Go Team!

I have no idea when it comes to American Football and the Super Bowl... NOTHING! But I do know that I LOVE this dessert table I found over at Bakerella.

The make shift grand stand is such a creative way to display the jersey cookie pops and those cupcakes topped with itty, bitty steel helmuts are soooo cute! Actually, all the themed treats get a 'touchdown' from me!

As easy as A, B, C

For those of us living 'Down Under', the kids have just returned back to school for the new year after a long summer break. So imagine my delight when I came across this gem of a dessert table created by Leoni at Just call me Martha to mark the occasion which coincided with her daughter's birthday. From the pencil rolls to the chalkboard milk labels (my fave thing!) and clever use of foundation lettering for the bunting... Leoni, you go to the top of this class with this effort!
