Carousel Birthday Party

A carousel birthday party for sweet, little Alina. 
We designed this carousel themed birthday party with pink and mint green as the color scheme, adding touches of gold and yellow to make the event more lively and suitable for a baby girl's first birthday. It was a big challenge to design this dessert table for over 80 guests at an outdoor park with the incredible August heat. We did it successfully by having dry goods, nothing that can melt or spoil, from popcorn to donuts, to carousel sugar horses and big, and fondant, flower cupcakes. 
For the kids tablescape, we custom made carousel horse cutout plates to match the gold, sparkly party hats. We added 5" mini balloons and confetti donuts for sparkle and pizazz. This merry-go-round was a super sweet treat! 

Sugar cookies and donuts

Rice Krispie treats with custom sugar horses. 

Fondant cake pops in order to withstand the heat.

The birthday girl also cut her first set of teeth; therefore a teething celebration was in order. It's an Armenian tradition to eat grain called "hatik" and drizzle a hand full of "hatik" on top of the baby's head to bless a smooth and painless cutting of all teeth. 

Condiments for the "hatik"

Hope you had fun!
