests from searching for utensils.
Carol found a selection of tea tins to coordinate with the theme and used them for serving candy and for table centerpieces.
Each table held unique arrangements that featured flowers, picture frames, and boxes or tins to carry the celebratory vibe throughout the party zone.
An abundant dessert table and a charming venue thoughtfully prepared would surely make any birthday boy and his guests feel like royalty!
