Clau! is back with another fabulous dessert buffet (check out her Colorful Candy Buffet here).

This time she’s created an adorable Pink Elephant theme featuring a pink, white & chocolate color palette and lots of homemade treats that’s full of great inspiration for a Pink Elephant Baby Shower and or a circus-themed kids party!

The pennant garland and pink & white striped background give the buffet a fun circus-style vibe, and I’m also loving the mod style of the darling pink elephant graphic!

In addition to the use homemade treats, which definitely helps to keep things more affordable, there are lots of great DIY ideas to take away from this buffet too…

For example, the scrapbook paper & toothpick food flags, homemade treat labels, and patterned paper backdrop – which you can recreate with rolls of wrapping paper.

Check out an overall shot of the entire table + LOTS more detail pics below…

Marshmallow pops look extra-cute embellished with tiny ribbon bows, and colored chocolate dots give chocolate-covered Oreos a wonderfully contemporary feel:

    It’s so nice to see this dessert table here! I’m throwing a baby shower for my sister and chose brown and pink as theme colors… thank you for so many fabulous ideas! Also, is it my impression or each dessert has been tagged with a potential baby girl’s name?

    I’m throwing my daughter a birthday party soon and this is just the inspiration I needed! Thank you so much! Everything looks amazing and easy. LOVE IT!

    Gorgeous! What board/material did you use for the background? How is it hanging?

    I am so curious! Love it!

  17. Bri says:

    Also, what material is the tablecloth? It appears that the box that you are using to add height is the same fabric/material? Or is it just wrapping paper?

  18. Clau! says:


    The backdrop is made out of plywood sheets on a solid wood frame and it is covered with wrapping paper. The step is also made out of wood and is wrapped with the same type of fabric I used on the tablecloth.
