Happy Friday! I am so delighted to share this extremely sweet Dress Up Birthday Party by Jennifer of Double the Fun Parties. I can’t imagine any girl not loving this party. I know all three of my girls would have been so happy to have this birthday celebration!. There are so many precious details. I love the jewelry display and the sugar cookies are perfection. Double the Fun Parties is a great source for party idea and activities.
I set up our dessert table in the center of the salon on a round table. The table was draped in a fuchsia pintuck tablecloth. Behind the table, I set up a folding screen as our backdrop. The dressing screen was in keeping with our dress-up theme and held the birthday girl’s initial in pink, glittery fabulousnesses.
choose desserts that were pink and had fashion or jewelry inspiration. Our cake was a vanilla ruffle cake, which I selected because the ruffle reminded me of dressmaker details. Budget tip: If your Target has a bakery, take them a photo of my cake and ask them if they can recreate it. My Target charged me $18 for this three-layer cake. I topped the cake with a wooden doll made to look like the birthday girl. Find the cake toppers at Sweetie Pie Cake Topper.
Chocolate cupcakes with the same pink frosting as the cake were topped with custom designed 3D fondant toppers from Edible Details. Little shoes, purses, and pearls – so cute! I stacked two cake stands to create a cupcake stand, and sadly it wasn’t tall enough to accommodate all of Brittany’s amazing toppers. Each purse and pair of shoes was different and stunning. I’ve kept them all. I’m thinking of putting them in a shadow box in my imaginary dream office.
In the lobby of the salon, I created a dining/activity table at a coffee table. The girls sat on floor pillows. From a turquoise chandelier above the table, I hung pink tissue poms. Our centerpiece was a pink, dress form-style jewelry holder that displayed one of our finished craft projects. And I couldn’t resist adding a “Tiffany” box with a bling ring to each place setting.
