GNOMEO AND JULIET SUMMER GARDEN PARTY
Have you seen the super cute GNOMEO and JULIET movie this summer? Well, it’s a cute one and the talented Lynlee Beckett of Lynlee’s Petite Cakes decided it was SO cute that she had to throw a Gnomeo + Juliet themed Summer Garden Party for her daughter and friends! Inspired by all the hilarious + gaudy lawn decorations featured in the movie, Lynlee captured the movie details in her table + desserts! Her daughter and friends enjoyed LAWN GAMES, Topiary Cake Balls (so cute!), and Ice Cream Gnome Bar, and the cutest cupcake cakes I have EVER seen….
Lynlee shared lots of details about this darling party’s decorations + activities!
“The story of Gnomeo and Juliet is based on the classic Shakespeare play, but set in the lawns of two families… of gnomes! The decor followed this premise from gnome hats to pinwheels and all things lawn-related! The dessert table was centered by cupcakes and a lawn flamingo, separating the blues’ (Montagues) and the reds’ (Capulets) houses/lawns. Aside from cupcakes, I also made daisy flower cookies and topiary cake balls.
I designed the paper goods with graphics from Dreamloft and the backdrop was a piece of artificial grass with “G+J” inside a heart “mowed” into it. We also had an ice cream “gnome” bar (with cones dressed in gnome hats – template from Martha Stewart, as well as a snow cone machine to make “snow gnomes”, to help us stay cool!
I found a great idea from The Party Animal to have lawn mower races (like the movie) and was able to find lawn mowers that blew bubbles! We also had “weed killer spray guns” for water play!”
