I could NOT leave the store without these, they were so stinking adorable!! The colors are gorgeous, and the price....well, can you say a DOLLAR??? YES, MOST WERE A DOLLAR!! The plates were a dollar, the tablecloth $3.50, the placecard holders were $1, the potholder $1, the cupcake holders $1. The cupcake plates were $1.50. They even had recipe cards!! I can't believe how adorable these items are for the price. I don't like vinyl tablecloths, but I can see this one used a LOT in the future at the school and here at home with my little ones. It was perfect for being able to easily clean up spills from sprinkles, icing, and such, PLUS, the colors are YUMMY! I can't believe how adorable this table turned out with just items from the Dollar General!!!
I used my Kirkland's candleholders in the middle of the table as the centerpiece and filled them with cupcake sprinkles and then topped them off with a tealight in each one. I took leftover Christmas bows from my daughter's Christmas tree (it was a cupcake theme, too) and tied them around the napkin ring holders just to give them a little more color.
We had a great time making our cupcakes. You had to make the recipe you sat in front of! We made red velvet, chocolate, coconut, and carrot cake. YUMMY!!! I'm taking them to work tomorrow to share. :)
I love how a few dollar items from the dollar store enabled me to help create some very special memories with my daugther this afternoon. After having four sons, I am kinda getting used to doing the girly thing!
I'm working on changing some things in the kitchen, and I am DEFINITELY looking forward to the looooong weekend next week to get a few projects around the inside of the house taken care of.
Have a great week!
I'm partying this week at Debbie's Newbie Party, Linda at Coastal Charm, Marty at a Stroll Through Life, and Susan at Between Naps on the Porch!
