Celebrate 40 Years (the dessert table)

I have been in love with dessert tables at parties for way too long, and my parents 40th was the perfect opportunity for a little dessert table. It’s so fun to celebrate them!

Isn’t it fun?! It was a total labor of love.

YES – I did all the paper craft party decor…and NO – I didn’t bake a thing, but that’s okay, because my local grocery store and “Little Debbie” DO! :)

For all the party decor, I used these dies from Lifestyle Crafts:

-the rectangle box with the clear plastic sheets
-mini flags for the cupcakes
-treat bags for the cookies + scallop circle
– belly band and insert for vase wrapped and filled with candy
-wraps for the little apple juice bottles + the seal in the center

Thanks Mom & Dad for giving me a reason to roll out the “yellow” carpet. :)
