Modern Americana, 4th of July Inspired Table

By  | Last Updated:  

Two of our own dessert tables featured in one week on our own blog. It’s a record! We wanted to do a dessert table that could be used for an easy summer boy’s birthday party, particularly a first birthday. Using the 4th of July as our influence (the wool flowers look like sparklers, use of pie, cherries, red white and blue and repetition of stars), we developed what we are calling a “Modern Americana” dessert table using Nicole’s childhood toy collection. Catherine ofGoodness Bakeshop fame supplied the vegan baked goods. We’re always trying to prove that boy friendly style can be easy, accessible and affordable, so the best part of all is that this table was done for under $100.

The blackberry cupcakes and pies in a jar (mixed berry) are from Goodness Bakeshop

These were pie “fries.” Twisted pieces of leftover pie dough sprinkled in sugar. We had a strawberry preserve on the side for dipping, like ketchup. It was actually quite a fun and tasty way to eat “pie.”

Here’s a close-up of Catherine‘s blueberry cake. We got the idea for the icing design here.

And this is a close-up of her lemon blackberry cake. Also delicious. (I can’t even explain the commotion in the house trying to get these sparklers lit and photographed, haha)

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.
