Frozen Winter Birthday Party Part 2 ~ The Food and Dessert Tables

Hi everyone! Welcome back to Hailey's frozen winter birthday party! If you missed our last post, you may like to read Frozen Winter Birthday Party Part 1 ~ The Preparations. As I mentioned in our last post, we were ripping up the carpet in our dining room and office which meant that we still needed to put most of our furniture back before Hailey's party. So, we kept her party simple. We ordered her birthday cake from a local bakery and purchased blue punch. Then, I baked cupcakes and cookies and used our bread tubes to make heart shaped bread for peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. I, also, made heart shape ice cream. (I used the same idea I did in Hailey's princess/prince/knight birthday party.) Next, I filled our apothecary jars with candy in blue, white, and silver colors. We used our white dishes to serve cheese sticks, carrots, black olives, and chips. Seriously, the easiest menu I have ever planned!

When I was going through the photos of cakes
the bakery had done previously, I saw this cake done as
a beach theme cake with seashells, etc.
And then, I saw a picture with snowflakes on cookies.
So, I asked if they could do a cake in these blue
colors and add the snowflakes for a frozen winter theme.
I was very pleased when I picked up the cake.
It turned out even better than what I had pictured in my mind.
It was a beautiful cake and tasted great!
(I added the number seven to the top of the cake.)

I had set up the dinner table earlier so all I had to do was
add the food when it was time for the guests to arrive.

The heart shaped peanut butter and jelly sandwiches were splendid.

The blue punch coordinated perfectly with the color scheme.

We used the mason jars that we already had and used previously
for Hailey's Strawberry Shortcake Party part 1, part 2part 3,
Brice's Pizza Parlor Party, and Lexie's and Brice's Nacho Bar Fiesta.

Since we set up a table in front of the bay window
for dinner, we used our buffet as a dessert table.

Since the ice cream was going to be placed on top of
the cupcakes, I made them in a smaller mold pan than the one

We will be back soon to share the rest of Hailey's party!
