I based the color scheme on the announcement which I ordered from here. I just loved the pretty pink and brown, so I ran with it. (In case you're trying to figure it out...the Princess is holding up 8 fingers in the framed photo to show that she's 8-years-old. The matte cut her pinky finger off...so I thought I'd better explain.)
I chose to use a pennant theme for the table which I first covered in a pretty brown and white damask table cloth. I made several small pennant flags (tutorial to come) and placed them in a little creamer which I, in turn, placed on top of a small cake plate and used as a centerpiece.
I also made a little cake bunting (again, tutorial to come) which I used to make the cupcake tower look more festive. With all the preparations I made for the party, I actually forgot to get more frosting bags, so for the first time in my cupcake making history, I wasn't able to pipe the frosting onto the cupcakes. It was good for my perfectionist OCD self to have to simply frost the cupcakes and deal with it, and you know what? They looked just fine. (Especially with the cute bunting on top.)
I finished off the table with some homemade lollipops in pink and brown, and a pennant banner made from the same papers as the centerpiece and cake bunting. As well as a pretty, glittered congratulations banner from Martha Stewart's craft line. Family and friends brought the remaining goodies (pot-luck style) and with everything going on I didn't actually get a photo of the table all full of food...but you get the idea.
All in all, a lovely goodie table...for a lovely day....for a lovely daughter...whom I adore!
Have a great day~
