{Customer Party} Ruby Anniversary


Where have I been?

Sorry, I've been a little MIA lately.  It's been a crazy week and I haven't had much extra time for blogging, let alone crafting.  What have I been up to?
My husband's grandparent's 60th anniversay party was this weekend and I was asked to create some custom cake pops, pretzel rods and bookmarks.  Which I'll post about tomorrow.

I was also asked to set up a dessert/candy table at an Anniversary party for the same day.  It was such an honor!
It was a Ruby Anniversary, which is the 40th year.  That was the theme.  That and the red, white and black colors.  I love how dramatic the colors looked and enjoyed creating the table to request.   
So, today I'm sharing the shots I took of the table.


The customer created a cake that I added to the table.  The colors and look coordinated perfectly, so I was happy to add it.


Upon request, I did a paper flower backdrop that really added to the bold, dramatic look.




She didn't want the table to be overwhelmed with candy, so I decided to add a few nutritious picks, like yogurt parfaits, fruit kebabs and popcorn.








It's always such a blast to set up a dessert table and plan a party, so I was definitely flattered that she asked me.  Thanks again.  I'm hoping everyone enjoyed themselves and the treats.

See you all tomorrow!
