Happy Summer Everyone!! It’s Autumn here from Autumn Lynn’s Chocolate Sins!! This month I am so excited to celebrate the official beginning of summer as well as share my Elmo’s Picnic in the Park dessert table!!!
Since Elmo is so popular I really wanted to add a few other elements to the party!!! I thought why not add picnic baskets and a few ants here and there!! As always, Dimpleprints had just the party printables that I needed to get the job done!! I opted for no backdrop for this party since I had beautiful Lake Erie in the background!!
One of the easiest sweets table items to make is sugared marshmallows!! Simply insert a toothpick into the marshmallow dip in water and roll in sugar, let dry for one hour and insert the party straw of your choice!! Super easy and cost effective!!! I am a big believer that each every sweets table needs sugar cookies..how adorable are these picnic basket sugar cookies?? I added little “napkins” to small baskets and filled them with red licorice bites!! Since this was an Elmo themed picnic I had to have at least one edible Elmo element…chocolate lollipops did a perfect job!!
I made small party cones to hold the cherry flavored popcorn my hubby and I had made a week ahead of time!! This popcorn was super easy and cheap to make and was a huge hit with the party goers!! The cake pops were red velvet and adorned with little ants….of course!! I used super fun Sparkle Sticks to add a little extra bling to the cake pops!! I love how the turquoise and red work so well together!!
The table also featured vanilla mini donuts dipped in red and turquoise sugar!! The donuts didn’t love the heat so much but they still tasted super yummy!! The best element of the table was the cake!! The cake was displayed coming out of the top of a picnic basket and featured Elmo with his very own picnic basket!!
The party favors were little baskets also lined with matching fabric from the party!! I filled them with bubbles, a small beverage, and a package of cookies!! The kids loved playing with the bubbles and had a small snack to take home with them!!! Did you notice the party poms used throughout the table…these poms added the punch of color that I need to the front of the party table, the top of the cake, and the front of the favor display..get your party poms here!!
