Welcome to my table scape of shattered dreams. I had such big plans for my Mom’s 50th birthday party. I made a big pinwheel backdrop to hang above my white console table which would have held all my desserts and a cute banner underneath that. I had giant pinwheels I had made to stick in the grass on both sides of the dessert table.
Unfortunately I hadn’t counted on the dirt being rock hard or the massive winds that ripped down my back drop each time we tried to hang it. So sad. Here is how it turned out anyway:
Pinwheel Birthday Cake
Mini Carrot Cakes with Cream Cheese Frosting.
I found these cute mini forks at Hobby Lobby.
Hand Painted fondant wafers to top the cupcakes.
Mint Chocolate Cake Pops
I So wish this would have worked out. This bent in half mess of paper would have been really cute hanging above my white dessert table but the wind kept ripping it down.
Please notice the banner that was meant to hang under the desserts. It was supposed to read ‘CELEBRATE’, but we lost the R somewhere along the way and so now it just says ‘CELEBATE’.
I don’t know what you’re talking about epic fail, that thing was dang cute, hung or not hung! I love the pinwheel cake, cutest thing ever! I love pinwheels, I made a pinwheel baby quilt. How did you make the paper pinwheels though? Is there a pattern? Those are so cute!!!!
Thanks Ranae! I bet your piwheel quilt is darling! Here is a tutorial on how to make the pinwheels: http://www.dreamgreendiy.com/2013/06/05/a-diy-paper-pinwheel-tutorial/ It’s easier to look at the pics than to explain, haha!
