Thank you to Lynlee Beckett of Lynlee’s Petite Cakes, one of our Creative Contributors, for sharing this awesome Miss Piggy in Paris party with us! Hope you enjoy!
Since there is a Muppets revival with the release of the new movie recently, I was inspired to throw a Miss Piggy party! In the upcoming film, Ms. Piggy is working as an editor for French Vogue and I wanted to incorporate fashion, glam and Paris in the details. I’ve seen a lot of parties centered around the classic Barbie silhouette and I thought it would be fun to utilize the same concept. I asked Michele at Intrigue Design Studio to design a silhouette of Miss Piggy, which I also paired with a Chanel-inspired houndstooth pattern and floral graphics from Cupcake Cutiees.
Since the party was taking place in Miss Piggy’s Vogue Closet, I actually set it up in my daughter’s room and utilized her dresser to set up the dessert table. I infused a bit of green throughout to symbolize Kermit the Frog, which also worked well with the light green walls. I created food tags to highlight the “Editor’s Picks”.
The center of the dessert table included Ms. Piggy’s “Top Looks”, showcasing outfits and accessories with fondant on sugar cookies. In a black ornate frame, I carved Miss Piggy’s silhouette out of rice krispy treats and decorated it with fondant and her pearl necklace with flower, matching the graphics.
I also made chocolate Eiffel Tower pops and lipstick cake pops displayed in push pops containers from Cupkate’s Event Design. Also scattered throughout the table were some strawberry cupcakes with black fondant decor.
Lastly, in a jewelry box and nestled within pearl gumballs and chocolate pearl candies were pearl and rock candy rings that I made (adapted from a Martha Stewart tutorial along with a fondant flower brooch.
I had accessories and props available to take glam cover shots, including sunglasses, pearl necklaces and floral pins. I found a chocolate mold for piggy snouts, which were not only great to give away with the favors, but also served as additional photo props! The favor bags included piggy bath salts, notepads and lipstick pens, bubble measuring tape and green Kermit lip gloss.
