Pinpointing what we love most about this party is tough. Every detail is fabulous and perfectly executed. We love the simplicity of the backdrop: blue sky, accented with white paper clouds and a pretty pastel blue kite. Below, a faux grass table covering gives way to an array of treats and sweets, each adorably labeled with cloud-shaped food labels.
I’m a fan of food coordinating with the theme. Tracey did not disappoint. Apothecary jars were filled with cloud-shaped marshmallows. Kite cookie pops were bolstered in a small patch of faux grass with a white picket fence—what an adorable display.
An elegant cake was created in shades of blue with a simple silhouette of a kid flying their kite. Such a precious scene to be recreated on a cake. The cake was finished off with a #1 topper. The cutest cupcakes were served in striped liners and topped with darling fondant kites. Candy jars were filled with color-coordinating candies. Can there ever be enough?
Rows of donuts and kite-embellished candy bars were just a couple of the sweet additions to the dessert table. We just love the #1 on each little kite—such a fun personalization.
Blue Jell-O, miniature cups of caramel corn, meringues, and puffs of cotton candy were additional tempting treats.
Glass bottles showcase blue soda and festive striped straws. Perfect! Guests enjoyed decorating their own kites prior to moving outside to fly them. Sounds like a perfect way to celebrate a girl or boy’s first birthday!
