Lots of "mini" desserts.
Cake pops: lemon chiffon and strawberry cream. We used green flower foam with plastic green grass in the container to help the pops stand up.
Cotton Candy Corn: this was super easy to make. Just pop some popcorn, mix it with some almond bark and add some festive sprinkles. It was yummy too! The cupcake jars we found at Hobby Lobby.
Lemon Chiffon Baskets: for this we used Paula Deen's Lemon Cake recipe baked in the Kraft Ripple Cups from Garnish. After they were baked, we cut into the top, filled with a dollop of lemon curd and topped with whipped cream and a lemon wedge. We also tied a bit of twine around each for an added bit of charm.
Brownie Berry Trifles: The little plastic containers were purchased from Party City. We used a Ghirardelli Brownie Mix baked and then cut into bit sized pieces. We then layered chocolate mousse (made by mixing chocolate pudding and a tub of cool whip), and topped with a couple of raspberries. These were really good and really simple.
Mini Cherry Cheesecakes: These were also quite simple. We used a box of no-bake cheesecake and a can of cherry pie filling. We layered them in jars from Hobby Lobby and used a rubber band to attach the little wooden spoons. The spoons were purchased from Garnish. I stamped the text on them and used a hot glue gun to adhere the rosettes.
Candy Coated Rice Krispies: We cut these into heart shapes and drizzled candy coating over. The bucket was mod podged with scrap paper.
Maddie's cake was a mini 6" strawberry cream with strawberry frosting. We used the extra for mini cupcakes and cakepops.
There4 was also mini sugar cookies on green dyed coconut, chocolate covered strawberries and chocolate covered pretzels.
We did have some non-sugared fare as well:
Veggie Cups with Ranch Dressing in the bottom:
Beverages were mini water bottles and Old Fashioned Lemonade. Paper straws are from The Party Fairy.
We also had littl take home favors that were little spades and rakes with garden animals on the end and bug catcher kits for the more daring.
And it wouldn't be a complete post without a picture of our little birthday girl!
