My college girlfriends and I (there were nine of us) decided to take a trip to the Jersey Shore to celebrate all of our 40th birthdays! We stayed at Harrah’s Resort and Casino in Atlantic City — we lounged at their fantastic indoor pool, spent time at the Red Door Spa, ate at some great restaurants and danced each night like we were 21 again! We had a fantastic time!
I made gift bags for all the ladies, which included these Fabulous & Forty cookie favors.
We created a dessert table for my girlfriend’s baby shower which was held at the R2L in Philadelphia. Let me tell you, this place was spectacular – great views of the city, delicious food and super accommodating waitstaff.
The dessert table was in the center of the room and was styled the same on both sides. There was a dark chocolate cake with salted caramel buttercream, mini carrot cakes with cream cheese buttercream, mini red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese buttercream topped with butter cookies, plates of butter cookies and mini chocolate cupcakes with vanilla buttercream.
How about those gorgeous flower arrangements above? Stunning, right? They were created by Petah Bashano Event & Floral Design. Petah also did the event planning for the entire soiree which was a huge hit!
The custom invitations and dessert table signs were done by Chick Invitations. The artwork was also used to make edible images to put on the butter cookies. Ticings transferred the artwork onto edible frosting sheets! How cute are those little zebras?
The cake bunting, also created by Chick Invitations, matched the “Oh Baby” theme.
Hope you enjoyed the pictures! I had a blast creating the desserts and styling the table!
Considering that I have three boys – Woody and Buzz have been constants in my home for the last nine years and there doesn’t seem to be any end in sight. It’s only natural that I’ve made these Toy Story cookie favors three times, right?
