In July I had the pleasure of creating Tiffani Thiessen’s daughter Harper’s 2nd birthday dessert table. Tiffani may have played the scandalous role of Val on 90210 and every boy’s dream as Kelli Kapowski on Saved By the Bell, but in real life she is just as sweet as can be.
Tiffani told me one of Harper’s first words was “bird” so they chose a bird theme for her 2nd birthday. I instantly fell in love with the theme, the colors, and the incredible invitation her sister in law Jill of Jill Smith Design created for Harper. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the invitation sets the stage for the party. Jill absolutely nailed it with her beautiful invite of birds, birdcages and amazing colorful fonts printed on wood. The minute I saw the invitation I was thrilled to create a coordinating dessert table.
For Harper’s table, I decided to make 5 different textured buttercream cakes in the colors from her invite. Guests enjoyed the variety of cake in addition to cake pops, cupcakes and sugar cookies baked in the custom made bird cutters similar to the bird on the invitation. Desserts were set atop wood tree rounds and stump pedestals, along with colorful glass cake plates. We put the table in front of Tiffani’s gorgeous glass doors and hung scattered birdcages above the table.
The party was amazing. Not only was Tiffani an absolute dream client to work for with her prompt replies and easy going personality, but her family and friends were incredible as well. The love of family was so prominent I could have moved to California just to make new friends with them.
Thank you Tiffani for including me in sweet Harper’s 2nd birthday. Can’t wait for her 3rd birthday!
