Feb 15 2013 - 10:14am

"I figured this would be the last year I could call the shots on my son's birthday-party theme," says event-design expert Shannon Wellington of Bottle Pop Party Company [1] of her son Gabriel's second birthday bash. "Even though he’s growing up so fast, I knew I wanted a sweet theme that was still a bit babyish. His first and favorite song has been 'Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star,' so I knew that was the way to go." Twinkle lights, clouds, and tons of star-shaped sweets and decorations, including an awesome Star Bar, turned this simple starting point into a sensational party. Keep clicking for all the glittery, starry details.

Dessert Table

"I convinced a friend to save her old windows for me for the backdrop, which I backed with a navy shower curtain and tiny twinkle lights," Shannon says. "I whipped up some puffy white clouds using felt and batting to hang above it. Then I went crazy with the desserts. From the gold glittered cake pops to the shooting-star sugar cookies to the pineapple stars, everything was homemade. I added a bit of gold washi tape to all of my white serving pieces to tie it together."
