Spring Tablescape

Sunday, February 21, 2010

I am so excited about some of my upcoming parties!!!! I'm hosting a Mad Hatter Tea Party this spring for all of our friends and relatives.... I can hardly wait! Could it be tomorrow? Please!?!?? I am also throwing a Bumble Bee Baby Shower for a good friend in July! Putting together this Spring Table allowed me to visualize these two parties and determine what supplies and decor I still need.

Tablescape.
Aw. Isn't he the cutest little bumble bee?
I filled the larger glass jar with green glass rocks that I had picked up for my Asian Birthday Party, topped it off with a candle and wrapped it in ribbon.
Mmmm... Mini Eggs! Lets just say, they didn't last long!
Paper fortune cookies. More examples can be found here and here.
Another angle.
The goods.
I had to come up with SOMETHING to fill this tray with AND coordinate with my colour scheme! Celery, snap peas, yellow pepper and dip. Brilliant!

Mmmmm.... cupcakes.
I can be pretty thrifty when it comes to tableware. Most of my glasses, jars, plates and serving trays were gifts, borrowed or found whilst treasure hunting!
Don't these look divine? Kudos to all those cupcake decorators out there! It's HARD!
I found these reusable silicone cupcake liners on sale at Superstore. SCORE! I should have bought more...
Practicing with my new 1M decorating tip.
Pretty ribbon from my stash.
Thanks for taking a look! My real inspiration for creating this tablescape is Michelle's Easter Tablescapes and Spring Parties CONTEST over at Maddycakes Muse. There are some really fun and creative parties being submitted... go check it out!
