Birthday Dessert Table with Backdrop

Birthday Dessert Table with Backdrop

Last week I shared with you an easy, and disposable, cupcake stand.  Today I want to pan out and show you the dessert table I put together for Little Lady’s 3rd birthday party.

We didn’t have a lot of sweets, a carrot cake and cupcakes were the main fare, along with a tiered tray of brownie bites, chocolate, and graham bunnies.  Just enough sugar to keep the kids going.

I found the perfect spot for a dessert table, just off my kitchen in the living room.  We have an open first floor so it all flowed nicely together.  I covered the table in a lace tablecloth and the wall in purple pink and white streamers.  I added a cluster of tissue paper pom poms to the mix to finish it off.  These are really easy to make, follow the link for a tutorial.

The backdrop was pretty easy.  I even involved Little Lady who loved measuring and cutting the crêpe paper.

helping with streamers

I cut strips of crêpe paper and used painters tape to secure them all together at one end. I doubled the tape on front and back of the crêpe paper.   Then I used thumb tacks to attach the strip of tape to the ceiling.

From there I twisted the crêpe paper and secured each piece with tape at the bottom behind the table.

Voila, easy dessert table and backdrop.

How do you display your sweets for a party?
