Kara's Party Ideas Love Letters Dessert Table + Husband Birthday Heart Party | Kara's Party Ideas

How perfect is this LOVE LETTERS DESSERT TABLE / HUSBAND BIRTHDAY PARTY submitted by Shevi of Little Wish Cakes?! Shevi styled this party for her husbands birthday! Such a sweet message.

Shevi said- “This is a table i put together with a lot of love for my husband (who will be celebrating his 39th in a few days). He is also leaving on a short trip (work related). Since moving to Australia, this is the first time, he is going to be away. As much as we are happy for his progress it does sadden me and my kids.

When we were first dating 15 years ago, being young and from very conservative backgrounds we were not allowed to date. Our only consolations were the letters that we wrote each other. Then after we got engaged again he had to leave for a year to another country and guess what got us through – “Love Letters”. Now as he gets ready to embark on his next adventure, I thought the best theme would be ‘Love Letters” for the table I was putting together for his birthday. He also loves the colour red!

My main aim was to create something beautiful that would not cost much. Therefore most of the details and decorations are handmade. The back drop is made out of paper serviettes scrunched and glued in the shape of a heart on a hessian covered board. I used old books from the op shop for the heart cut-out on the streamers, for the tray liners, around the cake and on the name tags. I used coir – a type of natural fibre to wrap around tin buckets which were used as flowers pots. Brown paper was used as backing paper in the picture frame trays.

The cookies were in the shape of envelops – sealed with a kiss. And the cupcakes had little love messages written on them.”
