Eliya: An Ice Cream Bonanza!

E

I know it’s been a while since my last blog post! Needless to say, things have been quite hectic for the past few weeks that I’ve barely had time to sit down on the computer and just write my thoughts. Nevertheless, I’m here now, and I’m making it up to you with this amazing party I just did. Check out this latest scoop (pun intended) from Party Magic: Eliya’s Ice Cream Bonanza!

I absolutely LOVE the stage setup. Not too muddled and crowded, but still showing tons of color and playfulness! The venue for the party was Wack Wack Banquet Hall.

I think the brick wall on the right side serves as a pleasant contrast to the patterned pink backdrop on the left side. The first thing you will notice though are those CUTE extra-large ice cream standees! They are just OOZING with chocolate!

Another detail I love are those hanging lighted cupcake liners, draped under the roof of the stage:

This is something very simple, easy to do and you can definitely DIY, yet the effect is spectacular! To do this, simply buy assorted cupcake liners, punch a small hole in each, and insert Christmas lights inside! Tada!

I have to say, though, the main attraction to the stage is the jaw-dropping cake made by the amazing Cat Delro of Tazzy Cakes. Take a look at that!

I mean, how could you beat that cup hanging-in-the-air illusion? I was personally waving my arms in the space around the falling chocolate to see if there wasn’t any string attached! Not too mention. Take a look at all the detailed fruits and cream in the cup!

Judging from the look on Eliya’s face in the picture below, Tazzy Cakes nailed it, once again!

And, a big THANK YOU to the great Happy Folks Studio for these amazing pictures. For inquiries, you can email them here, or check out their portfolio here.

Moving on: given the theme of the party, I think it’s important to take a look at the dessert table:

Isn’t that so neat and sweet? Let’s zoom in:

Are those cupcakes? Ice cream? Can’t really tell!

Look at all those variations on a cake pop! Once again, bravo to the creativity of Chef Nikki of Simply Paris!

Take a look at the picture above, at those cupcakes with cherry and chocolate wafer on top, which looks SO MUCH like ice cream. Isn’t that swell!

This one above was a real hit: blueberry cheesecake in kid-portioned shot glasses!

Now, let’s move on to another section that I love. The photo-op!

For this area, we conceptualized an ice cream shop, complete with all the necessary ingredients:

As part of the entrance setup, we thought that it would be fun to make a sort message board, where all the guests could write down their greetings to Eliya!

Overall, everyone had a jolly great time, especially because of the entertainment program! Take a look at all the fun below!
