Patricia Couteiro of Com Amor and Carinho brought a splendid summer beach theme party in a refreshing color palette of sea blue, green and sand to life. From the whimsical backdrop of paper fans, to delightful starfish cookies, there is so much we loved about this cool party. Please do come along and see it for yourself.
Set against a magnificent backdrop of quaint paper fans in an assortment of sizes, is a spectacular spread of delectable treats in the coolest blues and greens. Beautiful cupcakes, blue lemonade, a sea-worthy cake, macaroons and cake pops are some of the desserts neatly arranged on a light, breezy table cloth that reminds us of the foamy ocean waves dancing in the breeze.
How original are these cupcake cases that weave together the magical colors of the ocean in a layered wavy fashion! A sprinkling of sea blue decorates the luscious white frosting, and a starfish topper adds the finishing touches to this decadent dessert.
The dreamy sands of the beach come alive in this charming cookie arrangement on a sandy base, which is authentic in every way. Elegant starfish and butter cookies with happy sea-horses are vying for attention, but I think the sea shells are the stars of the show in their exquisite originality and elegance. Dessert labels custom created in the color palette form a beautiful addition to the arrangement.
Refreshing blue lemonade is served to the guests in clear glass bottles. Notice the remarkable addition of the blue and white chevron straws with light blue sea-horses dangling at the very top? It is simply superb!
This Lime and Lemon Cake with Italian meringue buttercream, is a masterpiece of blue and green hues that exemplify the ocean’s splendor. The cake is adorned with paper fans as the topper, while a sprinkling of sand, a buoyant sea-horse and two sleepy starfish decorate the base.
These soft and sculpted white cake pops look divine, perched on a white square plate with wavy edges. The sea creatures on the side and the blue sea-horses on the sticks tell us how all the details are simply perfect.
Orange and sea green stripes decorate eclairs with mint and lime cream. They look too good to eat!
Guests take home sand colored and blue French macaroons with delicious Pina Colada cream. Packed into transparent boxes with a burlap twine and a sea-horse striped card, they are perfect for an after-party treat.
Milk chocolate bars in custom-made covers are arranged on a base of transparent pebbles. Opaque blue starfish and sea shells help to recreate the ocean floor effect with perfection.
Now, wasn’t that an awesome ocean-theme summer beach party? Just looking at these pictures reminds me of the swishing of frothy sea waves, full of fun and frolic. We must appreciate Patricia for her perfect eye for detail and superb execution of ideas. It was a job well done indeed!
