Back in January, I read that Emerald was Pantone's Color of the Year for 2013 and my imagination went wild.  The first thing I thought of? "The Wizard of Oz" and its Emerald City.  What a fun theme for a party!  Here's my inspiration board for the cake and cookie bar I dreamed up that is loosely inspired by the classic film.

  1. Joyful Cake with a simple blue ribbon border at the base garnished with a sugar paste poppy
  2. mini cheesecakes topped with strawberry slices (the strawberries look just like little hearts!)
  3. cupcakes with a mix of green and white frosting, all garnished with green sanding sugar... I'm thinking that sweet corn cupcakes with cream cheese frosting would be perfect
  4. mini pavlovas topped with kiwi
  5. caramel lady apples
  6. haystack cookies
  7. lemon bars (for our yellow brick road)
  8. rainbow cookies
  9. for the floral design, arrangements of sunflowers  (not only do they look like a lion's mane but sunflowers are the state flower for Kansas!)...
  10. and a couple of "ruby" red lady slipper orchids
  11. for the table setting, vintage green depression glass plates
  12. galvanized metal cake stands and platters
  13. reclaimed log serving pieces... like this log bowl from Loyal Loot - shown here in Pale Sage Green (I discovered this fantastic company on
  14. green glass cake stands... like the one I spied in the window at Atmosphere on Smith Street in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn
  15. and we'll wash everything down with ice cold water garnished with fresh mint and cucumber slices served in these beautiful green pressed glass high balls from Rosanna
  16. finally, a blue gingham runner to go on the farm table where all of our delectable sweets would be displayed

What would you include on a "Wizard of Oz" themed dessert table?
