Moms definitely deserve to have their cakes and to eat them, too! Indulge your favorite mom friends with a Mother/Daughter Cake and Champagne drop in party and treat them to something sweet. I set up the dessert table with cakes, cupcakes, and cotton candy in front of a wall of playful art by artist Hunt Slonem. To play off of the wall of art, I used items from Hunt’s incredibly fun Hop Up Shop! I added a code for you to use at the bottom so be sure to grab it before you shop!

The cotton candy was topped with edible paper wafer butterflies and served in an antique Majolica vase.

A variety of small cakes makes for a fabulous and impressive display!

Plates for the daughters were adorable bunny portrait plates by Hunt Slonem’s Hop Up Shop – served on a silver tray.

For the moms, I placed a stack of dainty vintage plates- and included silver dessert forks for everyone…

Serving cupcakes along with the cakes makes it easy for the younger set to handle the treats- and plus they just love the size of cupcakes!

I used a bunny bar bowl to hold flowers to reflect the bunnies on the wall. I often use it for serving small snacks or candies, but it works beautifully as a vase, too! I also use these bowls on my bar cart. Speaking of bar carts, this is where I set up the champagne and drinks area for the mothers and daughters to enjoy a beverage.

I love using a bunny portrait plate as a wine  and champagne coaster. I also think the bottle looks fabulous with a bunny napkin!

I tied in the bunnies and butterflies on the bar cart, too. Notice the straws have butterflies similar to the cotton candy? They are edible, wafer paper, butterflies that I add to the straws to amp up the delight of the party.

The bunny glasses are always a big hit with everyone. And, they can even be used as a votive candle holder! They are created to withstand cold and hot temperatures.
