Adria and I are seriously obsessed with Buddy the Elf (Elf the Movie!) Will Farrell is one of my favorite actors and we have been wanting to share this party with you for the past year. Now that it is totally seasonally appropriate, we are excited to share this party planned by Dina of Deliciously Darling Events!
Take a gander at the adorable photos and then read on for her fabulous brunch / party details. What a fun theme this would be for Christmas morning or any party!
Some things we love about this party:
– Push pops filled with yogurt with fondant letters spelling BUDDY
– White chocolate lollipops that spell out ELF
– Mini cupcakes with Elf hat toppings made out of frosting and fondant
Here are some party details by Dina herself!
“ELF has to be my favorite holiday movie of all times and thought it would be the perfect inspiration for our annual holiday Brunch. I mixed the traditional red and green holiday color pallete with a little baby blue to create this cheerful get together. I was so excited to work with the fabulous Anders Ruff Designs on the inspired coordinating printables. The “Buddy the Elf” style silhouette was my favorite part!
The main Brunch table consisted of traditional brunchy foods: savory mini quiches and roll ups, bagels and cream cheese, and lots of cakes and donuts! Being in the south, no table is complete without some Chick-fil-a Chicken Mini’s (which were the hit of the brunch). I wanted the brunch table to display Buddy’s journey from the North Pole to New York. Buddy passes through the Candy Cane Forest (the peppermint brownie cake pops) and through the sea of swirly twirly gumdrops (pastries with fondant gumdrops) then through the Lincoln Tunnel (the chocolate covered oreo tunnel).
The dessert table had beautiful Buddy the elf fondant cupcake toppers, delicious full size and mini cupcakes, amazing Buddy the Elf sugar cookies, and assorted cookies & French Macarons. I just love the E-L-F lollipops! So perfect and absolutely delicious!
The beverage station had Reindeer Root Beer, Orange Juice, Champagne and Milk – perfect to wash down all those sweets! Naturally, we served the “World’s Best Cup of Coffee”. I had to resist the urge to constantly congratulate guests on drinking the World’s Best Cup of Coffee a la Buddy the Elf. Finally, a little hot cocoa station is a must for holiday parties.”
