Trash to Treasure Cake Plate

Hi friends!

How are you?  Are you in a trash to treasure frame of mind?

Life has been cray cray here, ya know what I’m sayin’?

I’ve been having a blast flea market and garage sale shopping, so some fun projects are in the works!

AND…I have a child finishing her junior year of college and starting both a job and an internship; a child graduating from high school, looking for his first job, and preparing for college; a teenager finishing her sophomore year of high school and preparing to start a summer internship with an Ohio Senator’s campaign, and one more finishing 7th grade and plotting world domination.

Seriously.  If you’ve got young children, and are overwhelmed with parenting responsibilities…I wish I could tell you that it gets easier.

It just gets different.

So, anyway, let’s make something, shall we?

With a sweet 16 bonfire and a graduation party to plan, I’ve been on the hunt for budget friendly decor ideas that will work for both.

Each party will feature a dessert bar, so my search started with serving pieces.

A trip to the local Goodwill resulted in this plate, for $1.99

And these small candlesticks, 99 cents each.

For a more masculine themed grad party, I decided to combine my love of white and wood tones.

With a little Gorilla Glue. (affiliate link below)



And here’s the result.  A functional and pretty way to serve desserts.  I like the simplicity, cut crystal cake plates are not for me.

I took lots of photos.  (insert sheepish grin here)
