Vintage WWII July 4th Dessert Table

Vintage July 4th

Like Marcie, I had family who fought in WWII so I was thrilled to see a July 4th table that truly honors those that have fought for our freedom. Designed by Marcie of Celebrating Moments by Marcie, this dessert table not only features a variety of sweet goodies but vintage touches from the typewriter and suitcases to the framed photos of soldiers!

Marcie used lots of her own props (including the typewriter, suitcases, and fan) as well as lots of props borrowed from friends (chalkboard, scale, trike, etc). Almost all of Marcie’s uncles fought in WWII so this was a very neat way to honor them and their generation. Props around your house can jazz up party tables and save money! So take a look in your basement, attic, kid’s rooms, etc for a variety of fun props for party tables – you might be surprised what you will find!

I also LOVE the flag cookies that even have a “vintage” feel to them! They were made by Marilyn Higgins of Whatever Whimsy!

  1. This display is gorgeous!!! I love the vintage look and every detail, but especially the framed photo that gives this table such a personal touch and brings tears to my eyes! Beautiful job!!

  2. This is so wonderful. I love the feel of the entire party/dessert table. I would love to do something like this as well.

    I wanted to also ask how did she do the pinwheels on the cupcakes. They look edible too. Extremely cute.

  3. Thanks so much for the kind comments!!! They so blessed my heart and of course thanks to Courtney! As always it is a honor to be featured on Pizzazzerie <3

  4. Thanks Pizzazzerie for the feature! Great Job Marcie for an awesome display!!! Love the way all the pieces came together! You know it is always a pleasure creating with you. So much FUN!!!

    And MaryBeth, yes the cupcake pinwheels are edible and made from marshmallow fondant. Different colors were layered, then texture added to one side, and next they were cut out and shaped. I then put them onto lollipop sticks to add height and give that true pinwheel feel. They came out so cute and can be done if fun colors to coordinate with your party. I might just have to start selling them on Etsy! :)
