I had the most amazing time planning and throwing this party!!! And like any parent my focus was to achieve more visual appeal with little effort! I simply hate the stress and how the moments which are actually meant for you and your little one are lost in cakes and cookies and cake pops!

I am not willing to pay that price! But I am not looking to question or sacrifice the aesthetics! So I was left with the hardest task of all. To find the fine balance!!!!

On the dessert table my favorite was the cupcakes adorned with cutest 2 min flag I glued to the stick and plop there you go!

And whats a cars party without some repair!!!! πŸ˜€ I set up this cute donut repair station!! Not that they needed any! So kids went creative and some did cupcakes and some just helped themselves to the repairing stuff!! πŸ˜€

hey no rules!

Here is how I did it:

5 Ingredient Dessert table

  1. The Cake: I opted for a 3D cake! I saved some bucks and did it myself!! You can either go for a custom cake or simple butter frosting cake with some cute cake toppers!! If you are going for a simpler less demanding cake you need to set them on the pedastel so they shine! a.k.a the cake stand!

  2. The Cupcakes: Evvvvvery dessert table needs cupcakes!! Coz evvvvvvvveryone loves the!! So some eaaasy chocolate frosting and some easy cupcakes recipe! If you want to take the simpler road just use the same batter for your cake, and if you are not baking the cake you can buy some packadged ones and dress them up in your frosting!!

  3. The decor:I set up a Decorating table!!! Kids aaaddddddore decorating their cupcakes!!! They looooooove the decorating! So i just popped in some mnms some sprinkles and donuts!!! To decorate!!!

  4. The star: Add some fun! The star of this table was this Nutella Freak Shakes!!! Eveery one just grabbbbbbed them!! As soon as they could and they were a suuuper hit!!!

  5. The munchies: Pre packaged cookies for munching!!!How awesome is that!! And oreos fit right into my theme!!! Who can say no to them!?

So there you go! 5 ingredient dessert table!

I have to say it was a gorgeous evening!!!! With family and food and games and fun and looooots of laughter! Exactly how Β a party should be!! :):) Minus all the stress!! πŸ˜€

Princess Party

Perfectly pink princess party for my daughter turning 4.. Absolutely loved every minute of it.. and it came together nicely and turned into a pretty successful princess party every 4 yr old will dream of!
When I was designing the menu for this party I wanted pink to dominate throughout the table that I wanted the desserts to deliver the same feel. So I loved using lots of soft cloudy pink in the form of Β fluffy strawberry mousse and the marshmallows, and highlighted a bit of sharp pink in strawberries and cake stand and whole bunch of custom cookies. The dessert table included A giant Barbie doll choc cake, red velvet cupcakes with vanilla butter cream, strawberry marshmallow moose, chocolate dipped marshmallows, tarts and tons of crown, castle and slipper shaped cookies. just reading the list sounds fun, fun, fun!! Totally fit for a princess!
For the decor I used lots and lots of pink net fabric, lanterns, pom poms, banner and pale pink and yellow paper heart garlands. My personal favorite were the party hats_ I bought some cheap off the counter paper party hats and covered them in the yummiest shade of pink napkins and than lined them with pale yellow pom poms lace. They turned out spectacular! Almost everything was a DIY other than the lanterns and a couple of small pom poms.

Frozen Birthday Party

This week we celebrated Inayah’s fifth birthday which is always event of the year at our place.. πŸ™‚ To celebrate the birth of our precious daughter. This year it had to be a Frozen Party. That just seems to be the theme of the year or something. There is no one i know who cannot hum along to the frozen song “let it go”.. πŸ˜€

I stayed true to the theme with Olaf cake and snowflake decor. Did’nt go over the top but kept it cool with whites and blue hues. Vanilla ice cream shake was a huge hit. And so were the coconut cupcakes. The dessert Table was a huge hit. And I loved the dreamy look it all created and how well it blended with my black and white striped wall.

Another beautiful memorable party for my princess who seems to be growing up so fast. I had a blast creating it all and at the party. And the best part was it was smack on a budget. Full of fun and easy DIYs and Β I am open to answering any queries and comments.
