Thank you to Chic Sugars bakery for partnering with us on this cake idea! I asked for a unique take on the candy spill cake by changing out the filling to include the traditional candy hearts that we all love and know so well. I also wanted the look and feel to be pretty and elegant even though it was for a kiddie party. And I’m thrilled with how this NJ based bakery created this!!  What do you think of it??

I love the pretty ombré pink exterior. Isn’t it lovely?? And the details on the top of the cake made my mouth drop. Just look at those fondant candy hearts with mini messages! And look at how delicate and intricate each of these gorgeous flowers are! It was almost too pretty to eat!

It went SO perfectly with my heart shaped plates which I used both as cake plates and as backdrop decor! Click here to purchase the plates. tip If you’re careful with cleaning them, they are strong enough to be re-used.

The inside of the cake was JUST as delectable. Moist and not too sweet, it was a hit with everyone.

Princess Picnic Summer PlayDate

I just love this princess phase.  I kinda hope it never ends.  Juliet is 5 and totally obsessed with all things Disney princess, castles, tiaras and dress-up.  So it is no surprise that she wanted to throw a princess picnic for her and some neighborhood friends.  Here are some shots from our posh playdate.  Hopefully it offers some fabulous inspiration for you to throw your own themed playdate or party!

Since it was a beautiful summer day, we hosted the picnic on our rooftop making it easy to bring down all our princess toys, picnic gear and decor.  We simply re-purposed past party decor (thus legitimizing my hoarded stash of party supplies).  The girls enjoyed playing pretend with the toy picnic set while minding their princess manners learned at the Princess in Training playdate we hosted years ago.   Not that these girls, needed much training…after all they WERE born princessess…

Like at all of our posh playdates and themed parties, we asked all our little guests to dress in theme and loved greeting each new guest in their glorious princess attire.

Each dressed to impress!  And we were so honored to have Elena of Avalor, Elsa and 2 Belles in attendance!  Upon arrival, Juliet who is the hostest with the mostest, treated each guest to a fluffy pink tulle wand to make each guest feel a little more powerful.

And each guest was asked if they wanted to wear a pair of Disney (stick-on) earrings of their choice.  (Of course, they all did!)

They were also each given matching, metallic, heart-shaped bangles to wear.  Juliet just loves gifting her friends and commemorating her playdates in this way.

Toys of all kinds were laid out for the girls to play with..screw on gem activities, Disney princess dolls (1 to match each girl’s costume), Disney princess castles, magic clip dolls etc.)  The girls had plenty to keep them occupied.

And yes, that’s Juliet throwing confetti into the air.  Each girl was given a confetti wand to sprinkle some fun.

Us moms couldn’t stop smiling at all the girly action.  It was truly cuteness overload.

Princess tattoos were offered by the water.

I think it’s safe to say that the little princesses had a ball!

Thank you CharmIt for the adorable princess charmed necklace! Juliet loved wearing it to the party.
