{ Spring Party Week } - Let's Go Fly a Kite!

"Let's go fly a kite, up to the highest height...... "

Doesn't that little tune bring back some great memories? Playing in the grass, singing and dancing without a care in the world. Well, that's exactly the idea behind one of my favorite party tables of all time from Tracey Lau. This one is pure perfection. Absolutely stunning.

Australian based Tracey Lau, a mother, event planner and photographer, created this unforgettable display for her son's 1st birthday celebration. Tracey's attention to detail is amazing, her style.... impeccable. About her party Tracey says, "So to the Kite Party, what was I thinking - I started with Blue sky and lush green grass, added in outdoors flying kites, and outdoors in the park takes me to gingham, throw in some yummy treats and this is what I ended up with…Jeremiah’s Dessert Table!"


Tracey's backdrop says it all..... carefree, fun, simple. Genius, I think.
It makes you just want to jump right into this gorgeous Spring day.

Just take a close look at some of Tracey's details: colorful candies in jars, candy bar favors wrapped in paper and embellished with a paper kite and ribbon, fondant kite cupcakes
with cloud icing, sweet kite cookies on sticks in the perfect white picket fence container,
and of course, those adorable cloud marshmallows (Tracey purchased these in Australia, but I found a great tutorial on the web if you'd like to make your own).

It's so cute, I can barely stand it!

The artificial grass as a tablecloth is such a nice touch. It really conveys that "running in the park" feel of the table. I love Tracey's use of a white frame to hold her caramel corn cones, too. About the frame project she says, "(My husband) replaced the glass, etc.
with MDF for me and drilled 12 holes. We then gave it another coat of
white paint so it all worked and added in legs."

And just look at those cloud food labels - So sweet! Bags of cotton candy as "fairy floss"
and drinks in the perfect sky blue color with those popular striped straws
round out this beautiful dessert table.

Tracey also made the kite invitations with scrapbook paper and some ribbon and included the wording for the invite on the back. Wouldn't every child love to get this invitation in the mail!

She says, "We couldn’t be happier with how the day turned out, and I must say Jeremiah enjoyed himself, especially his first ever taste of cake. I think he is hooked."

How wonderful!
Hard work pays off in a fabulous party to celebrate little Jeremiah's milestone birthday.

Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard
work due to no backup. Do you have any methods
to protect against hackers?
