So you’ve just spent a fortune on a gorgeous birthday cake that is sure to impress your little one as well as your guests. But how do you stand out from the crowd and take the wow factor of your kid’s birthday party up a notch? With mouthwatering themed dessert tables, of course! Who’d say no to a delectable spread of bite-sized sugary wonders? Not I, for sure! Caution: visuals may induce a sugar rush in some individuals.
1. Connor’s Beach Themed 1st Birthday
Little Connor had a beach themed first birthday bash that made use of three dominant shades – coral, green and aqua. This marvellous dessert table created by A Cuppa Luv was set against a beach backdrop complete with a suspended surfboard overhead that announced the name of the celebration. What was on the dessert table? Hand-painted macarons that featured beach designs, cake pops with crab and shell-shaped toppers, flip-flop shaped cookies and cupcakes topped with surfboards!
2. Reanne’s Sofia The First Themed 3rd Birthday
Frozen isn’t the only animated show that has cast a spell over little girls everywhere. Three-year-old Reanne wanted a Sofia The First themed birthday party, and that’s what she got. The celebration featured a jaw-dropping Sofia The First themed dessert table painstakingly put together by party planner Colour it Sweet. The mauve cake pops were decorated with tiny pearls and topped off with purple ‘gems’ on their reverse end. Even the jelly cups were lined with pretty lace bearing a little satin flower. How dainty!
3. Jemma’s Sanrio Themed 1st Birthday
This Sanrio themed dessert table was one of the highlights at little Jemma’s first birthday bash. The design team at Hokey Pokey was initially unsure of which Sanrio character to incorporate into the dessert table. They eventually included most of them with an added emphasis on My Melody and Piano. Hello Kitty fans, don’t be disappointed – the popular feline featured on the sugar cookies as well as the cupcakes. Don’t they look purr-fect?
4. Arianna’s Mermaid Themed 1st Birthday
Baby Arianna turned one in style with a splendid mermaid themed birthday party! According to Little House of Dreams, their mermaid themed dessert tables are quite the rage. This beautiful one used shades of sparkly mint green and baby pink with a touch of gold. Arianna’s parents had requested for adorable clam shaped macarons presented on a bed of edible sand. (wow!) Other highlights? A mermaid cake, marble marshmallow pops and beach themed chocolate shooters!
5. Yves’ Blue & Yellow Themed Full Month Party
Who says dessert tables are only for birthday parties? Baby’s full month celebrations also call for a sumptuous spread of sweet treats! Little Yves had a minimalist dessert table catered for a modest group of guests at his full month party. Those little yellow cubes you see on the left are Pastry Den’s most popular sweet treat – the classic New Yorker cheesecake! Pastry Den tells us that their minimalist set-ups are designed in relation to a client’s chosen set of colours. They prefer to keep it simple and let their desserts do the talking!
6. Franco’s Sky Themed 2nd Birthday
If you love all things rainbow hued, you are going to absolutely love this one. A sky themed (derived from the popular animated Disney flick “Up”) dessert table was put together for two-year-old Franco’s birthday bash by the talented people at Party Fiestar. The triple chocolate cupcakes were each topped with a mini bunch of colourful balloons and there were rainbow shaped sugar cookies for guests to take home. The birthday cake itself had a uber adorable fondant hot air balloon resting on it. (Up, up, and away!)
7. Ethan’s Cars Themed 1st Birthday
Little boys can’t seem to get enough of Disney’s Cars. The animated film has found its way to dessert tables! Ethan’s first birthday party was made extra memorable with a Cars themed dessert table crafted by the creative people at Party Mojo. Needless to say, checkered black and white flags took centre stage in this dessert table’s design. They were present in the form of cupcake holders, cupcake toppers as well as sugar cookies in the shape of the number one!
8. Ethan’s Animal Themed 1st Birthday
The ever popular animal theme is what you see in this dessert table that was part of baby Ethan’s first birthday bash. The baby animal theme featured mostly in the table’s decorations as well as the mini cake pops. The mini white chocolate cupcakes were also topped with black fondant in the shape of baby elephants. Extra cute points for the little monkey cut-outs hovering above the baby blue alphabets. The good people at Susucre sure do pay attention to details!
9. Riley’s Bunny Themed 1st Birthday
Still on the subject of animals, here’s a pink and purple bunny themed dessert table. And yes, it was for a little girl. Baby Riley marked her first birthday with this highly adorable set-up put together by the artisans at The Dessert Party. The pink and purple 3D flowers hovering above the birthday cake add a touch of dainty to the whole set-up, don’t they? I’m told that the Lychee Rose cupcakes and Chocolate Nutella tartlets are rather popular with customers.
10. Naomi’s Pastel Unicorn Themed 1st Birthday
This pastel unicorn themed dessert table looks like it stepped right out of a book of fairytales! The pastel hues used provide the set-up with a rather dreamy air, don’t they? The unicorn themed set of sweet treats was catered to celebrate Naomi’s first birthday, and we think she must have been a very happy girl looking at those cute unicorns on the dessert table’s backdrop. Those Nutella Red Velvet cupcakes resting on tiers below the birthday cake are said to be a hot favourite with White Spatula’s customers!
