This is Juicy! I styled this Feeling Fruity- This is Juicy Party for my daughter’s 12th birthday party last summer. I wanted the party to be happy, fresh and bright. She has always loved having lemonade stands so this party is a twist on that. All of the decor, color scheme, invitations, food and crafts revolved around four fruit slices- lemon, kiwi, watermelon and orange. Lots of honeycomb balls and garland made from the fruit slices helped set the mood. The focal point of the party was a juice stand that I made for the desserts by wrapping the front of a regular white table with a banner and adding posts to the sides and pompoms across the top.
The juice stand was filled with lots of desserts that fit our theme including pink lemonade cupcakes topped with fondant lemon slices, watermelon donuts and watermelon macarons that I added black seeds to with an edible marker, fruit slices sugar cookies, bottles of lemonade topped with paper watermelon circles and in the center of the table an extra tall birthday cake. The fondant toppers for the cake made by Edible Details matched our printables.
The girls ate at a table with a honeycomb and pom pom runner in pink, orange, yellow and mint. They each had custom utensil bags, juice bottles and a watermelon plate that I made by adding cut out seed to plain pink paper plates.
During the party the girls snacked on treats from the One in A Melon table and did lots of fun crafts. They made fruit baskets, citrus sugar scrub, lip balm in all of our party flavors and fruity paper fortunes. For party favors, the girls filled bags with sweets from the candy table.
My favorite element was the smash cake. I have made smash cakes for each of my children’s birthdays every year since they were one. It is a tradition they really look look forward to. The one for this party was a four layered cake in, you guessed it, in kiwi, watermelon, lemon and orange covered with buttercream and Fruity Pebbles.
