The Red Balloon Party - Cake Table.


My two children (as well as my husband and I) are avid fans of the 1956 Oscar winning French film, "The Red Balloon" which was directed by Albert Lamorisse. Last year for her birthday, my daughter's only request was a big red balloon and a red velvet cake. She still really enjoys the movie, so we thought this year we'd celebrate her turning four with a Red Balloon party.


We served two different cakes for the party. One was a bare four layered red velvet cake with fresh flowers as decoration. The other cake was a labor of love. I saw this beautiful crepe cake on the internet, and I knew it would be perfect for a French inspired party. Heather gives wonderful and easy to follow directions on her blog for how to make and assemble the cake. After a quick trip to World Market, I was introduced to my new favorite product - Lotus Biscoff Spread (I love the texture of the crunchy version).


While I was browsing my local Home Goods store, I came across this bright green Eiffel Tower that I knew had to come home with me. A can of white spray paint, and it was ready for our cake display. I tried to pull in elements from the movie, onto the display table, so I took a plastic horse and painted it white as well. I purchased the large red balloon online from GroopDealz.
