Marilyn Monroe Inspired Senior Prom Table

When a good friend asked me to do a sweet’s table for her daughter, who was going to Senior Prom, I was thrilled!

The feel she was looking for was Marilyn Monroe, glitz, glam, pink, diamonds, well, I think you get the picture.

Her dress was a pretty blush pink which inspired the color theme.


I started with an upholstered backdrop, which I made, and covered the buttons with a glittery, silver paper to add a little sparkle.

Next, I made the flower poms out of pretty pink & white polka dot napkins and added

curled silver, satin ribbon to finish the look.


Here’s how to make the poms yourself.

I hung a custom made sign, with their names, in the center to finish off the backdrop.


I made wooden stairs to display the pretty prom dress cookies and sprinkled them with a few more diamonds.



 For the gents, chocolate mustaches on a stick, were decked out in a diamond stud bow tie!


The mustaches were a perfect photo op for later too!


The cupcakes were topped with a large fondant pink bow which is reminiscent of Marilyn’s dress, in the video,

Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend.


More cupcakes were topped with a pretty pink fondant flower and small edible pearl center.

Pink satin bows adorned with diamond stunned bows dressed up our vintage stand.

Now, since our guest of honor are  seniors in high school and looking to their futures,

Fortune Cookies were the perfect addition to provide a fun little insight of what’s to come for them.

 Pink chocolate and sugar glammed up this yummy treat!

Pink Cotton Candy, decked out in diamond adorned boxes, kept it fun for the teens.


Pearlized Pink & Silver Gumballs were glammed up by adding diamond studded brooches to pink satin ribbons and served in giant wine glasses.



Yummy cake pops were the perfect place to show-off the names of the cute couple.

Hope you have many “Sweet Memories” of your special dance, Morgan & Chris!
