A huge thank you to Party Expert for partnering up and making this sweet table a success. I received some products to review and all opinions are 100% my own. Party on!

We recently celebrated Leo’s first birthday and well, I kind of went all out for his sweet table. My sweet tooth is out of this world, so I figured: why not treat our guests to some of the snacks that I love?

One quick trip to Party Expert and I was able to put together a sweet table that had our guests talkin’! Here’s how I put it all together:

A Long Table
First and foremost, you’ll want a long table to create a buffet-style ambiance. Let guests know they can help themselves. I added scoops to all of the snack bowls so that everyone could easily place the goodies on their plate.

Leo’s party was jungle-themed, so I opted for this multi-colored-grass tableskirt. It helped bring the overall look together. At first, I was a little intimated with how large it was. In the end, it was so easy to install. It held up throughout the entire night (despite seventy hungry guests).

Stick to the Theme
I asked myself: how could I make this theme really stand out? I decided to add some “fitting titles” for some of our snack offerings: jungle paws, monkey bites, and snake pits took over our table! I used these ultra-cute chalkboard stands to label everything. Our guests absolutely adored this detail. It was fun to see them giggle at the snacks’ names and again, it helped tie everything together.

Table Accessories
Whether you opt for confetti, jewels, or a fitting tablecloth, table accessories are an absolute must. I decided to go for these jungle leaves. I scattered a few across the table and it really tied-in with our theme. I even had enough to add onto my dining tables, surrounding our centrepieces. Absolute success.

Color Choice
A well-thought colour palette can elevate any party. I tried to go for as many green elements as possible (including our table runners and LED lighting). For the sweet table, I added a touch of brightness with these plates and napkins.

An Outstanding Cake
It’s all about symmetry. I made sure to balance our look with similar bowls and serving platters on each side of our sweet table. For the centrepiece, we had a beauty-of-a-cake made by Cakes by Kirsten.

Cakes by Kirsten really delivered: each one of my guests couldn’t stop talking about the flavor and the cake’s aesthetic. Cakemaster/cake genius, Kirsten Lund, made the entire process unforgettable. From day one, she had me excited about cake choices and design. One quick phone call and only a few emails later, she brought to life exactly what I had envisioned. (Psst: visit her on Instagram for more delicious updates.)
