Vibrant colors and playful patterns pair beautifully in this ‘Easter Has Sprung’ themed party, styled by the design geniuses Maureen Anders and Adria Ruff of Anders Ruff.
Anders Ruff: “We wanted to show how a dessert table doesn’t have to be on an actual ‘table'. No rules to displaying your desserts; we opted for two side-by-side white painted metal garden type shelving. I love the effect the height had on the display. Think outside the ‘table’ and use some of your fabulous furniture as the focal point of your party.”
Paper parasols in pink, chartreuse, and aqua, from Luna Bazaar, hang above the display. Wheatgrass is planted in long, clear glass containers wrapped with chartreuse ribbon, and makes a charming display for treats like marshmallow bunnies and chicks, and Easter lollipops with printable party logos. Polka dotted favor bags from Michael’s are filled with treats and decorated with coordinating printable party stickers.
Anders Ruff: "Minnie Pearl, our bunny model, enjoyed nibbling at all the treats, but really loved her favorite food: carrots!"
Below, egg-shaped cake pops, from Terri’s Party Treasures, are displayed in small glass ramekins and decorated to look like dyed Easter eggs. The cake pops are topped by printable party flags from the ‘Easter Has Sprung!’ collection.
Anders Ruff: “We made our own Easter baskets using natural fiber planters that we painted with matte white paint. We drilled holes in the sides for the handles. Ribbon was wrapped tightly around wire to create the handles. We then embellished the basket with thick wired ribbon. They are very lightweight, which is great for young children.”
Cupcakes are served in small natural fiber pots that were painted white; containers are embellished with ribbon and filled with kraft shred.
Anders Ruff: "These fabulous exclusive fondant cupcake toppers are from Two Sugar Babies and are so perfect with our printable set. They really added a pop of color onto the natural white butter cream and natural shred."
The fondant cake was designed by Mandie of Got What It Cakes; notice how the kaleidoscope pattern matches the patterned paper included in the printable set. Too cute! The bunny topper also coordinates with the party logos. Visit the Anders Ruff blog to learn how to make the sweet egg-shaped button candies displayed on the right.
Anders Ruff: “The kids loved holding Minnie Pearl outside and running around the green in our neighborhood, finding eggs.”
