Baptism Luncheon Food Table

Thank you to everyone who is visiting from Pinterest!  I haven't posted to Crafty Kate in quite a while.  Please visit me over at https://twitchetts.blogspot.com

I was so excited to do a fun food table for Little Miss’s baptism.  It was the first time I could do something “girlie”.  Of course I spent a month cruising Pinterest for ideas.  I must admit, I love the way it turned out!

I knew that planning a luncheon with a newborn would be challenging, so I kept the food simple.  Build your own sandwiches with potato salad, pasta salad, and melons.

I got a little fancier with the drinks.  (Or at least I made them look fancier)  They were just strawberry Kool-Aide with kiwi slices and lemonade with strawberries slices.  Both tasted delicious.
I found a couple of easy and yummy dessert recipes on pinterest.  The cookies are from Cherished Bliss and the cupcakes are from Polish the Stars.
Both desserts were huge hits! 
A special shout out to my sister-in-law who whipped up a delicious frosting, completely last minute!
The vases were empty Frappuccino bottles and a mason jar filled with flowers from Dollar Tree. 
The streamer was a fun project that I’ll post more about later this week.
The cupcake stand was a project that I whipped up.  It was super easy, but I'll share more on that later this week too.
The whole table came together really well.
Why can't sandwhich condiments be prettier colors?!? 
But I must admit, since I’m a procrastinator, I had lots of help getting everything set up.  And it was all done with a house full of hungry family.  So I have to thank everyone that helped.
It was a fun luncheon to celebrate such an important day in Little Miss’s young life!
