Cupcake Shoppe Party Details:This is what Justine said about planning the party- “Decor
This is a pink and teal cupcake shoppe themed first birthday for my neice Megan who is as cute as a cupcake! Megan’s mom and I worked together to create a beautiful space that featured a canopy style dessert table, a mini cupcake shoppe kid’s photobooth, a lemonade drink stand, a cupcake decorating station and an array of beautifully lined tables adorned with tiffany chairs for the adults. Oversized clear polka balloons, teal tissue pom poms, astro turf and chevron prints contributed to the overall whimsical feel of the party. Printables & backdrop were designed by Megan’s talented mom Vanessa.
The cupcake shoppe photobooth is an IKEA (SKYLTA) cardboard kids market stand that was transformed into Megan’s very own cupcake shoppe! Printables were designed by Megan’s mom and adhered into the cardboard market stand to give it a beautiful pink & teal look. This was definitely a hit at the party as every kid had their go at being shop keeper and enjoyed the role play! Baby washcloth cupcakes were used at the photobooth as props as well as custom labeled milk cartons
and mini cups.
Cupcake decorating Station
Instead of a traditional kids table, we opted to create a fun space for the kids to get involved in, so the party also featured a kids cupcake decorating station. We custom designed mini aprons which doubled up as chair covers for the decorating station. Kids went sprinkle crazy at the table with a variety of toppings and icing at their dispense. Plain cupcakes were lined with pink and teal chevron liners and displayed on Martha Stewart’s 3-tiered doily lace cupcake stand. Party hats were dollar shop hats that were transformed and decorated with teal fabric and flowers made out of mini cupcake liners.
I always love incorporating ideas which double up for purpose. In this party, we have used edible cupcake-in-a-jar favours as name placeholders for the adult tables. These gorgeous pink ombre cupcakes were baked by Xiao by Crustz and packaged into cute little jars styled by Pretty Little Vintage Melbourne. Kids went home with gable boxes filled with baking goodies which were personalised with custom designed printables and a thank you note from Megan!
Our canopy dessert table featured a variety of fun cupcake themed desserts baked by two talented ladies Xiao by Crustz and Crumbs Macarons. The birthday cake was a delicious 2-tiered vanilla lemon cake decorated in chevron patterned fondant and a giant cupcake topper. The dessert table also featured a variety of 3D cupcake cookie stacks (inspired by Sweet Sugar Belle’s tutorial), hand-piped cupcake shaped macarons, cupcake shaped iced cookies, cupcakes in a jar, cake
pops, and cute chocolate flower pots with oreo crumbs used as ‘soil’. The table also featured a selection of pink and teal colored candy displayed in adorable mini apothecary jars which guests helped themselves to at the end of the party to take home in chevron paper candy bags. It was certainly a fun afternoon filled with cake, cake and more cake”!
