I love the outdoors and always admire the natural beauty of flowers and trees. When I saw this tree blooming, I knew it would be the perfect backdrop for a garden themed party. The freshly cut flowers from my garden accented the table perfectly, and the tree created a beautiful "confetti" across the grass with the newly fallen petals.
The setting was captured by the very talented Jennifer, from Priceless Studios Photography. She did an amazing job photographing the table and all the small details throughout.
I love a soft pink used with white, but I also wanted to add some contrast with pops of hot pink and lime green. This turned out to be the perfect way to make the table stand out against the more natural backdrop.
Being in a garden setting, I wanted the table to be surrounded by butterflies. Real butterflies, of course, can't be guaranteed, so I went with the next best thing. ;) I placed die-cuts from Elite Paperie in fun places to make it appear as if butterflies actually landed on the table.
Cupcakes were used for this small party, but I still wanted to create a way to have the appearance of a large cake. I came up with this unique tiered pedestal, and then wrapped it in ribbon and surrounded it with more freshly cut flowers.
I was also set on the idea of having lollipop flowers because I think they're amazingly cute. I painted the pots to match the table, and this lollipop display turned out to be one of my favorite parts of the table!
One of my other favorite things on the table were the Rice Krispie treats that I cut out using flower and butterfly cookie cutters, and decorated with jelly beans. Placed inside treat bags with a topper on them, they're the perfect treats to take home at the end of party!
