Strawberry Shortcake Birthday Party

strawberry-short-cake-dessert-table This “berry cute” Strawberry Shortcake Birthday Party, styled by Jessie of A Stylish Affair By Jessie, is like stepping into Strawberry Short Cake’s whimsical world beneath the strawberry patch!

Jessie started planning her daughter’s Strawberry Shortcake Birthday Party six months ago. She knew exactly what she wanted. Her favorite character from the show is the pink cat, Custard. So, while she wanted the party to be inspired by Strawberry Shortcake, she really wanted it to be a pink cat birthday party. She also had another request: rhinestones on EVERYTHING! Jessie bedazzled just about anything she could: the forks, the menu cards, etc. Just about everything had at least one rhinestone on it!

She spent an entire Saturday afternoon on Pinterest and Google Images deciding on the perfect cake. “We were so blessed to have the most amazing cake baker. She really listened to my soon to be 4-year-old. She treated her like a VIP client and I can’t tell you how much I appreciated it. Most people don’t understand how much of a vision my little one has”, said Jessie.
