We love the use of wooden slabs to display the cookie treats on! Beverages were served in classic glass bottles with personalized labels. The striped straws offer a beautiful pop of color.

We love the custom signs as well which ties back to both Pinocchio and Leo. They are also a great way to have a keepsake to treasure forever. Favors are presented in unique paper bags that look just like Pinocchio’s outfit. The bags contain healthy treats and craft items for guests to enjoy later. The red, metal birdcage is also a great touch — simple, yet effective in reminding us of the theme.

Little touches like quotes from the story add special touches for guests to enjoy. Custom paper goods including invitations, food labels, and bottle tags come from Lori at Lajari.

But the real stars of the food are the “Pinocopops” which are delicious cake pops decorated to look like Pinocchio himself. Finally, the cake! It’s a white chocolate mud cake with real raspberries. The bright colors on each tier are perfect for the theme. Pinocchio sits on top. We love how detailed his little wooden joints are.
