We worked together with the birthday girl and her mother to create this festive and elegant birthday dinner.  The inspiration was shades of blue and coral as well as lights and lanterns. 24 The main features of the party were the dessert table, backdrop, dinner table and lights/lanterns.  The hostess’s backyard was the perfect setting for an evening dinner party. 25 Guests enjoyed a lovely dinner prepared by Humble House and then desserts were placed on the table later in the evening due to the heat. 5 First we will take a closer look at the dinner table.  We used a burlap and lace runner as a foundation and then added decor to compliment the color scheme as well as the shabby chic theme. 8 The coral napkins were the perfect pop of color to the table. 2 We also matched the paper straws to the coral napkins.  The girls drank their water and tea from mason jars. 9 Blue hydrangeas and pale antique carnations were a lovely accent to the table. 11 We used small crates and wooden shelves to elevate the floral arrangements on the table. 23 Dainty lanterns and candles were also placed as centerpieces.  We incorporated various shades of blue and coral embellishments throughout the table decor. 6 We used a small patio table as the drink station.  Water and sweet tea were a great fit for the dinner. 16 Next we will take a look at the photo backdrop. 18 The birthday girl wanted a backdrop inspired by the round paper lanterns.  She wanted something festive and in various shades of blue and coral.  The guests had so much fun taking pictures here! 19 These are the photo booth props we provided for the girls.  From mustaches to crowns and glasses to mini chalkboards, we had it covered! 17 The dessert table was the hit of the party!  We used a backdrop similar to the photo backdrop and added shabby chic accents to complete this look. 37 We added crates and flowers to the front of the table and we love how it looked! 27 26 Now we will take a detailed look at the dessert table. 40Top Left: Chocolate Caramel Mousse, Salted Caramel Mousse, and Caramel Popcorn
