We had some friends over for dinner Saturday evening, so I actually cleaned off my dining table! It had been covered with a half dozen craft projects including a sewing machine, a cricut machine, a paper cutter and other miscellaneous items. It stayed cleared off for about 36 hours!
I decided yesterday morning that I would use this opportunity to collect the platters and dishes I'm planning to use for the girls party. I just wanted to see what all I had so that I could determine if I needed any more. I haven't pulled out the candy just yet and I obviously don't have the food made, but later this week I think I'll determine what food/candy goes in what dish. I'll also work on placement, heights and/or remaining dishes required. I know for sure I will need to borrow my mom's cupcake stand and we'll see if I need anything else. Once all of that is settled I can finalize, print and make the food labels. Yippee!
I found some bright colored candy scoops in the Target dollar bin several months ago, but I might need to buy some more cheap scoops and tongs, depending on how much candy I have. I guess I could always just leave the scoops on the table and they can be dipped into whatever jar you choose. It's not like the candy scoops have to stay in/with the same candy.
Now, onto more party prep!
