Every time I do one of these tablescapes I think it might be my favorite… but this one really might be. I brought in some real height to this table (which could work for a Valentine’s Day table or a Christmas morning breakfast if you substituted the cupcakes and brownies for muffins (or not if you like to eat brownies for breakfast like I do).
AJ asked me why I’m planning months ahead… I had intended to do every month in one post and realized it was a lot of work to do each one sooo for my own sanity I’m spreading it out… I’m not trying to make you enjoy Christmas or Valentine’s Day when Thanksgiving hasn’t even happened yet. I’m not like Macy’s decorating for Christmas before Halloween.
I’ve been brainstorming about Drew’s 1st Birthday and know that I’m going to use upside down balloons somewhere so this table was sort of a test run for me to work out some design kinks… I got the balloons for 1 penny / bag at Michaels. Aren’t you jealous? I bought every red balloon in the store. 🙂
I wanted a very kid friendly party which is why I went with the milk and sweets set up… AJ is happily enjoying the brownies (one after running yesterday and one with ice cream after dinner) and the cupcakes are unfortunately for a luncheon after a funeral for a sweet man from our church. I’m not just making food for a table display… I’m trying to reuse. 🙂
I made these mini pom poms in about six minutes… I’m not joking, they were so easy. You just wrap yard around a large serving spoon and tie a piece of yard directly in the middle, slid it off the fork, cut the folded over edges and spread out your mini pom poms! This was one of those Pinterest projects I applied to real life.
