We had a glimpse of summer with our Monday post..and today, even though it is cold outside, this table warmed our hearts. We had to share this table that was submitted to us by Stephanie from Spaceships and Laser Beams. Stephanie created this table to put on their Etsy website to sell their cute DIY Printable Party Supplies. I am loving the use of yarn like the yarn “craspedia,” the yarn topiary towers, and the use of yarn to decorate the desserts. Stephanie’s inspiration came from trying to come up with a sweets table idea for her son’s birthday that would not garnish any “dirty looks” from the other parents. The outcome is an adorable, yet healthy, table full of sweet treats. Here are just a few of the modifications that she used. Instead of Cake Pops, Stephanie had “No Cake” cake pops that were made from a concoction of peanut butter (be careful of tiny guests that might have peanut allergies) and graham crumbs formed into balls and piped with a tiny bit of chocolate. The Snowflake Pudding was homemade rice pudding. The Winter Crisp was a combination of baked apples, blueberries and blackberries. For the crisp part, she simply used crushed pretzels, a little butter and brown sugar. Everyone knows I am a huge fan of the sweet and salty! So sweet. Enjoy.
Sweet Note: Because Stephanie and crew believe that happy childhoods are about making every day feel special, 5% of all her Etsy sales goes to the YMCA Strong Kids campaign — to help young boys grow in to strong young men.
