I decided to go with a blue and green theme for his birthday. We went out to dinner so I ended up styling the table as a dessert table, rather than as a full blown shindig. That kind of fanciness is kind of reserved for the kids and all the fun that comes with a big birthday party.
So even though I didn't go grand I still like how his blue and green mini dessert table turned out.
I had this wrapping paper already on hand and it fit perfectly with the theme. I love using what you have to make things work!
I created the 'runner' of scalloped circles using construction paper and card stock from my paper supply. I thought about purchasing a plain round circle punch but ended up just using my scallop circle punch.
I decided to make a messy or whipped looking cake. It is rather simple and pretty forgiving. After frosting the cake you just use the back of a spoon to create the swirl or whoosh effects.
I also decided to add a cake bunting banner via Tom Kat Studio.
The theme of the blue and green continued with the inside of the cake! I made two blue layers and one green layer. All you taste is cake and not any yucky food coloring in case the coloring is throwing you off.
Finally, I saved one of my favorite pictures for last. This was the card from the kids and I love the way my son personalized it with a heart.
Grown up celebrations can not be fun too!
