Poodle Party

A couple of weeks ago I shared this poodle skirt table topper I made out of felt.  This was a total no sew project.  I suggested it would be great in a teen's room or little girl's room, but today I am doing a tablescape with it.  I found this tissue paper pom pom kit by Martha Stewart at a yard sale.  I can't believe how easy these are to do.

 My resident baker was unavailable to help me with these cute layer cakes that were Pinterest inspired, so left to fend for myself, they are sort of leaning towers, but I think they are adorable.  At least the ones on Pinterest were.
 The Paris plates came from Home Goods, and I think the black and white is perfect with this theme.  I have had them for a few months and have shared them with you before. 

Now, as much as I would love to take credit for this tablescape theme, years ago my friend Judi did a 50's tea party and she used old phonograph records as the charger plates.  Cute, huh?  Well, I picked up a couple for a dollar a couple of weeks ago and I can't remember where I put them.  But if you want to use this idea, the albums were way cute!
 My daughter purchased the little poodle picks about a year ago especially for a tablescape theme and I have been hoarding saving them ever since.
 The cookies are store bought vanilla wafers that I dipped in pink candy coating.  These were so easy and another idea I got off of Pinterest.
 How long has it been since you've had a Hostess pink snowball?  It's been years for me, but I thought they were so apropos for the occasion.
 This was my birthday card from my daughter this year.  It was also a perfect accessory for today's table.  An invitation like this would be spectacular!
Of course, I had to add some itty-bitty polka dots and some applique pink poodles too.  Thanks for stopping by.  Help yourself to the cake if you dare.   I'm clearly not the baker around here.

Maggie-That is really, really cute. I have seen the record as a charger somewhere before, too, and thought it was a really sweet idea. Your little cakes are just darling. Blessings to you- xo Diana

Oooh-la-la! Such a pretty table, Maggie! Love the French themed plates. Your cakes look fine to me. Not being a baker either, I'm just glad when things taste good!

This is the cutest thing ever! I'm going to put this on my list of things to do with granddaughters. And on top of the list will be the pink snowballs. Yes. One of my favorite foods. :@

Dam cute. I have a poodle skirt that doesn't fit anymore, so I'd have to wear it to the party as a hat.

Adorable setting and I love the colour combo.

This is so cute. I saw those plates at Home Goods. It was hard to pass them up! They are so cute. I love the poodle skirt tablecloth!

Very Stylish! The poodle table topper is the perfect basis for this whimiscal table! The darling poodles are certainly walking the streets of Paris. The pink pom poms add lightness to your tablescape. Cute Birthday card!

Thanks, Pam
