Fancy Nancy Birthday Party Part 2

Sorry it has been so long since my last post. Life has been super busy lately with Easter, birthday parties, vacations, Mother's Day, my birthday and that's just part of it. This Momma is tired! I'm going to try to get the blog caught up as quickly as I can.

So, back to my sweet little Emme Claire's 2nd birthday soiree. The theme was Fancy Nancy and was it fancy? Oh yes indeed! I tried to make it as fancy as Nancy herself would have liked it. :)

This post will be about the food and drink tables. (see the cake and cookie table in the previous post)

This table held things like tiara and flower shaped peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and ham and cheese sandwiches, the chocolate fountain, fresh fruits and dip, marshmallows, pretzels and rice krispy treats for dipping in the chocolate, kiddie party mix and pink candy coated marshmallow pops.

This food table held the warm ham and cheese sandwiches, fresh veggies and dip, Nuts & Bolts party mix, Ranch cheese ball and crackers, corn dip and chips.

On the drink table I had a pitcher of strawberry lemon infused water, a pitcher of sweet tea and a large dispenser of watermelon lemonade. You can see the printed cups I ordered that read Emme's 2nd Birthday and had purple polka dots on them. Also on the right are the pink and white striped paper straws and the little name tag flags that go on the straws. On each of the food and drink tables you can see a Fancy Nancy puzzle that I put a feather boa around the edges of and displayed them on small easels. On this drink table pic you can see one of the hard back books I also used for decoration. The little sign sitting behind the straws says Drinks and below the picture of Nancy it says Remember, Pinky's Up!

Here is a closer shot of some of the food. You can see the food label tents used to let everyone know what they were eating. :) Also I found those super cute little paper cups on Etsy and thought they would be perfect for people to put the party mix in. Across the back of the table you can see some small bags of party mix. I made those up for guests to take home if they wanted.

Here you can see the marshmallow lollipops I made that I dipped in pink candy melts and then dipped in different sprinkles. Also the kiddie party mix is fun for little ones. It includes things like Cheerios, Goldfish, Skittles, M&M's, Life Saver Gummies, mini marshmallows and Teddy Grahams.

Mmmm, chocolate fountain and all the fixings. :)

I had lots of purple and pink plates, bowls, napkins, forks and spoons. I also had some of the theme printed Fancy Nancy plates and napkins.

Melanie Fuglaar designed the food label tents for me as well as the signs I used to decorate with around the party. One of those signs is on the Drinks table. She does a fantastic job and you can contact her via Facebook or Etsy, look up Innovative Invitations. She is in West Monroe, LA. She is also the person who designed the party invitations which you can see in the previous post.

I ordered the personalized cups from Nanette's Notes of Monroe, LA.
