Claire's Woodland Brunch 2nd Birthday Party!

Monday, December 24, 2012

Claire's Woodland Birthday party was a success! 

I made the invitations with my Silhouette software, of course! 

Since she has a birthday so close to Christmas I thought it would be a good idea to have a brunch party so that hopefully more people could come to her party since most holiday parties are in the evenings. 

We served Greek yogurt with granola and berries, apple and brie mini quiche, clementines, and grapes. I definitely recommend that you try the apple and brie quiches! Super delicious! 

The lighting up in the ballroom isn't great so this picture doesn't do the table scape justice! I made Claire's name banner out of wood grain scrapbook paper that I cut with my handy dandy silhouette machine. I laid a moss table runner on top of the table cloth and had a moss basket to hold the silverware, it looked super cute and woodsy.... but... did you know that moss smells funny? I didn't.. until the party. 

Also, you can't tell in this picture but the platters with the quiche on them have a wood grain pattern embossed on them! They were a super great timing Target find! 

Mini mushroom cupcakes! I made the cake platter by covering two cans with wood grain scrapbook paper and then stacking two wood slices that I bought at Hobby Lobby and Michael's. I had a hard time finding the wood grain scrapbook paper but the girl scouts (@Michael's) came through for me :). It's a really cute set of papers, I made the food label tags with the leaf paper punch-outs that come with the set! 

Orange Juice, Chocolate Milk, and Coffee Punch!
