Snowflake Party Photos

Here are a few more photos of the snowflake party from last weekend!


I put out foam snowflakes to be used as coasters - notice the glass of red wine on the left side...hmmm...someone was obviously raised in a barn!


The cake. Oh how we struggled with this cake! I never, ever want to work with fondant again! I don't have the patience for it! The cake started to sag a bit and we couldn't figure out how to make the seams 'go away' so I made all of those little snowballs to cover them!


My friend didn't want the winter wonderland I had in mind but she did say yes to feather boas! Yes those are plastic table cloths *hangs head in shame* budgets made it impossible to invest in cloth ones!


I put those big snowflakes everywhere! I had hundreds of them! You can see where the cake is sagging a bit. We actually cried over this cake!



So there you have it! A restrained effort on my part but my friend enjoyed it and appreciated my help!


Have a fabulous day!

Excellent job...are u sure you didn't used to be an event planner?!
Nothing worse than a small budget getting in the way of a big fabulous vision!
super creative and cute!... and apparently fondant is sooo tricky to work with... but your cake turned out really well!!!

Oh Yum! Everything looked so beautiful! But, I have to agree with the above commenter... Fondant is EVIL!!!

Nikosmommy - I think I am a party planner in this life :O) I love doing it and would love to do it for a living!

Dina - Anytime!


Thanks for appreciating my hate for fondant - I figured after watching every episode of Cake Boss it would be easy! I guess not! Never again!

OMG how pretty.

That is so pretty. I especially like the feather boa, it ties it all together. So pretty.

Town and Country Mom said...

Sweet! And please don't hang your head in shame over the plastic cloths. A good tip I have learned over the years is to check out the fabric stores for remnant pieces that can work as tablecloths for casual events. I have gotten some great fabrics for practically nothing.

Suburban Princess said...

T&C Mom - I would've done that but we dont have any fabric stores around here :O( Sad isn't it!

MCW said...

I think it looks perfect! Love how the colors match your blog :)

Wow! What a pretty party! I am so very impressed about the fondant! I have to say that you are much braver than me!

How fun! Everything looks so pretty! Love the cake!

Suburban Princess said...

MCW - LOL I didnt even think about that when I picked the blog background - I guess it is the time of year for these colours :O)

The cake doesn't look saggy to me. I think it was well worth the Herculean effort! XXOO

melissa said...

You did a fabulous job with the party. I haven't tried fondant yet ... and don't think I will!! The cake looks great, even though it caused so much trouble!

pink green & southern said...

It is simply stunning!!! I love everything! Makes me want to have a party...

Sherrie said...

Everything is lovely! I am not a fan of fondant. It tastes horrible. I don't get why you want something that looks great, but tastes yucky. I am a buttercream frosting girl all the way (don't even get me started on whipped cream frosting-yuck). TFS the great photos!

How adorable, I love how you decorated and glad your party went so well. And yum - even snowflake cookies too!
