Avery's Sweet Strawberry Birthday Party

Share To:

strawberry dessert table

Our little friend, Avery just turned four! Avery is the darling daughter of one of our favorite photographers, Jessica Downey. This was Jessica’s first time styling a dessert table, and though she was a little nervous, I knew she would do a beautiful job. I was correct! All of the desserts, details and photos are absolutely stunning. Jessica borrowed a few of my cake plates and picked out a few fun supplies from our shop for the party.

Enjoy all of these gorgeous images taken by Jessica…

    […] I got together a few theme ideas and from those, Avery chose the strawberry theme.  Since it was my very first party planning venture, I thought it would be best to keep the guest list small – just her classmates from preschool and church.  We had a lot of fun coming up with all the beautiful elements for the dessert table, and I’m SO happy with all the talented vendors and the wonderful work they did to make this party really special!  Be sure to check out the links after you feast your eyes on the pictures!  And don’t forget to check out Kim’s sweet write up about the party on the TomKat Studios blog!

    Jessica, your a PRO first time out! And you can never go wrong with all the cute thinks you get from The Tomkat Studio. LOVE your banner also! I just recently staged my daughters wedding using many vintage pieces of furniture for the beverage table and deserts/cake table, love the look and comfy feel of everything vintage. BTW your photography is also amazing! happy birthday to your little one. She’s got many more wonderful parties ahead of her. And thanks KIM for sharing with us all as we drool……K

    I’d say she did a GREAT job on her first dessert table! Everything is so pretty, and those wooden spools are a surprising and perfect touch. And that cake! YUM!
