White and Purple 30th Birthday Dessert Table

30th birthday 081

My dear friend Connie celebrated her 30th birthday on the weekend. We had a lovely dinner party, and finished off with this beautiful dessert table.

My friend Heather made beautiful chocolate chip cupcakes with vanilla butter cream. They were so good. The backdrop of the table was made by stringing up some ruffles. I love command hooks, they make it so easy to add party decor, and remove it latter without marking the walls. I also cut out the “30” and decoupaged it with paper doilies, and a little glitter.

I made sweet little blueberry trifles, see the recipe here.

I love serving individual portions.

I had these sweet little tea cups, with pretty purplish flowers, and thought they’d be lovely to hold simple donut holes.

I also served some jelly donut holes on these cute Asian spoons, with a sweet toothpick and ribbon flag added.

We also made shortbread cookies, and tied them into little bundles with purple baker’s twine.
