Grinch Themed Dessert Table

This weekend I designed a dessert table for a good friend of mine who threw her little boy a fabulous first birthday party. Jenny is a very creative girl with a great party mind, lots of love for her little boy and a sweet husband who will play along. ;)

The theme was The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. I love the premise of the party which is that the Grinch stole Christmas for the greater good...for all those little boys and girls whose birthdays fall at Christmas. Steal Christmas to give them back the spotlight. ;) Jenny definitely succeeded in putting the spotlight on her little boy with all the hardwork she put into the party. This dessert table is just a small part of a great party put on by a even greater mommy!!!

Happy Birthday Rhett!! Welcome to single digits!!!

Recognize the backdrop? Its from the Wrap and Wine. Since I was sticking to the red and green color scheme I thought it would make a perfect backdrop.

All the desserts were things the Grinch stole from the Whos.

First off, their ornaments (cake balls).

The Who's presents...

Pudding from the Whos' feast....

Cookies and milk that the Whos left out for Santa...

Jello from the Whos' feast...

Rhett's smash cake...

The main birthday cake...

Happy 1st Birthday Rhett!!!
