{Creative Customer Guest Post} Bakery Inspired Birthday Party

Today I have a special treat for you. I asked one of our Creative Customers, Dannyelle, to be a guest blogger and share some photos and details about her daughter's bakery inspired birthday party. I hope that you enjoy Dannyelle's inspiration ... now I'm off to the bakery to pick up some cupcakes ...



I’m Dannyelle from  Life is a Party. Life is a Party is a blog where I share my cooking, parties, entertaining, DIY projects and decorating ideas. I’m so happy to be with you today sharing some of the details of my daughter’s bakery themed birthday party.

We had a really “sweet” time celebrating with family and friends. We turned our living room into a pretend bakery and cafe for our little guests, complete with a kitchen to bake in, a front counter for customers to order their treats and tables for them to eat at.

I love the sweet bakery boxes, and mini shopping bags we used from Creative Bag. Along with lots of play food and saved packages of baking supplies we made fun flour and sugar bags by rubber stamping on to a muslin bag. See all the details of the pretend bakeshop here.

We also set up the dining room for our little bakers to decorate real cupcakes! This was a huge success. I loved using the bakery boxes for everyone to take their treats home in. Their other take-home was their own apron, which I sewed from tea towels and pretty ribbon; find the tutorial here.

We served a lovely buffet lunch, which included pink lemonade, of course, with the perfect pink polka dotted paper straws. We also came up with the “Sweetest Sweet Table Ever”, a bakeshop dessert table which included lots of amazing treats that I baked up for the party. I loved all the cookies, and marshmallow pops packaged up in the perfect little cello bags, all tied up with pink baker’s twine -how perfect! There were literally too many cute cupcake details to mention, but one of my absolute favourite was the sweet cupcake flower centre pieces, love the little bow on top too!

I hope you’ll come by Life is a Party to visit and read about all the how-to’s behind this fun party!
