Back 2 School Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids

There is nothing about this table that I don’t love.  Leoni from Just Call Me Martha down under sent us this table she created for her daughter’s 4th birthday party.  The theme of the party was Back to School since Australia’s summer break is about to end.  Leoni told us that she took her inspiration from our Back to School Bake Sale.  This table has so many creative elements.  The use of the chalkboard for both the linen, backdrop, and milk tags is so clever.  I love the pencils as sticks for the toffee apples, the cookie apples on the tree, and the use of books as vessels. Also, how fun do those pencil rolls look?  The alphabet “play snacks” {see below} and math cupcakes are so cute.  I always say, those ladies down under do an amazing job, and this one is no exception!  I would give this table an A+!

    What are the pencil rolls made of? Very Very cool party! I will be recreating this one for teacher appreciation in a few short weeks! You Rock!!!

  • Natalie

    Where do you buy the cute glasses that hold the milk? If you could email me that would be great.

  • Amanda, the pencil rolls were made from mini tootsie rolls and fondant
    Natalie, the mini bottles were bought from Bed Bath & Table, but Sharnel Dollar Design also has them in her shop, as does Little Big Company
