The first 4 photos taken by my good friend April...
I bought square white dishes at Ross a few months ahead of time, and stock piled them in my cupboards. I also purchased new matching glasses only $8! I had most of the apothecary jars already, and cake pedestals. (A few are Martha Stewart cake plates and the rest from various thrift stores and garage sales.)
I purchased some white "black out " fabric and cheesecloth for the table. (The cheesecloth gave it texture.)
The day of the party I made the tissue paper balls..the instructions are on Martha Stewart's website. (Because of the humidity here I couldn't make them too early, or they would be droopy).
My backdrop was foam core, covered with some flocked wrapping paper I had bought on clearance a while back. Light weight and easy to hang.
I bought some strawberries and dipped them in whipped cream frosting-again much less stressful and less expensive then trying to melt the white chocolate. This white olive dish only $2.49!
To celebrate our years together I stamped a frame , then stamped "15" and punched out the image with a Stampin' Up punch, and then taped two tags back to back together- with a toothpick in the center. The sugar pearls were purchased at Ben Franklin, the plain cupcakes from a bakery.
(Nice, big, perfectly baked cupcakes so worth the $8 dollars, and much less stressful.)
Donuts even look fancy! Marshmellows were covered with white frosting too, then I put lollipop sticks in them.
