Phew! No more baking for me!



Yesterday I my younger sister & some of her friends came over to hang out & eat some desserts. I wanted to create an outdoor living room so I decorated the patio with these plastic frames {which were from Target's Mother's Day media} & made these little black flowers {thanks to Wendy for posting that flower tutorial I had been asking about!}.

I also hung some little white flowers above the table & covered the inside of a larger frame with B&W polka-dotted wrapping paper {I couldn't stand the sight of our ugly shed}.

For dessert...I made some no-bake cookies {a favorite of mine}, russian tea cakes, chocolate filled croissants, scones with homemade raspberry jam & cream and served fresh giant strawberries.

Oh, and to continue the B&W theme, I made stands from black glass plate set atop milk glass vases...they were a perfect fit!
