Glittering Gold & Pink Birthday

What’s a party without a little sparkle?  From shimmering gold to pink bows and feathers, this first birthday party really shines.  Little girls and big girls agree… all that glitters is gold!  And today’s party is no exception!  With incredible sweets created by our friends at Intricate Icings, this was definitely one sweet affair.  Dazzling cakes, cookies and cake pops all inspired by the party invitation.  Plus a mini, ombre-ruffle cake, made especially for the birthday girl!  Love, love, love it!  We’re just beaming over this Glittering Gold & Pink 1st Birthday….

The invitation provided the inspiration for the cake, cupcakes and cookies.  Shimmering gold, pink bows plus a few edible feathers to complete the look.  Even the cupcake stand was glittering with fun (and the birthday girl’s name, Storey)!

Golden bows made from modeling chocolate take these cake pops to a whole new level of fabulous!  They pair perfectly with charming pink and gold bow-shaped cookies.

A bedazzled photo booth with a sparkly gold backdrop set the stage for guests to strike a pose.  And the perfect setting to capture this sweet moment… the birthday girl and her giant pink balloon!
