What a fun birthday party idea! My client wanted a slumber party themed dessert table for her little girl. But the party was during the day and no one was sleeping over. Hmm... That one was a head scratcher. Basically the kiddos were coming over in their jammies to enjoy some morning-after breakfast-themed treats. The hostess really wanted a parfait bar, as it's one treat her little one enjoys. She also requested a "cereal bar" and the rest was left to my imagination. Check out our pics to see the rest of all the sweet details. Enjoy!

The birthday girl, Sofia, is really into Curious George so the hostess requested we incorporate him into the dessert table somehow. I lucked out and used my little one's "Curious George and the Birthday Surprise" book propped against a sweet pink and white striped pillow at the head of the "bed." She also wanted one of our Bedtime Story Sugar Cookies to stand out and be special just for Sofia, so we did a lone Curious George cookie amongst a plateful of Eric Carle's "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" inspired ones.

Cereal boxes tied up with personalized pink spoons.
Our breakfast inspired birthday cake is maybe one of my all time favorite Oh, Sugar! creations. The birthday girl specifically wanted her cake topped with a stack of flapjacks and the rest was up to us. Well, no way could I resist making bacon-shaped cookies to spell out Sofia's name, and I finally got to use the random gummy fried eggs I found at TJ Maxx awhile ago. (I KNEW I'd find a use for them!)

These silly things were the surprise hit of the party!

Happy birthday Sofia!
