Bakery Party. I have always wanted to host a tiny bakery party. I dreamed of pink and white stripes, with black and white polka dots. I wanted sweet treats, and darling little aprons for tiny bakers to wear while they decorated cupcakes and cookies. I wanted a perfectly French inspired scalloped awning with a little French logo…So, instead of forcing this party on my boys, or even my niece, I decided to buy a ton of sweet treats and style une petite patisserie for myself! Actually, I am hoping my sister and niece will take the goodies and party supplies and host a little soiree!
I ordered most of the party supplies from Oriental Trading Company. They had a simple white canopy that got my wheels turning to finally create this party, they also had sweet pink pastry boxes and bags, white aprons, pretend cupcakes, and little cupcake lollipops.
Once everything arrived, I got to work turning my vision into a reality. I painted the pvc awning frame, and the awning itself. My husband and I built the little shelf for all of the sweet treats to fit the awning. (And I am sure that I will use both the shelf and the awning again and again) I decided to paint pink stripes on the awning. I used DecoArt Americana Multi-Surface Satin in Bubble Gum Pink. I taped off the awning along the scalloped edges and painted every other one pink. I used DecoArt Decou-Page and painted the painters tape to create a crisp paint line. Finally, I created a logo (get the cut file here), and cut it out of Cricut Iron On Vinyl with my Cricut Maker. I used the Cricut EasyPress to apply the logo, beginning with the bottom layer and working to the top. Each apron was adorned with a touch of pink polka dot ribbon. I love love love the end result! (And I am really hoping my sister and niece decide this is the party for them!)
Once the patisserie was finished, I filled it with store bought sweet treats. Inexpensive cookie sheets were filled with frosted cookies, croissants, and petite cupcakes. Cake plates were topped with more sweet treats, and favor boxes and bags were filled with cupcakes, cookies, and cupcake lollipops. Oriental Trading Company has the sweetest little boxes and bags for packaging pastries! I simply added a printable vinyl logo to the boxes and bags.
This sweet party was everything I dreamed it to be!
