Dessert Table

The dessert table featured a "happy birthday" pennant banner with fairy-tale bluebirds and red rope cording, while a Snow White silhouette [5] on a gold mirror made a theme-perfect backdrop. Desserts included a ruffle cake, "poisonous" apples from Pretzels Pleaze [6], French macarons, and raspberry mousse ladyfingers.

Birthday Girl

The birthday girl, wearing a Snow White-inspired red ribbon headband and party details, including poisonous apples from Pretzels Pleaze [7] and gold bon bons, embellished with Grayce’s monogram.

Invitation and Guest of Honor's Seat

"Our printable invitation [8] was designed to resemble a page from a fairy tale book, with customizations about the birthday girl. Beginning with 'Once upon a time,' and ending with 'Will you live happily ever after?' (as the RSVP), the invitation sets the tone," says Maureen of Anders Ruff.

Cake and Sweets

The ruffle cake was created by Got What It Cakes [9], while the ladies of Anders Ruff made the yellow French macarons with party flags [10].

Dessert Table

More macarons and an antique silver tea pot filled with red holly berries and bluebird cookies from Cookie XChange [11].

More Sweets

Antique silver serving pieces were filled with "poisonous" apple juice and candies from Oh Nuts [12]. Inexpensive circle frames from Michaels were sprayed with vintage gold paint and used as place card holders.

The Happy Guests

Belle, Cinderella, and Snow White hold poisonous apple cupcakes from Cuprazed Cakery [13], topped with a pretzel stick and printable [14] patterned red leaf.

The Royal Table

Vintage gold crowns from Queen Bee Designs [15] were rested on the plates for the children.

Royal Pastries

Cream puffs and macarons were part of the royal pastry display.

Cookies, Cakes, and Potion

Cookie XChange [16] also made cookies to look like gold mirror frames with the graphic initial G for Grayce. Other cute details: cupcakes in vintage silver cups stuffed with pale yellow tulle and crystal glassware filled with blue juice and labeled "fairy tale potion."

Lips Red as a Rose

"The side table held favors and cosmetics for the girls to play with. Red lipstick, which is usually a no-no for 7-year-olds, was allowed at this Snow White bash. How could we have a Snow White character without red lipstick?" says Maureen of Anders Ruff.

Mirror, Mirror

The girls decorated their own gold handheld mirrors with jewels.
