Mom & I hosted our annual table at the Tables of Plenty fundraiser this past weekend. I have a difficult time remembering how many we have put together but I “think” this was my 9th table?, could be 10 but I just don’t remember. Old age … what can I say.
As I was putting the photos together I realized that I never posted last years photos. Hmmm … not sure why?, but here they are. Last year we did a cupcake theme which didn’t turn out as cute I had hoped. Maybe that is why I didn’t post them? I think that the round tables generally look too empty while the rectangle ones too full. Not a huge problem but I am pretty sure that was my issue with last year, looked too empty. Anyway … here goes nothing.
That was a pretty pink year huh? This years theme was less pink. You will never guess the theme. Ready?, it was SEWING! Shocking right? What can I say, I just really love sewing right now. Here is what our table looked like …
Cute right? I should have gotten a shot of the center of the table … it was full of rick-rack, zippers, snaps, etc. and our favors. Really full, but cute.
Those button cookies were a huge hit, and though I can’t say they were effortless, they weren’t as time-consuming as they may look.
I found a picture tutorial without words on-line somewhere and just adapted it to use what I had. I used a small biscuit cutter (pampered chef) for the cookie and the top of my pepper shaker (which was empty) to make the second circle indentation and a pastry decorator tip for the holes. Two batches of dough, two hours and 225 cookies later and I was done.
Our guest favor this year was a pin cushion … which were all different, but equally fun.
And this year we had kids … and what better way to close this post that will mean little to most people than pictures if them.
Thanks for stopping by!
