Love Is Sweet Dessert Table (via 100 Layer Cake)

Any combination of bunting, sweets and love basically comes together for a solid win. Jen and Cody had such a pretty dessert table. I love the large flags in the front.

Favor Boxes (via lorajean's magazine)

It almost doesn't matter what's inside when the box is this cute. Lorajean's Magazine blog has a folding tutorial. You could get three analogous colors of yarn and wrap the boxes in different combinations. Such a pretty table! These would also make pretty favor boxes for a bridal shower. If it's a bachelorette party simply use black paper and wrap with red sequin ribbon or something fishnet-y :)

Drafts into Design

This is the final week before my sister's engagement party and it will be a busy one. The cooking is the part with the most variables. I love cooking but baking comes in no way naturally. Also, I didn't take into account temperature. Tonight I tried to create the cake and cookie stands and well, let's say the glue needs about 10 degrees warmer for the MINIMUM bonding time. I'm trying to do everything outside under cover because the e6000 glue is pretty toxic smelling. Here's hoping.

Rough Design

Armed with this sketch, I braved both the returns and the house holds sections at IKEA. I think I have what I need. This weekend will be a baking/crafting explosion as I will be testing recipes and creating as much as I can in preparation for next week.

Must not forget napkins. Or plates. Also glasses.

I am going to go to Fred Meyer and get ingredients that make me look like I'm on a one track path to diabetes. Actually I probably am regardless of the marshmallows, frosting and boxes of oreos that I'm about to purchase.
