Last week I had the pleasure of putting together a dessert table for my gorgeous friend Natasha whose son Tommy was celebrating his 4th Birthday.  Natasha is the incredibly talented lady behind my soon to be launched website and she creates lots of the fabulous graphics you see in the printables on my tables – we make a great team so we have spent the past few weeks planning Tommy’s wild animal dessert table – We used a fantastic colour pallet of yellow and chocolate which was great to work with (and did require a little taste testing along the way!).
It started with the invitation.
Which set the theme for the dessert table …
Once again Jacki from Blissfully Sweet Cakes created the most incredible cupcakes with Tigers and Snakes on them – to say they looked amazing is an understatement – she is so talented (check out the feature I did on her here.)  
I whipped up a batch of dark chocolate Tim Tam Cookie Pops and Tommy’s dad made delicious Honey Joys that all tied into our theme perfectly.
Thanks also to Sarah from Style Me Gorgeous for the backdrop idea which she used on her son Jack’s party – (you can pick these up at your local bunnings store).
Our lollies for the day were jelly beans, bon bons, cola straps, lemon sherberts and milk bottles (which we lovingly called possum tails)
 The fantastic Snake illustration was included on all the party paper goods
 Wild snake juice kept the kids cool
 Honey joys, chocolate bees and chocolate frogs – yum!
The party was a blast with some great animals making an appearance to keep everyone entertained as well as wonderful face painting by Aunty Hannah

 Birthday Boy Tommy
Happy Birthday Tommy – we hope you had a wonderful celebration.
Exciting news to finish off – we are thrilled that Tommy’s party has today been featured over at Amy Atlas – thank you Amy for such a lovely feature.
