We had a successful party for my oldest last Friday and then left for the BEACH! More on the beach later, today I wanted to share some party decor pics and an alternative to cake.
This is the birthday girl who is not fond of cake. I know, who doesn't like cake...I never said my children weren't weird! So, instead of cake this year she decided she wanted pie. Cool, I LOVE pie. Her party was at the lake, so I had just a small table to add decor and I needed a way to dress up pie. Here is a peek at the party decor table.
I have been placing plates on top of glasses for a quick cake stand for years, but I wanted something more festive. So after a quick trip to Goodwill for plates and glasses and picking up some spray paint I quickly created some sweet little dessert stands.
I set the plates on top of coordinating glasses and I was finished. Now, if I had been worried about the stand being wobbly I would have hot glued the two together, but I live dangerously and wanted these to be stored easily as well!
Oh all of this cute little jars are pies in a jar, from the cookbook Our Best Bites.
