Hi — coming to you from the beach today! I’m excited to welcome a few fabulous guests to the blog this week, so I can take a mini-creative break to play with the girls, finish writing my Country Music Awards Party Plan, and get caught up on Marie Forleo’s B-School. (‘Cause basically, I have a little trouble with the whole “vacation” concept.) Here today is Jenny from Bloom Designs Online with her Daisies & Donuts Party. I think you’re going to love how she repeats three colors and one motif throughout the party to create a charming and consistent presentation.
Hi! Jenny here!
I styled this Daisies and Donuts party for the daughter of my dear friend, Annie. Her daughter, Monica, wanted a “white” party for for her birthday, but Annie want to make sure it was girlie, pretty and soft. Daisies immediately came to mind. I quickly recalled a daisies and donut party that Kristyn from Lil Luna used for her daughter’s birthday and after a quick email to Kristyn asking to borrow her theme, this party quickly came together.
For the backdrop of the dessert table, I made a giant “M” out of wire and attached die-cut daisies. Treats included a two tiered cake, daisy cake in mason jars, daisy popsicles made with frozen yogurt, cake pops, blackberry cupcakes, petal parfaits, daisy cookies on sticks and of course lots of donuts.
Inspiration for the gumball tubes with a daisy on top came from Darcy Miller of Martha Stewart Living. I also filled a big cylinder jar with the gumballs in a daisy shapes. (It actually takes much less time than you think but is well worth the effort.)
For the tables I made centerpieces out of donut holes, the die-cut daisies and paper straws. The kids did some dancing with a local singing teacher, went “dough” nuts at the play dough table and made daisy chains. Guests took home a daisy craft with a tag that thanked them for watching Monica grow.
For the printables, I used blue violet and white with pops of pink. The Daisies and Donuts invitation is available here and the Complete Party Kit which includes everything from banners to food labels, straw flags, thank you tags and more is available here. Gumball tubes, straws and wooden spoons are available in my shoppe.
Thanks, Jenny, for sharing your party with us!
