Here’s what Jennifer said about planning the party- “With spring coming soon and the strawberry season on the horizon, I’m excited about our new Berry Sweet Strawberry printable birthday collection. All of the beautiful photography work is by Jennifer Schattle Photography. The printable collection features my own Cath Kidston-inspired strawberry background designs, and the collection is offered in blue, pink and green. I wanted something just slightly different than what I’ve seen, so I styled a simple strawberries, lace, and burlap dessert table including strawberry marshmallow pops, strawberry crumble parfaits (a take on the traditional dirt cake!), and strawberry Italian sodas. Also unique to the table are the gorgeous stained glass strawberry cookies by Aymee of The Wacky Cookie Company. The cake was lovingly baked and decorated by my husband. Other contributors to the photo shoot were Emma Lee’s Boutique with her charming hair clips and chunky bead jewelry along with Flutter Berry Studio and her sweet felt strawberries. Many of the party supplies were purchased from Kara’s Party Ideas shop!”
This is what Natalie said about planning the party- “This party was SO fun to create. My client’s last name is Berry so she decided to go with the “Strawberry Theme” for her daughter Braelyn’s 1st birthday party. The adorable party printables designed for her party were done by Lauren Haddox Designs. She does a wonderful job!
We used red, pink, hot pink and green for the color scheme. We also threw in some patterns, stripes, polka dots and gingham. The desserts I created were mini cheesecakes with chocolate strawberries on top, cupcakes were chocolate fudge and vanilla with buttercream frosting, strawberry shaped cake pops, fruit skewers, Oreo pops, chocolate covered strawberries, mini cupcakes and original chocolate and vanilla cake pops.”
This is what Kelli said about planning the party- “I created this Strawberry Shortcake Dessert table for a little girl’s 2nd birthday party. The items that I created on the table included, a homemade Strawberry Shortcake, a 3-tiered French Vanilla cake in the coordinating colors, Strawberry Shortcake cupcakes with Strawberry Buttercream icing and fondant toppers, pink chocolate-covered Strawberries, a Strawberry Ladyfinger cake, Jell-O cookie stacks, Strawberry Shortcake dessert shooters, Strawberry Shortcake cake pops, and “Strawberry” shaped Oreo pops. My sister-in-law hand painted the backdrop.”

I am in love with this VINTAGE STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE THEMED BIRTHDAY PARTY submitted by Nazra Knutsen. So many adorable ideas here!
Nazra said- “My sister, Kennedi, & I wanted to throw a combined party for our daughters, Ella & Mia, whose birthdays are a month a part from each other. Both the girls love Strawberry Shortcake…so we started our party planning with a “Vintage Strawberry Shortcake” theme in mind. I was so excited when I found all the adorable vintage strawberry & Strawberry Shortcake trays, lunch boxes, & tins to include in the decor! We “DIY’d” the pretty garland, hanging strawberries, jam for favor’s, & flower arrangements. Everything came together so perfectly! The birthday girls loved all the strawberries everywhere & had so much fun celebrating their birthdays with all their little friends. One fun element that you can’t see in the photos is that we had strawberry candles lit so when the guests walked into the house, it smelled liked strawberries! Yum!
We want to say a special ‘thanks’ to our other sister, Naomi, & our mom, for helping run errands, picking up stuff for us, & for helping make the jam, garland, & the hanging strawberries! Also, special ‘thanks’ to Jenny from Jenny Cookies for all the ‘berry sweet’ & adorable treats & perfect cakes she made to compliment the theme of the party!”
