Since it’s Nation Pie month (yum!) I thought I would re-share my Sweetie Pie Party that I styled for my daughter Hillary. This is a great theme for this time of year. Hillary is truly the sweetest, gentlest young lady you have ever meet so Sweetie Pie was the perfect them for her. I was so excited to find all kids of pie foods, desserts, crafts and activities to fit this theme. We choose a dark red and french blue color scheme which was incorporated into all of our printables, found here.
Our lunch room was decorated with lots of dark red paper lanterns and 17 inch round balloons which covered the floor. We covered the chairs with blue gingham fabric that matched the invite and the table was set with custom place mats and prepackaged lunches in gable boxes. At the “fillings” table, the girls stocked up on blueberries in mini jars, cherries, strawberries and sweet soda pop. They also had mini hand pies and berry pie slices served in gingham berry boxes. The cupcake toppers with gingham pattern and cherries topped a three tier cake stand.
After lunch the girls headed outside for the dessert table. I decided to make a canopy so that it looked like a little bakery stand. It was pretty easy to make with three pieces of wood per side for the uprights and wooden dowels to connect the two sides. Your lumber store can cut the wood to exact size so plan ahead. My mom is an amazing sewer, so she made the gingham cover. You could also find a bed sheet that works.
The dessert table was filled with everything pie, of course. A gingham 10 and mini fondant pie made by Edible Details topped the cake. Elizabeth from Lizy B’s Bakeshop made the most amazing pie sugar cookies. They were so realistic that people couldn’t even tell they were cookies. We had all types of mini individual pies- banana creme pie, chocolate smores pie, mini mason jars with a sweetie pie, peach and apple. We also had mini round hand pies with the letter H on them. Ala mode was served in ice cream cups.
During the party the girls decorated cupcakes (pie- the new cupcake), made mini strawberry pies and tossed their own pizza pies. They then went on a find the fillings hunt.
As always, our smash cake for this party was a strawberry pie.
Cutest guests ever!
