Up, Up and Away!

An iconic power plant anchored in downtown Austin, the Seaholm Lawn is now one of this city’s newest event spaces. This beautiful green lawn is surrounded by the area’s classic art deco architecture fused with unique and modern finishes. What better way to formally introduce this new event space than to throw a launch party – sweets and balloons, included!

Planned by the phenomenal Red Velvet Events and designed by the fabulous WHITT Experience, the Seaholm Lawn was transformed from an empty lawn into a community backyard filled with snacks, cocktails and small bites being served from Peached Tortilla and us – The Cupcake Bar!

We featured our brand spankin’ new floating treat trays, branded and customized just for this event! We worked with our partner, Nate the Great, in adding the giant balloon art to our trays mimicking Disney Pixar’s classic “Up” scene, truly giving the illusion of floating trays. Guests enjoyed being served red velvet cupcakes and caramel apples in such a unique and fun way! Each tray was branded with the event logo, to give it a special touch.

However, the best part was the surprise guests enjoyed when the sun went down and balloons lit up. It was the perfect glow to light up the trays and keep the party festive into the night.

And, the gold goes to…

The Cupcake Bar had an amazing opportunity to be part of Jacob’s Bar Mitzvah planned by the extraordinary Caplan Miller Events. The JW Marriott’s ballrooms were draped in red and checkerboard along with countless steel city props, one would believe they stepped out of a hotel and onto an F1 racetrack.  There were tents with activities and different food stations, guests were blown away at the imagination and creativity. The kid’s ballroom loaded with games from game plan entertainment,  and incredible music from Texas Pro DJ! The adults ballroom included incredible floral from Botanical 9, bands and the most gorgeous lounge furniture from Townsley Designs! Jacob’s Bar Mitzvah should take the gold for most theatrical party of the year!

Credit to our lovely cupcake bartenders who dressed the part with race car jumpsuits and bright red hair kept the guests energized the best way we know how – with SUGAR! We created a custom doughnut wall with J and N (Jacob’s initials) shaped doughnuts along with tire doughnuts and the fans (aka Jacob’s guests), loved the themed pastries. We also served caramel apples, each unique and made to order allowing the guests to pick their own apples, drizzles, and toppings.
