I think you’ll love this idea as much as I do! For her daughter Sam’s first birthday, creative mama Jen set up a Sweet Shoppe in a separate room of the house, then kept it “closed” until it was time for dessert. How cute is that!

Here’s the entrance to Sam’s Sweet Shoppe, with a little “closed” sign in front of it. The banner above the door is by A to Zebra Celebrations.

Inside, there’s a truly impressive display of every kind of candy, cookie, cake pop, and sweet treat you can possibly imagine!

This amazing cake (as well as all the other sweets on the table, including the lollipop topiaries) were made by Jen’s friend Amy of Creative Creations by Amy. Talk about talent!

Each item on the table is labeled with an individually personalized buffet card from my shop, and of course there are cupcake wrappers and toppers for the red velvet cupcakes!

Jen made good use of the cupcake toppers and used them to decorate the sticks on the cake pops as well (a great idea!).

Favor tags mark each lollipop cookie for guests to take home.

And here’s beautiful Samantha – truly a vision in pink! (And again, that cake?? Too perfect for words!)

Thank you so much for sharing, Jen! Happy birthday Sam!
