Adorable Pink Elephant Dessert Buffet

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:

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

I am so curious! Love it!

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?

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.

Hi Annie –
I’m not 100% sure how Claudia displayed the marshmallow pops on this buffet – but here’s a tutorial on another way to display them that should help!
