PARTY DETAILS, as told by Tania…
The birthday was for my nephew, Mate, pronounced m.ah.teh, and he was one of the happiest little golfers ever!
The set up of this table is very simple and symetrical. When I was researching golf parties on Pinterest, I came across a cake that inspired the one I made. It was originally designed by Lindsay of Love & Olive Oil. I liked the idea of the grass top and the hole in one concept. I used a shot glass to serve as an outline for the hole and frosted all around it and then lifted it off to leave the exposed chocolate cake. I this same grass frosting technique for the cupcakes!
Lexy of Pink Frosting, created some of the cutest golf themed cookies ever. I asked for some golf scenes, plaid patterns and mini golf balls and wow, did she deliver! To show them off, I placed them in the tall grass which is great to add to the theme and decor.
All the little guests were asked to visit the ‘pro shop’ to pick up their birthday favor giveaways! Each child got a set of clubs, a visor, water bottle and some treats! As always the favor tags and thank you cards are included in the party package. Using a coordinating ribbon, I attached the tag to the golf set to make it resemble a price tag for the ’pro shop’ giftware.
As I was stringing the name banner to the front of the table, I was trying to think of something to use to hide my safety pins. It was a totally unplanned detail, but I just love how the golf tees looked tied together to create a finishing touch for the banner.
There are so many clever play on words that can be used in this theme, I used ‘cup’cakes, irons and woods and ’club’ sandwiches.
