The dessert table selections at the “Make a Wish” birthday party were nestled in a china cabinet I found at a local thrift store. It wasn’t very pretty when I purchased, it but I saw it’s interesting lines and knew a little paint would work wonders! The same shop happened to have the tea cart (which I painted pink!) The balloons were scattered on the floor to give a dreamy effect; and the kids loved picking them up to play with them. Kid parties need balloons!
Genevive at Superchick Studios aka Posh Party Pretties dreamed up these excellent Kandy Kones for me. She used the scrapbook paper designed for the Wish printable set, and accented the cones with oragami stars and sparkles!
In my search for some party treats, I ran across Dainty Delights, Inc. She has the most wonderfully unique selection of sugar cookies I’ve ever seen! I love how delicate they are and the addition of the little gum paste flowers makes them even more exquisite. You can find her store on Etsy.
The dandelion lollipops were made by Courtney (one of my fantastic helpers!) since I am pretty terrible at dipping things in candy. (Yes, there, I said it.) Instead of going through the mess of making cake balls, I take a little shortcut that tastes great and is a fraction of the mess. I buy the two bite brownies premade at the grocery store, roll them into balls and put a stick in them. The brownies are moist enough they don’t need frosting to make them stick together!
The rest of the china cabinet was filled with different sweet treats for the kids. The push pops we ended up including in the favor bags, as there was so much else to eat!

The cake was made by Something Sweet Cake Studio. It turned out absolutely perfect – simple but charming, with lots of sparkle! The strawberry milkshakes were a special request by the birthday girl; the shot glasses made for just enough for each child they were a HUGE hit.
