Today was a day of shopping and gathering. Fresh ingredients to make the cupcakes ~ spinach dip and other things. A precious outfit for Clara for me to give Emily at her other shower that her family is giving her Feb. 14th. Also, I found a teddy bear that has the sound of the mother's heartbeat, so I had to get it as well.
I've been trying to think of a way to display the cupcakes creatively without buying one of those cupcake stand/holder things. Well, believe it or not, I don't have a cake plate (but have sold a blue million of them at the antique store!) but found one at W-mart with a dome for only 9.97!! Then I purchased a parfait glass and another glass plate, each only 1.50 or so. I will turn the glass upside down onto the cake plate and place the smaller plate over top to have a two tiered glass display. It won't hold all of the cupcakes but at least I will have a pretty display that all of the items can be reused after the party! Here are a few found images of what I purchased:
I hope that you are having a wonderful week!! Things should calm down here a bit after this weekend ~ Thank you so much for sweet comments!!!
