For my son's baptism I decided to create a Noah's Ark themed dessert/appetizer table. I was inspired by Amy Atlas of Amy Atlas Events. She features AMAZING guest dessert tables on her blog http://blog.amyatlas.com/. Check it out sometime if you have a chance.
First I started by deciding on the desserts and appetizers I wanted to serve. I definitely wanted to have cake so I made this 6" layered cake. I created the animals with royal icing and the ark was sculpted with Rice Krispie treats and covered with fondant.
I also made homemade chex mix and poured it in these cute miniature glasses. I added green and orange ribbon around the stems to spice them up.
For drinks I purchased lime and tangerine Izze Sodas. To keep with the Noah's Ark theme I wrapped them with this playful animal paper and added green and orange ribbons to identify the flavor.
I also offered candy sticks. I placed them in a hurricane glass jar which I typically use to hold a candle. I thought this was a unique way to display the candy sticks and the corks coordinated well with the wooden serving platters.
I wanted to include at least one thing that was healthy so I filled a trifle bowl with fresh veggies.
The table turned out to be a hit at the party! If anyone is interested in a dessert or appetizer table for a party let me know. It was so much fun to make and there are endless possibilities!
