Now on to the drink table. We decided to just go with water because it was easier, we didn't want parents mad if the kids spilled, and we were going to outside with the heat. I covered the table top with sand, then put jewels, pirate gold, beaded necklaces, bottles with treasure maps, and artificial plants (seaweed) all over the table. I had a big pitcher in the middle of the table that I labeled "Water of the Caribbean" and draped a fish net over and down the rest of the table. I order personalized water bottle labels from the same place I got the invitations online here. They were too cute to pass up. And last was the dessert table... We will start with the cake. I put the cake and some cupcakes on tall acrylic stands to give them some height. I filled the stems of the stands with gold coins to fill in the empty space. The cake was a treasure island with a little fondant pirate boy with a small treasure chest and map. The cake is iced and covered in graham cracker crumbs with a fondant palm tree, blue frosting along the bottom for the water, and a fondant octopus. I also made matching cupcakes. They were also iced and then covered with graham cracker crumbs and topped with chocolate gold coins and little chocolate jewels. Then I took a blue piece of fabric and draped it around the base of the cake stands and down the middle of the table. I made more cupcakes to look like little mini pirate ships and made a "Cupcake Cove". The sails were free printable found here, and the cupcake wrappers I ordered online here. On the left side of the cove I had a plate of sugar cookies made by the fabulous Gina that you can order from here. On the right side of the cove we had a plate of rice crispy treats. I made little fondant treasure maps and attached them with icing. Then there were glass containers of various snacks and candy all over the table that were themed too.
We had Swedish fish... Packages of Pixy Sticks... Pretzels that we dipped in chocolate and covered with white and red sprinkles. Chocolate Whoppers... And there were two treasure chests on either side of the table that we filled with chocolate coins, rolos, and Hershey Gold Nuggets that we called "Buried Treasure". I found these super cute cake pops online here and just had to get them! I knew they wouldn't have turned out as cute if I tried to make them myself. We put them inside the treasure chests poking out of the candy. And I was right! When I got the cake pops I was so impressed! They were larger than I anticipated and the details of the little pirates were SO GOOD! Again, you can find them and many more here. I also had at each end of the table little Kandy Kones that I found online here. The guests could take one and fill them up with candy and munch on throughout the party. I loved the colors, matched the party perfectly, and the little gold pierced edges and jewels on the side - TOO CUTE! Well that about does it for all the details on the food. Stay tuned for the next post on all the games and activities.
