I love how this backdrop and dessert table turned out! Both were very simple and inexpensive but had a lot of impact! For the backdrop, I started with a PVC pipe I got at the hardware store for less than two dollars and spray painted white (it had some red writing on it.) I believe it is 6 feet long and came all ready to go, I didn't need to have it cut or anything. For the curtain part I used orange fringed streamers (I cut them using scissors), strips of a red sheet that I got at Goodwill, and circle paper garland re-used from this party. (I love re-using decor!) I attached them to the pipe using hot glue. It was easy to make but time consuming, the whole thing including cutting the strips and fringing the streamers took about 4 hours.
And here's a shot of the cake - I LOOOVE how this turned out! It's so simple yet stunning. My friend Michelle at Designer Cakes with Classy Shapes made the cake and I made the glitter monogram cake topper. (Tutorial coming soon!) The orange stand is a tray that I flipped over and the red edged cake stand is from Crate and Barrel that I got on clearance after Christmas.Besides the cake, everything else was handmade by me or friends or store bought, it was a great way to save money and everyone loved it! I wasn't able to get very good pictures, though. We served-
~Cake Pops (thanks to a dear friend for helping me make them! Even though they were kind of a nightmare! Lol!)
~Vanilla Cupcakes (I made them and another friend frosted them, thank you!)
~Pound Cake Petit Fours
~Brownie Bites (store bought)
~Marmalade Mousse Cups (not pictured, they were in little plastic cups with wooden spoons, set on the oval orange tray in front of the cake)
I was amazed at how inexpensive it was to do all the desserts!
(The cake stands are from Costco.)
Later this week I'll have the rest of the decor and the sanctuary to show you, thanks for stopping by!
